Join us for a session with researchers from Scottish universities on the findings from their recent study.

In this 1.5 hour session, researchers from the University of Edinburgh, University of the West of Scotland, the University of Strathclyde and Iriss share learning from their ‘rapid COVID study’ funded by Chief Scientists Office.

This event will be an opportunity to learn and discuss findings from a report investigating the impact of COVID-19 care home lockdowns on families. The event is about continuing the conversation, with short inputs from the CSO research team on the impact of Phase 1 lockdown (May-Oct 2020) on family carers, and creative practices that have helped connect families.

Reports on the CSO-funded research are published on the Creative Covidcare website.

For information on the preliminary findings then please see the ALLIANCE Opinion Piece written by Professors Debbie Tolson and Lynn Jamieson, lead researchers on the project.
