The Local Government Association in England has recently organised an event focused on promoting embedding interventions to support the well-being of LTC workers. In this event, three speakers highlighted the importance of multi-agency working, operationalising well-being in daily working activities and evidence on the drivers and support mechanisms specific to the LTC workforce.
Professor Shereen Hussein was an invited speaker and presented findings from the Care Workers Related Quality of Life (CWRQoL) study aimed to develop a way of measuring the impact of care work on care workers’ quality of life (‘care work-related quality of life’). The National Institute for Health Research funded the study and was led by Professor Hussein. The main findings of this study are presented in this article.
After discussing the dimensions and structure of care workers’ well-being, Professor Hussein presented evidence on existing mechanisms to support the workforce. These provide translatable knowledge for emerging LTC markets in the Middle East and North Africa Region.SH-LGA-Presentation
