Ten to Men to run webinars on extensive men’s health research study

Ten to Men, the extensive Australian Longitudinal Study on male health which began in 2013 and is approaching its third wave, will run information sessions on the research via two webinars next month.

Following the recent release of wave 2.1 data, these online webinars will provide an excellent opportunity for registrants to hear directly from the Ten to Men study team.

The webinars will help researchers, policy makers, policymakers, students, or anyone else who wants to learn more about Ten to Men data, to “gain confidence in understanding and navigating the datasets”.

The first webinar, on November 6, will explain what the Ten to Men study is and how it has been run, including sampling methods and overview of data.

The second session on November 20 will explain how the data is being used, how it can be accessed and future directions.

The Ten to Men study was initiated in 2010 as part of the Federal Government’s release of the first National Male Health Policy to generate “findings to inform government policy and program development in male health”

The first Wave in 2013-14 sought health and lifestyle information from over 15,000 men and boys aged 10 to adulthood via surveys and interviews. 

Wave 2 data were collected in 2015-16. Both were run by the University of Melbourne, however Wave 3 will be conducted by the Australian Institute of Family Studies
