Also available to watch ON DEMAND! In this half-day event on ‘Older people and frailty’, we will explore key concepts and skills which are crucial in supporting our older patients - both at home and in nursing home settings.

Using a combination of teaching strategies, live interactive cases, polls and discussion we will explore:

  • What is normal ageing…and what isn’t?
  • The terrible triplets: frailty, multimorbidity and polypharmacy
  • How to do a really good medication review and feel good about deprescribing!
  • The 3D’s of deterioration: delirium, depression and dementia
  • Common primary care problems: falls, recurrent infections and requests for antibiotics.

And we will tie all this together with real-life case scenarios and tools you can use once you are back at the surgery, on home visits or out in nursing homes the next day.

The course will be available live on the date and on demand for 12 months after the date of purchase.

Please note that no printed handbook or access to GPCPD will be provided with this course. All the resources required to attend will be downloadable from the webinar platform.
