Ageing Studies

Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment Case Study and Delphi – Version 1 (1603217)

The aim of this research is to assess how CGA is understood from the perspective of healthcare professionals, patients, caregivers and the health services, in both acute hospital and hospital at home settings. In the case studies we will interview and observe patients, carers and healthcare professional. In the focus group prior to the Delphi exercise, we will elicit the views of frail older patients and caregivers on their experiences of the hospital (and hospital at home) environment. We will aim to identify expert consensus on CGA in an online Delphi exercise of healthcare professionals who are experts in providing healthcare to frail older people in hospital and hospital at home settings.
