SUSTAIN Newsletter N. 3 | February 2017

News from the sites: Sandgate Road Surgery

For the third release of the SUSTAIN newsletter, we will focus on the Kent’s based SUSTAIN site Sandgate Road Surgery ‘Over 75 Service’. Developed in the recent years, this initiative’s purpose is to identify frail, older people and provide them with person-centred and integrated care in order to improve their health and wellbeing while maintaining their independence for as long as possible.

The initiative introduces a single assessment tool - the Dalhousie Frailty Screening tool - for the provision of a wide range of health and social care services, including befriending or regular telephone contact, anticipatory care planning and medication reviews, without forgetting carers’ needs assessment and support. Discover more about the Over 75 Service, its potential and opportunities, by clicking here.

SUSTAIN goes live: video-interviews

The project consortium has produced a series of video-interviews aimed at sharing the early experience of professionals directly involved in the implementation of the project within the SUSTAIN sites. The first round of videos focuses on feedbacks from four professionals from both the healthcare and the social services of the County of Osona, one of the two sites working in direct connection with AQuAS, the Catalunya-based partner of the project.

SUSTAIN at the GSA Annual Scientific Meeting 2016

Last November, a Dutch delegation of the SUSTAIN consortium presented the SUSTAIN project at the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Gerontological Society of America. SUSTAIN Project Manager Simone de Bruin (RIVM), Manon Lette (VUmc) and Annerieke Stoop (RIVM/VUmc) exchanged the overall design of SUSTAIN and the different experiences so far among local stakeholders from the sites. Among the addressed issues, the core domains of SUSTAIN and how they could be potentially conflicting, for example in terms of people's preferences and balance between prevention and safety.
