This Annotated Bibliography is one output from a review of the available research evidence to support improved care in residential care homes as the needs of older people intensify. The review identified extremely little published evidence on residential care homes; the research base is almost exclusively related to provision of care in nursing homes.

It takes its place as part of a number of initiatives considering the nursing responses to the new health policy agenda in Scotland.
