Sub theme 3 - Improving caring environments and patient involvement

The aim of this sub-theme is to improve voice, choice and control for older people in all care settings, with a particularly focus on people who tend to be left out of decision-making.  We are researching the best ways to train frontline staff to be more inclusive, but we are also investigating other system issues that hamper meaningful involvement

Professor Jackie Bridges’ programme of work focuses on the organisation and delivery of health care to older people with complex needs. She leads a major programme of research focused on professional work and organisational change related to older people’s care, and steers the development and delivery of associated educational provision within Health Sciences. Jackie leads is an investigator for NIHR ARC Wessex.  Contact Jackie
