The electronic Frailty Index workshop (eFI)

Date – 22nd September 2015, 2:00 – 4:00pm.

Location – St Georges Centre, Leeds City Centre.

The electronic Frailty Index (eFI) uses existing electronic health record data to identify and severity grade frailty.

The aims of the workshop:

  • To give an in depth understanding of the frailty index, covering the development, its implementation, and its potential value within local areas, and how it differs from other risk tools / methods of identifying frailty.

Potential impact of the eFI:

  • The frailty index could be used for early identification of older people with frailty who could benefit from access to interventions and support programs such as befriending, social prescribing, and physical activity.
  • The workshop will be of benefit to Public Health, Social Care, CCG and General Practice.

This workshop is working with the NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber Primary care based management of frailty in older people Theme, more information about their project on developing the efi can be found here
