The project aims to promote awareness and identify care home research priorities amongst care home staff in eight care homes in the Torbay and South Devon region.
To collectively guide the development of a local research strategy and develop future portfolios of studies to expand the links between care homes and key stakeholder research organisations.
The project will support staff to develop a changing culture of research within care homes through educational sessions, participatory group discussion and exploration.
The project is funded by the NIHR CRN (South West Peninsula) and supported by PenARC and the Peninsula Clinical Trials Unit (PenCTU)
