A debate on quality and safety in healthcare

Perspectives in the nursing home – the start of the journey

Yesterday, Qiming and I travelled to the nursing home that has kindly granted us access to conduct some research for Qiming’s Master’s project. This research is similar to that of my PhD in that in will be using the nursing home as a case study to explore multiple perspectives of quality and safety in the care home environment including staff, relatives and residents. We return next week to conduct an observational study at the quarterly relative’s meeting and interviews with selected relatives and the resident rep.

The care home is excited to be associated with the University of Warwick and actively participating in research in such an important field and hope to use the findings to improve services.
