A new report from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) shows how clinical research is working to address the challenges faced by people working and living in care homes.

Advancing Care – Research with Care Homes, a themed review of NIHR-funded studies, looks at an area of research that has historically received less attention than hospital treatment, but which affects some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
