Abstract

October 11th 2021 was Canadian Thanksgiving Day and LTCCOVID also hosted an international seminar on care home research. This enabled us both to discover similarities between the UK and Canada (Turkey for celebrations!) and connections through our research work in the care home sector through the pandemic.

The seminar enabled three research teams to share their findings from recently completed studies delivered by researchers (@livinginhope @EWolverson @SallyBlonde1 @carolinannwhite @dist_care @HinsliffK @Jayne_NurseProf @SarahCGriffiths @SALTY_LTC). All three studies, two conducted in the UK (at Hull and DMU) and one based in Atlantic Canada, had one central theme; to understand the experiences of the care home sector during the pandemic and imposed lockdowns or lockouts.
