ENRICHEnabling Research in Care Homes
Resources for Residents family and public
Written by care home staff and researchers, our case studies provide real life examples of challenges and lessons learned by those involved in research. They help describe how others have approached particular challenges, such as acquiring consent, involving care home managers and gaining staff buy-in.
The studies also illustrate the short-term and long-term benefits to care homes and help staff to understand what is involved.
We have also collated a set of Useful Links to organisations, resources and other information.
