Do you have practice issues following the Care and Support White Paper?

 Do you have practice issues about long-term care/conditions?

This is an exciting project which will draw together practice issues raised by practitioners with research evidence and work closely with researchers and practitioners to address those practice issues.  

  • Do you want to learn about what works in a particular area? For example, reablement, providing support for long term care or improving care quality?
  • Are you about to redesign a service? Would you like to work with a researcher to consider what the evidence recommends?
  • Do you think research asks the right questions?
  • Can you get your hands on research and use it in your day-to-day practice? How can researchers help you to do so?
  • Do you understand what researchers say and write? Would you like to help them to help you?

Using evidence (and research in particular) will make for more efficient and effective services and ultimately better outcomes for service users. This project is an opportunity for you to:

  • access experts and researchers whose research can help you improve your practice;
  • add to your own continuing professional development;
  • shape the research agenda and ensure researchers are asking the right questions; and
  • ensure the evidence generated is made accessible to practice.
