To nurture environments that care with patients, users, and communities
HSMC undertake research which helps to locate social care within the broader health and care landscape. This includes externally funded programmes of work such as the School for Social Care Research and the ESRC Centre for Care.
Standalone projects work closely with policymakers, practitioners, and people with lived experience to co-design research that makes a difference. Research includes supporting early intervention in mental health for children and young people as well as understanding and supporting healthy sexual behaviours and education within these groups.
HSMC research explores the experiences of vulnerable groups within care settings. This includes patient experience as well as the experience of caregivers. It also includes providing a greater voice, improved access for LGBTQ+ young people.
A thread running thought its offer is to also gain practitioner experiences at the frontline of service delivery.
