New Frailty e-learning programme aims to ensure there is equity in the understanding and knowledge of frailty across the workforce

A leadership collaborative consisting of frailty specialists, Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), the London Clinical Network for Frailty, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Wessex Academic Health Science Network have developed a new elearning programme looking at frailty as a complex multi-system, long term condition.

This exciting and much needed programme promotes a universal language in frailty identification that will support health and social care staff, as well as members of the public, to meet the needs of individuals living with varying degrees of frailty, to deliver improved health outcomes.

This elearning programme aligns with the national and regional Ageing Well strategies for improvement. It explores the multi-system complexity of frailty via the Geriatric 5Ms. This simple framework which comprises Mind, Mobility, Medications, Multi-complexity and Matters most encompasses all the elements which are important when considering holistic care for those living with frailty.

The programme is split into three tiers, aligned to the learning needs of different groups. This ranges from the general public, reception staff and porters to clinicians working in acute frailty services.

The programme is compliant with Frailty, A framework of core capabilities (2018) and has been funded by HEE’s Urgent and Emergency Care Workforce Collaborative for London.
