Description

Training and support interventions for paid home care workers: latest evidence

Dr Claudia Cooper and Dr Penny Rapaport (University College London)

Claudia Cooper and Penny Rapaport will present their work to develop a training and support intervention for paid home care workers. Claudia will discuss findings from their recent evidence synthesis in this area. Penny will review the evidence base for effective implementation of interventions in care homes, and their current experiences of doing this in the MARQUE study. Finally, plans to build on this work to develop an intervention for home care workers will be discussed.

Dr Kritika Samsi (SCWRU, King’s College London)

The presentation will specifically elaborate on the theme of perceptions of a client’s death”, which includes home care workers’ experiences of the death, the relevance of ‘emotional labour’ in their actions and reactions, and the support available to them.
