1. Targeted Call for Research into Frailty in Hospital Care: Complex Health Needs


This Targeted Call for Research (TCR) aims to encourage research that addresses how frail persons can be supported to avoid hospitalisations, receive optimal care when admitted, and achieve the best health recovery outcomes, through integrated and coordinated in- and post-hospital interventions.

Minimum data requirements in RGMS: 16 January 2019
