I am delighted to host this blog from Gerry Nosowska, founder and Director of Effective Practice, which supported the Social Work with Older People research project. For too long, this vital area of practice has been largely unseen. Hopefully, as we build a stronger evidence base, more social workers will be deployed to work with older people and their carers.
Gerry is the founder and Director of Effective Practice www.effective-practice.com, which supported the Social Work with Older People research project.
The project was led by Birmingham University with Bristol University. It was funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research School for Social Care Research. Gerry is an independent social worker, who works in practice improvement.
