Community of Practice

Our Community of Practice explores the challenges and opportunities of Ageing Well and frailty. We bring together experts, from across the systems, which are willing to learn, share and push the boundaries of knowledge about older people  their lives, wants and care needs.   The Community of Practice is a cross-sector group, exploring care in all aspects of Ageing Well through purposeful conversations, allowing the learning and dissemination of knowledge to spread into local places to aid care delivery and services developments.

Wenger-Trayner E, Wenger-Trayner B. Communities of Practice, a brief introduction. 2015.

Working together, this community will:

  • Develop a strategic voice and vision for ageing well and frailty.
  • Drive transformation in ageing well and  preventing frailty and supporting people, families and communities living with frailty.
  • Collate and curate a body of knowledge around ageing well and frailty, which can be shared across the region and more widely.

They will achieve this by:

  • Sharing and learning from existing knowledge.
  • Identifying knowledge and care gaps, priorities and common challenges .
  • Generating and sharing new knowledge and new ways of working; better tools and processes; and innovative solutions to common challenges.
