Professor Andy Clegg presents his research into assessing frailty
7 October 2021
Professor Andy Clegg’s research is helping slow down frailty, enabling people to live healthier for longer and bring greater efficiencies for health and care services.
Part of this is his work at the Leeds Centre for Personalised Medicine and Health, to develop the next generation of the electronic Frailty Index (eFI), a nationally available tool that allows primary care clinicians to measure people’s resilience relating to health and well-being.
In this short presentation by Andy at the Health Service Research UK Conference 2021, he gives an update on his research into caring for older people. Amongst other factors, Andy explains how the impact of mental, as well as physical health conditions are being taken into account when assessing frailty.
