Margaret Butterworth Care Home Forum

June 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Margaret Butterworth Care Home Forum

The second Margaret Butterworth Care Home Forum of the year, we will hear from two speakers on two different care home topics. MBCHF is a forum for discussion and learning focused on dementia care in communal settings such as nursing homes, care homes and extra care housing.

The webinar will be on Wednesday the 14th of June, from 2.00-4.00 and will include two speakers:

James Faraday, ARC Dementia Fellow from the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, will share his work on improving mealtimes for people living with dementia. He will discuss a training intervention for care homes which he has created with care home staff, family carers and other experts by experience.

Lisa Irvine, from University of Hertfordshire will discuss the development of and initial findings from the Virtual International Care Homes Trials Archive (VICHTA). This is a new collaboration with University of Glasgow, where data from completed trials/studies have been combined and pooled to allow new research questions to be answered. The talk will outline how the archive will work, the process for requesting pooled data, and examples of future research questions, particularly focusing on ideas which may be generated from care home staff and residents themselves.

We will have time for questions and discussions after each presentation. Once you have registered on Eventbrite, you will receive the Zoom-link a few days before the webinar.
