Care Home Research: Progress, Pitfalls and Potential
Speaker: Professor Adam Gordon

Adam is Professor of Care of Older People at the University of Nottingham, a Consultant Geriatrician at the Royal Derby Hospital and President Elect of the British Geriatrics Society. He has been doing research with care homes for over a decade and has played an active role in writing guidelines for, providing support to, and conducting research with the care home sector during the pandemic. This has included work on peer-support for care home managers during the pandemic, point-of-care testing in care homes, and work to develop and lead a national RCT platform for COVID prophylaxis in care homes.
His talk will reflect on the lessons for research conducted with and by the care home sector during the pandemic, and what we can learn from this as we approach some normality during the process of 2021.
This webinar is jointly organised by PenARC , as the inaugural event in its Executive Group Communications Seminar Series, and the University of Exeter and Care Homes Knowledge Collaboration (ExCHANGE), and will be of interest to all researchers who have an interest in working with care homes, as well as care home providers, staff, and other professionals working alongside care homes.
The seminar proper will be followed by an optional half-hour networking session, 11:00 – 11:30, for those working in and around care homes and care homes research in the South West.
Please note that this talk will be recorded and the recording shared publicly via the PenARC website.
