Cross-CLAHRC Care Homes Research

23 November 2017 10.00am – 16.30pm


Including an evening dinner for all delegates on 22 November


Friends Meeting House, Euston, London


This cross-CLAHRC research event will showcase what CLAHRCs have achieved in care home* research to date and will foster learning from the variety of regional research that has national application and significance.

The event will provide a platform: for developing collaborations with care homes that can address the differences in how health and social care (and independent providers) are organised; to explore the implementation of evidence; and to look at how CLAHRCs can support research capacity building with care homes.

Bringing together researchers and stakeholders, this event will provide an agenda of interactive sessions where participants will:

  • Discuss a summary of the CLAHRC supported care home work, submitted and collated prior to the event in a briefing document for all participants
  • Examine what does and does not work when planning and undertaking care home research.
  • Contribute to a narrative of how CLAHRC supported research has made a difference to the care of older people living and dying in care homes.
  • Participate in a national collaboration to inform priority setting and future work in care home research

Who should attend?

  • CLAHRC Leads and researchers working in care homes* research
  • Professionals working in residential care services including care workers, managers, and commissioners
  • Service users and carers with experience of care home service provision who would like to be involved in shaping research

Stakeholder engagement and attendance to events is knowingly difficult, yet it is vital for meeting the objectives of this cross-CLAHRC theme, that a range of expertise is drawn upon. We are therefore asking all participating CLAHRCs to please contact known and new stakeholders in your region about the event to drive their participation.

*’Care Homes’ refers to all long term residential care provision across health and social care services (including independent providers).
