Improving outcomes for older people in hospital requires good communication, assessment and person-centered practice.
These topics provide information and recommend actions that we and our organisations can take to improve care for older patients.
Screening and assessment
Screening and assessment on admission and during a hospital stay can help clinicians identify and respond to actual or potential risks to their patients.
Person centred practice
Person-centred practice puts the person at the centre of everything we do. It recognises that each patient is a unique and complex person and respects their needs.
