Welcome

Thank you for agreeing to take part in our research study. As you are aware the research is being carried out by the University of the West of Scotland,  The Health and Social Care ALLIANCE ( the ALLIANCE) and NHS Ayrshire and Arran. It is funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing.

The study aims to increase your skills in managing frailty in the community. We plan to create, deliver and evaluate a person-centred intervention with two components: a coaching programme and an educational intervention on effective and personalised care and support for people living with frailty in the community.

Throughout the programme you will be able to provide feedback based on your experience of this training and how it is helping you to support other members of your team in managing frail older people. Your views may help other people affected by frailty in the future by helping the research team to understand what are the key issues in the management of  frailty in the community so that we can help others to identify the best ways to address them.

This Blog is going to act as your teaching resource and will be here for you throughout the study. The plan is to place all the teaching resources used in the sessions on this site and also to post additional information and useful materials we find while the project is running. Note that anything that you see on this site that is BLUE is a link to a useful resource.
