Complex health and care needs in older people

  Created on Tuesday, 06 Feb 2018. Posted in Priorities

The NIHR has an on-going Highlight Notice is ‘Complex Health and Care Needs in Older People’.

The NIHR welcomes all relevant applications, and particularly those addressing the key themes identified at a stakeholder workshop:

  • Frailty,
  • Transitions in care, service delivery and models of care,
  • Medicines management/polypharmacy,
  • Promoting healthy ageing/preventing ill health,
  • Patient-centred decision making.

Researchers interested in this area should watch this useful video from Professors Chris Whitty, Bruce Guthrie and Tom Walley on the priorities that need to be addressed.
