Project Summary

This research project focuses on whether ownership is relevant to the severity of COVID-19 outbreaks in the nursing home sector. It carries the title ‘The COVID-19 outbreak in the nursing home sector – does ownership matter?’

This research consists of (at least) two parts. Firstly, it will provide a rapid review of the evidence available on this topic. Secondly, this project will follow a case-study approach to embed the findings in their respective national context. This part of the research project will be our main contribution. We will use input from various countries (e.g. Canada and Australia) to draw conclusions. If there is sufficient data, we will analyse the relationship between the composition of the long-term care sector (i.e. for-profit providers’ share of total beds in nursing homes and/or number of homes) and the share of COVID-19 deaths in the long-term care sector across different countries.
