The challenge of aging and frailty – a webinar
Published: 20 February, 2017
Multi morbidity and frailty: the biggest challenge for commissioners, clinicians and patients?
Around one in four of people in England have two or more long-term conditions, often known as ‘multi morbidity’, rising to two-thirds of those aged over 65 years-old. Frailty is the most problematic expression of ageing with around one million people in England living with frailty. Yet, care is often built around individual conditions leading to poorer quality of life, fragmented care and unwarranted treatment burdens.
All are invited to join a webinar presented by Wessex AHSN which explores how to address the impact on quality of life, mortality and greater use of unplanned care.
Speakers include Prof Bruce Guthrie (Head of Population Health Sciences Division, University of Dundee), Prof Martin Vernon (National Clinical Director for Older People, NHS England), and Sue Denmark (person with lived experience).
The webinar will be held on Friday 24 February 2017, 12pm-1pm.
