Useful information produced by the Older People with Frailty Programme, or infromation which we beleive will be useful in relation to frailty appears below.
  • The ‘Silver Book’ aims to present an overview of many of the most pressing and clinical and social problems met by older people when they present in an emergency
  • The British Geriatrics Society Fit for Frailty Part 2 guidance document, published in January 2015, follows on from the Fit for Frailty Part 1 document.  It provides advice and guidance on the development, commissioning and management of services for people living with frailty in community settings. It is aimed at GPs, geriatricians, Health Service managers, Social Service managers and Commissioners of Services
  • The recently released National Hip Fracture Database Annual Report 2015 considers the care of patients with hip fracture, but is also has much wider implications. Hip fracture is an ideal marker condition with which to examine and challenge the quality and outcome of the care offered to frail and older patients by the modern NHS
  • The NHS Benchmarking Network run a project looking at the care of older people in acute settings - exploring the pathway that people take through the acute hospital, beginning in A&E and assessment units, and moving through to inpatient wards and supported discharge teams. The NHS Benchmarking Network have produced a case study about their work with EMAHSN in this area
We have a selection of evidence reviews and summary reports on the care of older people living with frailty. They can be downloaded from our resource hub.
