An estimated 400,000 people aged over 65 live in care homes. They are a population with complex needs, receiving care of variable standards, often influenced by ability to pay. Yet very little is known about their health needs and how best to organise health and social care services to promote equitable outcomes in long term care. A seminar held in September 2013 brought together researchers and stakeholders to map the research agenda and identify priorities A multi-disciplinary research team is now planning a programme of work to fill some of these important gaps in research.
