Quality in Primary Health Care Seminar Series

Implementing the ‘Frailty Portal’ in Community Practice: Evaluating feasibility, effects and expansion needs

Primary care providers regularly encounter frail persons in their daily clinical work.  However, routine identification and measurement of frailty is not part of their standard practice and there is a general lack of awareness and consistency in their approach to frailty.  This seminar will present the web-based “Frailty Portal” as a means of providing care to frail patients.

A collaborative effort within the Central Zone of the Nova Scotia Health Authority led to the development of the web-based “Frailty Portal” to aid in the identification, screening and care planning for frail patients in community primary care practice.  On behalf of the Frailty Portal team, Beverley Lawson, Dr. Grace Warner and Dr. Fred Burge will present key findings from an implementation feasibility study.  Impact and identification of core elements for successful scaling will also be presented.

Presented by Beverley Lawson, Dr. Grace Warner & Dr. Fred Burge on behalf of the Primary Health Care Frailty Portal Team
