COVID-19 care home sectors study

COVID-19 care home sectors study

This study seeks to understand how care homes accessed peer-support during the pandemic, and how isolated homes did, or did not, link into these networks. The aim is to establish generalisable rules about how to work collaboratively with care homes, produce resources where knowledge gaps have been identified and facilitate practical evidenced-based solutions to problems the care home sector still faces. The researchers will also determine if longer-term lessons can be learnt about bridging the gaps within and between different health and social care providers.
