Learning from COVID-19: What could change for palliative care in care homes - 25th May 2021

This cross NIHR ARC care home network webinar on COVID-19  organised with NIHR ARC National Palliative and End of Life Care (ARC East of England and ARC South London) brought 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 started with the experience of care home staff and how working with researchers made a difference. It then showcased two studies, one with emerging findings and one just starting. The final session was 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.

Does Routine Social Care Data Exist? - 10 December 2020

What we learned at the routine data for applied social care research event

Every piece of social care data collected about an individual means something to that person and their family, making ‘routine data’ a misnomer. This was one of the insights from the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) West and Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) joint event held on 10 December. 

See presentations from speakers covering a diverse range of tpics, including developing national social care and care home data sets, patient flow, social care analytics and individual-linked data here.

ARC East of England's Professor Claire Goodman also presented the DACHA (Developing resources And minimum data set for Care Homes Adoption) project.
