Rapid review to gather evidence for the ways in which care homes have arranged communication between themselves, residents and family carers. This may be at a time of enforced closure, such as due to the SARs virus or C-19 or reporting empirical work which has been undertaken to explore use of different approaches such as use of technology (SMART phones, iPad, Facebook Portal).
It is proposed that the findings of this review will highlight good practice which could be implemented within the current restrictions to care homes across the globe but also for ‘distance’ carers across all age spectrums and different types of care settings, i.e. facilities for older people, learning disability, respite and short-term care provision.
Methods: Rapid review of empirical published studies
