Event description

Description

Many people currently experience care-giving in later years in the form of care home residence, either permanently or for temporary respite. Yet many media reports tend to focus upon instances of bad care, and the idea of moving into a care home can raise significant fears and worries both for the individual and their family members.

Our event looks at what academic research can say about good care in residential and nursing care homes from different social science perspectives, covering organisational psychology, nursing and sociology. The purpose is to investigate and discuss (1) the behaviours and practices that comprise good care-giving, and (2) how these behaviours and practices might be promoted and sustained in residential and nursing care homes for older people.

The session will begin with three short presentations from research from the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University:

Professor Paula Hyde (Professor of Organisations and Society and Director of Health Services Research Centre, University of Manchester), on organising and providing good quality care in residential settings;

Professor Josie Tetley (Professor of Nursing - Ageing & Long-Term Conditions, MMU), Dr Kirsten Jack (Reader in Learning & Teaching Development, MMU) and Professor Alison Chambers (Pro-Vice Chancellor, Faculty of Health, Psychology & Social Care, MMU), on impacting, inspiring and informing the education and learning of care home staff; and

Professor David Holman (Professor of Organisational Psychology, Alliance Manchester Business School) and Dr Maurice Nagington (Lecturer in Nursing, University of Manchester), on what it means to be gentle in care-giving.

Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Professor Deborah Sturdy OBE, Royal Hospital Chelsea (Chelsea Pensioners).

A light lunch and refreshments will be provided. The event is organised by the Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA).


Open to all.
