Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue from Journal of Men’s Health will focus on the quality of life and healthy aging of older adults. In addition to the effects of the aging process, the population of older adult men exhibit a high incidence of chronic illnesses, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases that demand a great deal of medical, nursing and palliative care. This wide group of conditions has negative repercussions on all aspects of the male population’s quality of life. We are interested in fostering a global understanding of causes, diagnosis, treatment, care, therapy and interventions related to healthy aging in men. We welcome theoretical articles, original research, literary reviews and commentaries regarding the process of aging and how it relates to men’s quality of life. Qualitative research is key in this field; accordingly, we place particular emphasis on the demand for studies regarding the experiences of older male patients and their relatives, caregivers or healthcare providers. This Special Issue also accepts studies regarding teaching-learning experiences and research protocols focusing on healthy aging and chronic disease in academic, social and healthcare settings in general. We invite studies from the fields of medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, psychology, social work, social sciences and sexology that focus on the relation between aging, health, exercise, sexuality or environmental factors.
