What is Frailty?
The ‘frailty fulcrum’ is an animated model for frailty that has been developed with these opportunities in mind. This model aims to provide a ‘common language’ for frailty that can be shared between individuals, carers and professionals. It offers an interpretation of frailty that is meaningful, relevant and sustainable for people living with the condition, throughout their journeys of care. Source.
Frailty Focus is a campaign commissioned by NHS North Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group and developed in partnership with the North and Mid Hampshire Frailty Steering Group and Scriberia. They have produced an excellent video and supporting website.
What are we doing to support safer care for people living with frailty?
Following a request from the Patient Safety Collaborative Board, a frailty community practice has been convened. If you would like to be involved in our community of practice for frailty please contact Nathalie.
Instead of a meeting in autumn 2018, attendees are encouraged to attend The Facts of Death: Standardising our Approach to Improve End of Life Care through ReSPECT on 17 October. More details and registration information.
