ALL STAFF WORKING IN CAMDEN ACROSS HEALTH, SOCIAL CARE AND VOLUNTARY ORGANISATIONS ARE INVITED TO ATTEND.
Frailty defines the group of older people who are at highest risk of adverse outcomes such as falls, disability, admission to hospital, or the need for long-term care. People with moderate to severe frailty are often well known to local health and social care professionals.
Identifiying people with frailty and improving their care and support are therefore priorities for the health and care system.
What we will cover
- Frailty as a clinical concept
- The limitations of single professions providing care for a frail person
- The principles of interprofessional working and what a functioning multi-disciplinary team can bring
- How these can be combined with the concept of patient-centred care
Why should you attend?
This exciting and fully facilitated inter-professional learning event will be an opportunity to explore the approaches taken by different professionals to the challenges of Frailty, and what skills we all need in order to support people within our profession and colleagues from other professions.
