Description:

A project spanning primary and community services to give a model for the ongoing case-finding for frail patients from various sources. It also shows a way to approach to care planning to enable primary and community services to enter data on the same template – the outputs of which can be viewed by any healthcare professionals with access to the summary care record. It gives options for enhancing MDT processes with a consistent approach and gives access to frailty e-learning module and supporting leaflets.

Outcome:

The project was summarised in a formal report which can be used to apply any or all of the different facets to care. It is a toolkit which is available in paper or electronic format and there is currently work to disseminate it from Weymouth & Portland where it was trialled, to further across Dorset.
