Ann-Marie Towers, Reader in Social Care and ASCOT programme lead at the Centre for Health Services Studies (CHSS) at the University of Kent, talks about her work with Elizabeth Finn Care Homes supported by the Social Care theme of the Applied Research Collaborative Kent, Surrey & Sussex (ARC KSS). 

Building on the work that the Adult Social Care Outcomes Toolkit (ASCOT) team have previously undertaken with a large care provider in Australia, they will be working to pilot the use of ASCOT in care planning conversations here in the UK. 

This work will also feed in to the DACHA study which is looking to develop and test a Minimum Data Set (MDS) for care homes and is led by NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England (ARC EoE).
