Health care provision for older people in long term care: issues of access, regulation and best practice” was the title of a presentation that Professor Claire Goodman gave at The Indo-UK 'Ageing' Workshop held in Mumbai, India.

Claire Goodman, Professor of Health Care Research at the University of Hertfordshire’s Centre for Research in Primary and Community Care (CRIPACC), was invited by the British Deputy High Commission in India to share her research at the workshop on ageing and long term care.

Her research focuses on how the National Health Service works with social care and independent third sector providers to support older people. She is currently leading nationally-funded studies on end of life care for older people with dementia living in long term care and on effective health care delivery to older people in care homes.

Professor Goodman is a founder member of the Enabling Research in Care Homes (ENRICH) DeNDRoN initiative that arose in response to the Ministerial Advisory Group on Dementia Research. This network of nearly 600 research-ready care homes registered to the ENRICH programme has so far provided approximately 13,000 residents access to research. It is supported by an online resource that provides researchers, care home staff, residents and family members with information about how to participate in and review research in care homes.

The Indo-UK ‘Ageing’ Workshop was set up to explore and strengthen Indo-UK collaborative partnerships between academia, experts, governmental and non-governmental departments in the area of ‘Ageing’.
