This QI activity is linked to the workshop titled Doing What Matters – Keeping Older People Well at Home.
People with frailty have 2 to 3 times the health care utilisation of their non-frail counterparts and experience higher morbidity, mortality as well as lower quality of life.
Frailty can increase functional decline, increase the risk of falls, contribute to longer length of hospital stay and contribute to early entry into RACFs.
Many of the causes of frailty can be managed and, in some cases reversed to create better health outcomes and quality of life. It is therefore important to identify older people who are living with frailty.
