The RIPE Project (Researching Interventions that Promote Ethics in Social Care). This is an exciting research project being run by the International Care Ethics Observatory at University of Surrey, in collaboration with the Ethox Foundation (an independent registered charity with an international reputation in applied ethics). The RIPE study will evaluate the effectiveness of different types of ethics education in supporting care givers in delivering ethical care in residential care homes for older people.
The research team are currently looking for any member of staff in care homes who comes into contact with residents. The request is that they fill out 3 short questionnaires over 3 separate occasions, 2 months apart. The participants can be any member of staff who comes into contact with residents. In return they will be paid £15, get a certificate from the University of Surrey and will be invited to a conference at the end of the project.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Matthew Peacock at the University of Surrey.
The National Care Homes Research and Development Forum was established in 2003 to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to network, share information and ideas arising from their work.
