Our ambition is to help improve well-being by applying evidence-based policy, practice and service models that have a focus on prevention and early intervention. We know this is ambitious and we will need to prioritise our activities, which are set out in our proposals for a five-year research and development plan.
The proposals cover five areas;
- involving the public in social care research and development
- research priorities
- use of existing and routinely collected data
- developing the workforce and organisations
- making research results available.
The plan also sets out 16 recommendations to help create and enhance the research and development of social care in Wales.
