  • Making personalised short breaks meaningful report

    Created: 09/08/2021

    ‘Making personalised short breaks meaningful: a future research agenda to connect academia, policy and practice' is a research paper published recently in the international journal Quality in Ageing and Older Adults, June 2021. It is authored by Diane Seddon, Emma Miller, Louise Prendergast, Don Williamson and Joyce Elizabeth Cavaye and examines the growing policy impetus to promote carer well-being through the provision of personalised short breaks, and contrasts this with the significant evidence gaps in our understanding of what makes for a successful personalised short break. The paper identifies the key evidence gaps and considers how these could be addressed.
