Abstract

Residential care facilities for the elderly have around half a million beds in the UK, are a source of a growing number of hospital admissions, often act as sentinels for wider disease outbreaks, and house a population with complex co-morbidities. Despite this the sector is relatively under-researched. Using case studies from care home work at BSMS, this interactive workshop will outline barriers to research and explore how they can be overcome to deliver publishable work with real-world impact. The workshop will include: what to expect when researching in care homes, how to successfully recruit in a sector with high levels of corporate reputational fear, the legal framework for researching in populations with impaired capacity, and the ethical tensions around studies in places that are both sites of care and peoples homes, often their last. Participants will have opportunities to talk about their own research plans and share solutions.
