Hospital-Wide Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (HoW-CGA)

The Nuffield Trust, in collaboration with clinical investigators at the Universities of Leicester, Southampton and Newcastle, is part of a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)-funded project to research acute hospital care for frail older people. The aim of the work is to inform NHS managers, clinicians, patients and the public about how best to organise hospital services for frail older people.

As part of this project, we have designed a tool for use by local providers (NHS acute trusts) and commissioners (local authorities) of care for older people (aged 75 years and older) in England as well as a series of practical guides on achieving hospital-wide comprehensive geriatric assessment.
