PROP: Practitioner Research: Older People's Support

PROP (Practitioner Research: Older People’s Support) funded by the IRISS and NHS is a series of practitioner reports on the care of older adults.  The series has published 5 reports so far, that highlight different initiatives translated into practice at hospitals and long-term care facilities.  The reports look at the logistics of the programs, how they were transitioned into practice and further research considerations.   
The 5 report’s that have been published so far are:
·         Carer’s Assessment and outcomes focused approaches to working with carers
·         Analysis and review of staff training regarding care for older people
·         Perspectives on personal outcomes of early stage support for people with dementia and their carers
·         Assessment of Home Pathway: the experience of service users, carers and staff in South Glasgow during the early stages of implementation
·         Is music the best medicine? Using prescribed music to enhance quality of life for people with dementia and their carer
