NIHR Visit-id: a study of care home visiting arrangements for older people during Covid-19.

Can you spare 20 – 30 minutes to complete an online qualitative survey (answering in your own words) about the development and implementation of your care homes visiting policy for older people during Covid-19?

Friday 9th July 2021

We are seeking senior care home staff to take part in a research study about visiting arrangements for older people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The study is led by researchers at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR).

If you choose to take part you will be asked to complete a 20-30 minute online qualitative survey (where you write the answer in your own words) about developing and implementing your care home’s visiting policy. If you prefer, we will complete the survey with you in a telephone or Zoom call or we can send a paper copy.

To take part either click here to be taken directly to the survey, or email one of the research team, who will be happy to answer any questions you have:

Klara Lorenz-Dant (k.h.lorenz@lse.ac.uk)

Josie Dixon (j.e.dixon@lse.ac.uk or 07989 070777) or

Kellyn Lee (k.lee38@lse.ac.uk)

At the end of the survey, we will also ask if you are willing to take part in a follow-up qualitative interview. This is optional. Care homes selected for interview will receive £50 for their activity fund.

We really want to hear about your views and experiences and ensure they are communicated to Government and other stakeholders.

Your information will be entirely confidential; only the research team will see your answers. We will report findings thematically, and no-one taking part will be identified in any report.

We are hugely grateful to you for your participation. Thank you.
