Encouraging managers of care homes for older adults to participate in research

Abstract: Purpose Research in care homes requires the co-operation of care home managers. Noting the challenges faced by the care home sector, the purpose of this paper is to consider ways in which research studies can encourage care home managers and their homes to participate in research. Design/methodology/approach The discussion is informed by two research projects which are used to explore methods of encouraging managers of care homes to participate in research. One of the studies included interviews with care ho… Show more

“…Study 1 is the Measuring Outcomes Of Care Homes (MOOCH) project, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Social Care (2015-18). 20,153,154 This study recruited 294 older care home residents from 34 care homes (20 nursing and 14 residential) in two local authorities in England. Study 2 collected primary data as part of this research (see Chapter 4).…”

“…The first is the MOOCH project, funded by the NIHR School for Social Care (2015-19). 20,153,154 The second is this study, MiCareHQ, using data collected in WP2 (2017-20). Both studies used a cross-sectional design, in which researchers spent time in each care home, using the ASCOT-CH4 toolkit (herein referred to as CH4) to carry out observations and interviews with staff and (where possible) residents and family members.…”

“…Our finding extends earlier research identifying challenges in supporting a sector that has a wide range of Providers and knowledge users with varied access to libraries, technology, and training and development budgets (Rutter & Fisher, 2013). Consequently, further work to address how to engage managers in research (Smith et al, 2019) and improve the relevance and usefulness of research knowledge would be beneficial. As Nutley, Davies, and Hughes (2019) argue, there is a need to be realistic about the extent to which research-informed recommendations will be compelling in a sector where tacit hierarchies of evidence may look very different from explicit methodological and technical hierarchies.…”

“…Thus, care home provision differs regionally and locally depending on Providers, local demographics, supply structures and actions of local authorities (Competition & Markets Authority, 2017). The sector also faces significant pressures relating to staffing, finance and regulation (Smith et al, 2019). Many older people living in nursing (personal care with nursing) and residential (personal care without nursing) care homes have increasingly high levels of dependency, cognitive impairment and multimorbidity (Gordon et al, 2014).…”

“…It can also promote staff professional development (Jenkins et al , 2016), drive up prestige and improve the perception of care homes (Johnstone and Donaldson, 2019). In recognition of this, the care regulator in England explicitly encourages providers to participate in research (Smith et al , 2019).…”
