Nicole Steils and colleagues are examining the nursing role in adult social care. Another major strand here is that focusing on the Personal Assistant role (studies led by: Caroline Norrie; Kritika Samsi; and, with UCL, Jo Moriarty and Jill Manthorpe). Kritika Samsi, Olivia Luijnenburg and colleagues widen the focus to ancillary workers in care homes. Deputy Director Ian Kessler leads on the Unit's major Nursing Associates study. Deputy Director George Stoye and colleagues analyse nursing supply in the broader economic context. Jo Moriarty leads our investigation into international educational partnerships in healthcare.
