Screening for malnutrition by community nurses: Barriers and facilitators

The project aims to understand community nurses' views about barriers and facilitators to undertaking nutritional screening using a qualitative approach. 

Improving Fundamental Care on Hospital Wards

This is a feasibility study for an intervention aiming to make fundamental care in acute hospitals more person-centred. It pairs the Creating Learning Environments for Compassionate Care (CLECC) intervention with an adapted, co-produced version of the ‘TellUs’ card to support personalisation of fundamental care in hospital.
