Title: Rehabilitation for Outdoor Activities and Mobility in Care Homes: The ROAM Study
Date: Thursday, 13 April 2017
Time: 11.30am – 12.30pm
Venue: Room A08, Institute of Mental Health, Triumph Road
Abstract: Care home residents should be supported to participate in meaningful activities in their preferred places, including outdoor spaces. Although outdoor engagement in greenspace is believed to be beneficial, the majority of residents stay indoors. Using a realist approach, this study is investigating what helps and gets in the way of residents’ garden use. Amanda will present an overview of the study and share some preliminary findings.

The IMH will be hosting its Annual Research Day to highlight the work of the Institute’s doctoral candidates, Managed Innovation Networks (MINs), and all early-career researchers (including research assistants, research fellows, and research-active clinicians and service users).
We hope that as many PhD candidates as possible will present their work. This Research Day focuses intentionally on those at the beginning of their academic careers, and thus represents a welcoming and career-developing forum for researchers
