The Yorkshire and Humber ENRICH team have been shortlisted for a Nursing Times Award in the Clinical Research Nursing category for their work with care homes in the region. The award shortlisting recognises their work in improving standards of research delivery in care homes, enhancing the experiences of residents and staff taking part in research and increasing awareness of care home research.

When people think of research they often think of clinical trials and scientists in white coats in laboratories, but social and technological research is equally important. Research into the best ways to care for people is paramount as current standards often fall short of the ideal. This is often due to, in the past, low pay and low public esteem as to the work that goes on in care homes.
