Focus on demand for frailty care in new GIRFT and RCP winter webinar series

Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) and the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) are collaborating on a series of two webinars this winter to focus on the challenge posed by increasing demand for frailty care from an ageing population in England.

The first webinar will take place on Thursday 15th December 2022 (1–2pm), examining how we can improve frailty care in acute general hospitals.

The Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) national report for geriatric medicine (2021) identified that more than 4,000 people are admitted to hospital every day in England as a result of frailty; it is the area of older people’s care where variation is at its highest and where there is most scope for improvement.

This session will share national measures and initiatives which can help alleviate pressures and highlight best practice in the management of frailty in an acute setting.

The second webinar in this GIRFT and RCP frailty series will focus on improving frailty care at the hospital/community interface,  and will be held on 19th January 2023. Register here. Speaker details for this second webinar will follow.
