Abstract

Introduction: Care homes provide nursing and social care for older people who can no longer live independently at home. In the UK, there is no consistent approach to how information about residents’ medical history, care needs, and preferences are collected and shared. This limits opportunities to understand the care home population, have a systematic approach to assessment and documentation of care, identify care home residents at risk of deterioration, and review care. Countries with standardised approaches to residents’ assessment, care planning and review (e.g. Minimum Data Sets (MDS)) use the data to understand the care home population, guide resource allocation, monitor services delivery and for research. The aim of this realist review is to develop a theory-driven understanding of how care homes staff implement and use MDS to plan and deliver care of individual residents.

Methods and analysis: A realist review will be conducted in three research stages.

Stage two will test and refine these theories through further iterative searches of the evidence from the literature to establish how effective uptake of an MDS can be achieved.

Review registration number: This review protocol is registered on the International Prospective Register of Systematic Reviews (PROSPERO) - CRD42020171323.
