New publication co-authored by Professor Heather Wharrad


The final report for the NIHR-funded CHAT feasibility study co-authored by DICE's Professor Heather Wharrad has just been published. As part of the study a two day training programme called 'Older People's Shoes' (OPS) was developed to allow healthcare assistants to share good practice when caring for older people. The introduction of a care certificate for healthcare assistants has increased the need for high quality training such as OPS.
