The collaborative objectives are to:

  • improve the processes for identifying frailty
  • strengthen links between secondary, primary and social care to ensure all care options are considered
  • improve the processes for delivering early effective comprehensive geriatric assessment
  • improve the coordinated response to frailty
  • develop improvement capacity and capability in NHS boards using recognised quality improvement (QI) methodology, and
  • prototype a driver diagram, change package and related resources to support testing of interventions, measure improvement and establish mechanisms for embedding new approaches into daily practice
