How can we test whether different types of care work or not? With data. the social care sector in the UK has been lacking coherent, linked up data even before the pandemic, but COVID-19 highlighted how much we are missing big data on care homes.

In this episode, I am joined by Prof Adam Gordon from the University of Nottingham. Adam is Professor of the Care of Older People, and has been leading research in care homes for over a decade now, mainly looking at models of healthcare and how to prevent avoidable harm in care homes.
