Creating an Impact: Social Care Research in Practice
Wednesday, 26 November 2014 from 10:00 to 16:30 (GMT)
This conference, jointly hosted by the Personal Social Services Research Unit at the LSE and the NIHR School for Social Care Research, will bring together learning and recommendations from just over two years of activity on knowledge exchange and impact in adult social care. The conference will present findings from a LSE HEIF 5-funded project, Creating an Impact: Social Care Research in Action (SCEiP), which aimed to: bring researchers and social care professionals together to identify key issues in social care and apply research evidence to those priority issues; further enhance dialogue between research, practice and policy stakeholders to support joint knowledge development and exchange; increase the demand for, and utilisation of, research evidence by professionals; and explore ways to demonstrate the impact of social care research.
This conference will discuss findings from the study, as well as wider activities funded by the NIHR School for Social Care Research, discuss examples of non-traditional methods for knowledge exchange and methods for impact assessment, as well as recommendations for next steps. Outputs and guides for knowledge exchange and impact from the SCEiP project will also be launched. The Conference will feature contributions from experts, researchers and practice colleagues in the adult social care field.
The full programme for the Conference will be available shortly. The Conference will start at 10.00 and finish by 16.30. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
This event is free to attend. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
Any cancellations should be received by 12 November 2014 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellations received after this date - and no-shows - will be subject to a £25 charge.
