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.

Actions 2022:

  • Testing out the Frailty Evaluation Toolkit
  • Completing the iCGA study
  • Concluding the ARC EnCOP study looking at some of the iCARE metrics
  • Explore funding options for:
  • Formal implementation evaluation of EnCO
  • Phase two of the housing study that suggested renal function was a maker for frailty
  • Hydration project submission to national team for assessment. It involves improving hydration care
