Nationwide Survey of Care Home Staff in Ireland

This research study aims to understand how care home staff in Ireland manage responsive behaviour, associated with dementia, before and during the Covid-19 pandemic, and to identify resources needed to improve care for residents with dementia during and after the Covid-19 pandemic. The findings will be presented to the HSE and HIQA to inform policy and practice.
