Research Seminar - Perspectives of Decision making in a UK Care Home: A grounded Theory Study

Older people resident in care homes are amongst the most vulnerable and dependent in any society. This study aimed to explore perspectives on decision making considering the appropriateness of decision making and how residents can be empowered and their vulnerability minimised. It used grounded theory methodology in a case study framework, in a single care home. Residents, their relatives and staff participated in the study which used interviews; informal conversations; observation and examination of documentation. Participants' perspectives were considered through a values based lens with emphasis on autonomy and dignity as the most dominant in policy, ethical discourse, professional and empirical literature. Some of the salient findings and their implications will be discussed. 

This is a lunchtime seminar so please feel free to bring your lunch with you.
