Description:

Following on from an initial project to develop e-learning titled: An introduction to Frailty aimed at all staff that come into contact with patients, we have now developed a further e-learning platform to enable senior staff to treat people living with frailty. This project has been aimed at senior clinical staff including doctors, nurses and AHPs who do not specialise in older people’s healthcare. The purpose is to ensure a consistent approach to managing the healthcare needs of people living with frailty wherever their clinical setting.

Outcome:

The project is ready to launch but we are now applying for a grant to evaluate the project in terms of outcomes and potential improvements to patient care. Because this project has been developed for cross professional use it will have benefits for community, acute and primary care.
