Overview for Funding

Funding to improve the participation and conduct of health services research in nursing and care homes

There are currently approximately 400,000 care home residents in the UK. The complexity and challenges of providing healthcare to care home residents are distinctly different from other care contexts, since complex interventions, such as exercise for falls prevention, and quality improvement methods that work in other health institutional settings, might not always be transferable to a care home setting. Thus, the care sector requires data to understand the health requirements of their residents and the services that enable them to live and die well.
