Invitation to ‘Evidence-based Practice Social Work Research Salon’

Social Development – Seminar      2019/03/26

Our Council has been organizing ‘Evidence-based Practice Social Work Research Salons’ to share the latest social work studies with practitioners in the sector and other relevant stakeholders. Apart from discussing approaches and designs of research on social development or community well-being, we aim to brainstorm implications of the researches to policy advocacy and service development with participants.


The Salvation Army is invited to share in this salon the research design, operation, and application of the result of their research on “Potential Carers” conducted in 2018. “Potential Carers” refers to those who need not take care, but may need to take care of their elderly parents in the future. In the absence of relevant literature, how to operationalize the research subject (potential carers) and some vital concepts (i.e. Willingness of Potential Carers to provide care to Caretakers, and the Level of Preparation of Potential Carers to provide care in the future) became a challenge in this research. Moreover, in order to reach the general “potential carers” outside the service catchment of the organization, the study introduced the support of academics and research institutions to conduct a random sampling telephone survey of the first related topic in Hong Kong. The process was also a challenge for the organization. Furthermore, the speakers will also discuss the insights brought by the research into service development and policy advocacy.
