If our research is to support social care to do things differently and better, then our findings need to be translated into actions
Our strategy for impact focuses on developing strong partnerships and fostering relationships with networks of stakeholders throughout the study in order to exchange ideas and facilitate shared learning to increase potential for influence and impact.
We have developed partnerships with carer/public representatives and other adult social care stakeholders and are working with them to design and choose the focus of the study and develop recommendations. These relationships are likely to endure beyond the project to inform future research.
During the study we are building further relationships with a wider group of stakeholders, including more service users and carers. Stakeholders are shaping the direction of the research, and helping synthesise the findings and identify ways to communicate them to and discuss with different stakeholder groups.
As far as possible, evidence will be made available during the course of the study.
