This research study examines individual’s experiences of unemployment from a psychological
perspective. It presents the different psychological and financial effects of unemployment and presents
the different theories developed on the effects of job loss on the individual. It will also examine the
central role which work contributes to an individual’s life. Finally, it will investigate how a person deals
with unemployment and copes with the transition. A qualitative approach was selected as the research
method for this study, through the use of six semi-structured interviews. The research findings indicate
that unemployment can affect an individual’s psychological well-being. Unemployment can leave some
individuals with feelings of worthlessness, a lack of identity, lack of motivation, feelings of embarrassment
and increased stress levels. However, the unemployed do not all share similar experiences of
unemployment as noted in the findings and are not all unhappy with their unemployment situation.

The study sought to explore patients' motivations and expectations for dental implants. In this study
a single-setting, qualitative research through an exploratory design was utilized through semi-structured,
telephone interviews were conducted with nine patients who had consulted a restorative dental
practitioner with an interest in implantology about the possibility of replacing their missing teeth with
dental implants. Interview transcripts were subjected to thematic analysis to identify relevant themes.
The study revealed that the main theme to emerge was 'normality' and that participants expected
implants to restore their oral-related quality of life to 'normal'. It was concluded that patients' belief that
dental implants are just like natural teeth could be cause for concern if it leads them to treat them as
such, and thereby not follow the recommended specialist care they require. The findings emphasize the
importance of good dental practitioner-patient communication in assessing expectations of treatment
and outcomes.

At the current time, people aged 85 years and over are identified as the fastest growing sector of
our ageing population and generally assumed to be the most demanding for care. This thesis challenges
this stereotypical assumption and aims to address the gap in current knowledge, bringing a detailed
understanding of the influences contributing to ‘ageing well’ by including the voice of older people
Applying a convergent parallel mixed methods approach containing two theoretical strands of
data: (i) quantitative from ‘The Newcastle 85+ Pilot Study’, comprising structured interviews with n=116
participants [47 male/69 female]; and (ii) qualitative from additional in-depth interviews with n=17 of
these participants [9 male/8 female]. All data collection took place within the participants’ usual place of
residence [own home/care home; nursing/residential] and analysis was according to the theoretical
foundation of each strand. Meta-inferences were led by qualitative themes with quantitative findings
providing context. All participants were born in 1918 and permanently registered with a general practice
within the City of Newcastle upon Tyne, North East of England.
Findings revealed: (i) past life experiences have relevance as an influencing factor for ‘ageing well’;
(ii) perspectives of the older individual need to be included when exploring health needs and planning
resource allocation; (iii) the contribution of social connectedness and informal support should be
considered as influencing factors of ‘ageing well’. An overarching discussion concluded that ‘ageing well’
is a fluid concept, sensitive to the lived context and history of an individual. Examining ‘ageing well’ in this
way not only provides opportunities for future research and practice but also contributes to the
development of overall knowledge.
