Nursing homes are rich repositories of data, yet are underutilized for controlled research studies. This book is a hands-on guide to conducting long-term care research in both nursing homes and home care settings. It offers an overview of possible research in the field along with practical information on how to gain access to and work with complex institutions that may not welcome change. The author also suggests the most effective research methodology for long-term care settings, and how to implement and disseminate successful research.
