Leeds care homes to be improved through research

Two nursing homes in Leeds are to be the test bed
for a new research programme aiming to improve the quality of life of
nursing home residents.

The project is an innovative new partnership between Leeds Care
Association and the University of Leeds, and it was showcased to the
Lord Mayor of Leeds at a launch event on 06 September 2018.

The NICHE-Leeds (Nurturing Innovation in Care
Home Excellence in Leeds) partnership will consult with people living
and working in nursing homes to identify areas where research evidence
could lead to improvements to the quality of life and standard of care
for residents, as well as improve quality of work for staff. They will
also evaluate the impact on social care, the NHS and financial costs.

The programme of work will address important clinical topics, for
example nutrition and hydration, pressure care, falls, dental care; and
administrative topics such as work environment and staffing. It will
also consider strategies for successful translation and implementation
of evidence-based innovations in nursing homes.
