Care Planning - Paid Research Opportunity

Care Planning - Developing a set of key principles

We would like to invite you to complete two online surveys to provide us with feedback on an information resource that we have developed. Before you decide whether you would like to participate, it is important for you to understand what this research will involve. Please take time to read the following information carefully and talk to others about the study if you wish. If there is anything that is not clear or if you would like more information, please contact us using the details at the end of this document. 

Why is the research being conducted?

English care homes are legally required to develop a ‘clear care and/or treatment plan, which includes agreed goals’ and make this document ‘available to all staff and others involved in providing the care’. The CQC has defined care planning as a process ‘focused on the person’s whole life, including their goals, skills, abilities and how they prefer to manage their health’. According to the CQC, Care Planning should ‘empower [people] to make choices and have as much control and independence as possible’. We understand from speaking to care home staff that care plans' contents can vary considerably as can the involvement of care home residents and their family or friends. Therefore, this study aims to gather feedback on a draft "key principles" document relating to care planning.

Who can take part?

Health and social care professionals with experience of care planning in older adult care homes.

What's involved?

Participants will be asked to read over the key principles document attached to the bottom of this blog and provide feedback via a survey.

The reward

Eligible respondents who complete the survey will be provided with a £25 Amazon Voucher to say thank you.
