Are you interested in identifying research priorities for older people living with frailty?
Our Older People with Frailty team in Leeds and Bradford are undertaking a research prioritisation exercise to identify what is important to older people living with frailty who are living in the community. The aim of this work is to develop an intervention that aligns with one of their top priority areas. To date, a literature review has been undertaken to identify existing priorities for older people, and these priorities have been translated into survey format.
Three surveys have been distributed: one to older people, one to those who support or care for an older person, and one to health and social care professionals who work with older people. The older people’s survey is complete, but the surveys for carers and HSCPs are still open. We invite you to complete one or both surveys if you a) care for / support an older person, or b) work with older people in the community.
a) The carers’ survey can be found here: https://leeds.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/research-priorities-survey-carers
b) The health and social care professionals’ survey can be found here: https://leeds.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/research-priorities-hscps
The surveys close at the end of January; however, we will also be inviting carers and professionals to contribute to later intervention development work.
If you have questions about the surveys, or would like to get involved at a later date, please contact: Liz Graham, Senior Research Fellow, Academic Unit for Ageing and Stroke Research, University of Leeds / Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
