What have we learnt about delivering high-quality palliative and end of life care in care homes during COVID-19?

25th May 2021, 14:00 - 15:30

This cross NIHR ARC event brings together practitioners from health and social care and all those interested in taking forward learning from the pandemic to support palliative and end of life care in care homes. The webinar starts with the experience of care home staff and how working with researchers made a difference. It then showcases two studies, one with emerging findings and one, just starting. The final session is a discussion between participants and speakers to share learning, support cross-organisation working and enable researchers and practitioners to discuss what works for residents and staff.
