Collective Care Future: survey on care practice

Second theme: care practice - share your views and experiences

The first phase of the Collective Care Future programme is now underway, focused on understanding the pandemic experience across many different areas of practice both in care homes and care at home.

If you have experience of working or connecting with care homes or care at home services during COVID-19, we invite you to take part in this survey series to share your experience. We’d love to hear from care providers, front line staff, relatives and loved ones of people supported, individuals in care settings and those working in roles in other sectors or parts of the sector who work alongside care services. You can choose to take part in as many or as few of the surveys as you wish.

This week the survey is focused on the theme of ‘Care Practice’. In this theme we are interested to explore the ways in which the delivery of care and support has changed, across areas such as dementia, palliative and end of life care, assessment and care planning.  It includes ways of delivering care which you may have adopted or been aware of previously and those which you have experienced for the first time during the pandemic.

The survey has 4 sections: Impact on Care Practice, Regulation & Guidance, Outcomes & Priorities, and Future Care Practice.

We would appreciate your support in circulating the survey as widely as possible across your networks, including to any individuals who access care and support and their families who may like to share their experiences. 

If you don’t feel that you have had direct working experience with the independent care sector during the pandemic but you would like to be involved in the second phase of the programme, please let us know at caref[email protected] and we will be in contact in due course.
