Abstract

Background: Work-related quality (WRQoL) of life has become an important concept internationally across different professions including adult social care and is one of the factors associated with higher retention. More importantly, in adult social care, WRQoL is linked to the

and individuals working in those contexts as participants groups.

Results: In total, we included 61 publications. There is an absence of agreement on a definition of WRQoL. Very few studies provided an explicit definition of WRQoL and of those even fewer linked those definitions to specific theoretical models. Based on a thematic analysis of

development of any interventions and recommendations to the sector and policymakers on how to improve WRQoL among those working in adult social care remains challenging.
