Project Summary

THRIVE aims to understand Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)-registered nurses’ experiences of working in care homes for older people during the COVID-19 pandemic, how this impacted on resilience, mental health and well-being, and to collaboratively develop theory-informed approaches for ongoing and future support in this professional group.
The study will be undertaken in two phases:
o Phase 1: Key-informant interviews with NMC-registered nurses practising in care homes to describe and understand their distinct experiences of working during COVID-19 and its impact on their resilience, mental health and well-being, including the availability and appropriateness of support.
o Phase 2: Undertake a series of deliberative workshops to discuss findings and issues through constructive, co-produced dialogue to consider ideas (old and new) for developing strategies and interventions that support care-home nurses’ resilience, mental health and well-being.
