Ireland’s first National Nursing Home Experience Survey will be conducted later this year.
The National Nursing Home Experience Survey will be the first national survey asking nursing home residents about their lived experiences of nursing home care in Ireland. The findings of this national survey will drive improvements in nursing home care provision, acknowledging what is working well and also identifying areas where improvements are needed. The findings will also be used to inform national policies, regulatory programmes and standards.
This survey is currently under development, with a view to surveying nursing home residents in 2022.
The National Care Experience Programme is a joint initiative from the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), the Health Service Executive (HSE) and the Department of Health.
