The team at Oak Manor Care Home have been involved with ENRICH (Enabling Research in Care Homes) for the past year. At the end of March Dr Adam Peel, a Community Research Nurse presented Home Manager Laura Smith with a certificate of appreciation to the whole Oak Manor team for their engagement with the Research Ready Programme.
Oak Manor was happy to engage with ENRICH and their Research Ready Programme. It supports the delivery of high-quality research so that residents and people who need care and support can benefit from improvements to services.
Home Manager, Laura said “We were very pleased to be awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for all the engagement from Oak Manor Care Home team with the ENRICH Programme. As a team we have participated in various research projects as we recognise the benefit of supporting high quality research. By participating, we are supporting improvements to services, and this is something we are super proud to be a part of.
“The biggest piece of research we have been involved in is almost coming to an end. It is the AFRI-c study. This is a research study in 74 care homes to see if using air filters prevents the spread of infections in care home settings.
“This is something very close to all of our hearts, having seen first-hand the impact that COVID-19 can have. We are proud to be part of such incredible research and grateful to be recognized for our contributions as a team to improving outcomes”.
