Description:

People with “lived experience” can influence research, making it more meaningful and relevant. Public involvement in care home research has typically included older people living in the community or family carers, but residents themselves are rarely involved. COVID-19 stopped our planned public involvement in care homes, as researchers could no longer visit. Perhaps care home activity providers could arrange research public involvement as an activity, as they were part of the staff? We worked with the National Activity Provider Association to try this. Activity providers ran public involvement activities about our research with their residents. Activity providers fed back to the research team, and resident insights informed our research. We now want to learn more about this method of public involvement.
