Free webinar: Launch of the 2023 Frailty Care Guides

Aged residential care
31 August 2023
12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM

This free webinar supports the launch of the 2023 edition of Frailty care guides | Ngā aratohu maimoa hauwarea (FCGs). More details follow.

Frailty is a recognised clinical syndrome that requires specialised assessment and interventions, particularly for people who are ageing and those with multiple co-morbidities.

We are now publishing the 2023 edition of the FCGs, the development of which has been led by Julie Daltrey and Patumahoe Leaf-Wright on behalf of Te Tāhū Hauora Health Quality & Safety Commission.  

The new edition of the FCGs includes mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) and cultural concepts relevant to caring for kaumātua (Māori elder/s). It also features evidence updates.

While the guides have a specific focus on aged residential care, they can be applied to other care settings for individuals living with frailty.

Join us for a webinar where we will launch the updated guides. This will be a valuable opportunity for the health workforce to learn how the FCGs can improve outcomes for residents in your facility.

During the webinar, you will hear about: 

  • the whakapapa (history/genealogy) of the guides and the 2023 review
  • the new guides that have been added
  • additions that have been made to the guides, including the incorporation mātauranga Māori and cultural concepts
  • ways to access the guides and the formats available.
