Health and Social Wellbeing is one of a series of broad research themes that underpin the research activities of the School of Social Policy.
Health and social wellbeing
Overall, the study will include: 1. A review of the literature on the appropriateness of emergency admissions, identifying the rate and cause of potentially avoidable admissions and any potential solutions proposed; 2. Interviews to identify clinical and managerial views on actions being taken locally to reduce the number of admissions; 3. Detailed insights into the cause and experience of admission from older people and their carers; 4. Additional information from a lead medic; 5. A focus group in each site which will comment on vignettes derived from the interviews with older people.
This theme builds on the work of the pilot CLAHRC which evaluated improvements in care for a number of individual long-term conditions, including stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. There are two priorities: 1. To evaluate new ways of delivering integrated care to people with multiple long-term conditions; 2. To evaluate new ways of improving patient wellbeing.
