Reporting findings from Unit self-neglect and hoarding study back to participants
Nicole Steils presented findings from our NIHR School for Social Care Research funded study
Research Fellow Nicole Steils presented findings from a study on safeguarding and social care responses to self-neglect and hoarding behaviour among older people at a local Safeguarding Adults Board meeting. The presentation was attended by 20 Safeguarding leads and senior managers from agencies and organisations represented on the Board. The Board was involved in the study as a case study site and the team will continue to work with local staff to inform and improve services and practice in the area.
The study, funded by the NIHR School for Social Care Research, has been led in its later stages by Nicole who, in May 2022, lead-authored an international evidence review on hoarding behaviour. See the project page for all our publications thus far.
