Research and Development


To fully realise the Frailty ICARE Toolkit and measure its wider impact across various aspects, including and beyond the measures listed here, we have started to collaborate with our local universities and NHS research and evidence teams to help with evidence synthesis and to explore the evaluation and research potential for the future.  As part of this work we are working closely with the regional NIHR ARC (Applied Research Collaboration) NENC team.
