Chapter 26 discusses the general lack of research and development of medical practice and health service support to care homes, which means that this chapter relies largely on common sense, pragmatism and illustrative cases rather than strongly rooted evidence. A variety of issues are outlined with the purpose to both illustrate problems and also opportunities for progressive practice.
