East Anglia homes to take part in COVID IPC study

Researchers at the University of East Anglia will investigate how people who live, visit and work in care homes have coped with COVID-19 infection prevention and control measures.

They will work with residents, families and care home staff in 15 local homes to better understand their experience of measures such as mask-wearing, visiting restrictions and social distancing during the pandemic.

The study, which has been funded by the National Institute of Health Research School of Social Care Research (NIHR SSCR), will help identify future measures for infection prevention and control.

The ‘Understanding the lived experience of infection transmission in care homes’ (UCAIRE) study will run for one year. The project is a collaboration between researchers at UEA, Newcastle University, health and social care providers Care UK and a member of the public with extensive experience of supporting care-home residents.
