When: Tuesday 6th July, 13:00 – 14:30 BST
This NIHR ARC event brings together practitioners from health and social care and all those interested in learning from the pandemic to support older people and staff living and working in care homes.
The webinar starts with a presentation of a completed study looking at visiting in care homes and how these findings can inform future practice. It then showcases three studies. One recently completed that compared the evidence on what needs to be in place for effective online consultations with the experience of health and social care staff during the pandemic, one with emerging findings and one, just starting.
The final session is a discussion between participants and speakers to share learning, support cross organisation working and enable researchers and practitioners to discuss what works for residents and staff.
