In this focused discussion we will talk about perspectives from different countries on the use of the photovoice method with older adults. We will delve into the experiences of Australia, USA, and the Netherlands. Photovoice is a qualitative visual research method that refers to photographs taken by the participants themselves. It is an effective tool for eliciting older persons’ perceptions of their communities, During this discussion we will explore the use of photovoice in different research contexts and with divergent issues studied. Moreover we will touch upon the important features, advantages, possible challenges, and implications of the photovoice method.
