University of Birmingham – Organisational change in social care Open
SCIE converted the University of Birmingham’s research on managing change into an accessible multimedia resource. The purpose of this resource is to support managers working in adult social care to be more knowledgeable about, and confident in the application of different approaches to managing change.
NIHR School for Social Care Research: Carer-related research and knowledge – digital resource Open
The NIHR School for Social Care Research commissioned SCIE and the Open University to review existing evidence about carers’ lives and caring issues, and to develop a new digital resource to provide access to this knowledge. The Open University is carrying out the review of national and international evidence. SCIE is developing a framework for structuring that evidence, and an online tool to ensure policy makers and practitioners can more easily access the information from one place.
The findings will be widely disseminated through relevant carer and policy networks and be used to inform the development of the digital resource on the SCIE website due for launch in 2018.
Note: The term carer refers to unpaid family members or friends who support people who need care and support.
Many clients commission both our digital production services together with our communications services to ensure their resource reach the right audiences.
