The future of day centres for older people: in search of the evidence on their role, outcomes and commissioning
Funded by a Dunhill Medical Trust Research Training Fellowship, Katharine’s research aims to improve the understanding of day centres for older people by setting out to paint, from multiple perspectives, a rich picture of how day centres are perceived, what they offer, who uses them, how and what they contribute to the lives of those involved in them, and how they relate to healthcare services. She will be using mixed methods within a multiple case study approach.
Further information about Katharine, her research and activities can be found on the PURE research portal.
