Turning Care Homes Research into Practice: How Can Care Homes Research Have More Positive Impact on Everyday Care Home Practice?’

The British Society of Gerontology Care Home Special Interest Group Autumn Symposium brings to you this free event that focuses on how care homes research can have a more positive impact on everyday care home practice? Register for your place now!

Friday 26th August 2022


Much care homes research has clear implications for care homes policy and practice.  However, many researchers struggle to disseminate their findings in ways that allow effective translation into real-world impact, whilst care providers struggle to find the evidence they need to inform their practice.  The aims of this event are to identify key barriers and facilitators to translating care homes research into practice, and consider what actions we can take to maximise the positive impact of care homes research on everyday care home practice.

Guest speakers

This event will feature presentations from our expert panellists, who will each share their insights into how we could more effectively translate care homes research into policy and practice.

o   Professor Adam Gordon: Professor of the Care of Older People, University of Nottingham

o   Nuno Lopes (Director of Care) and Rosalind Gray (Head of Therapies), Nightingale Hammerson, care providers

o   Dr Kellyn Lee: Project Officer for ENRICH and Research Fellow at the University of Southampton

o   Glen Garrod: Executive Director of Adult Care and Community Wellbeing for Lincolnshire County Council

The event will also include opportunities for attendees to discuss and share their views on what could be done to maximise the impact of research on care homes practice and policy.
