ENRICHEnabling Research in Care Homes
The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) has launched a new online course called ‘What is Health Research?’ The three week course is aimed at patients, public, carers and anyone with a keen interest in learning more about the world of health research.
New research led by Dr Kritika Sami at King’s College London has concluded that there is no universal ‘best time’ for people with dementia to move to a care home. The research was funded by the NIHR School for Social Care Research and drew on the experiences of people living with dementia and family carers as well as social workers and care home managers.
A new NIHR centre will look to improve research relevance for all by combining the strengths of current NIHR approaches to research dissemination and to patient and public involvement, engagement and participation (PPIE).
