We welcome proposals for clinical and applied health research into the evaluation of healthcare interventions, health services,social care or public health measures for older people with complex health and care needs.
The NIHR welcomes all relevant applications, and particularly those addressing the key themes identified at the stakeholder workshop:
- Transitions in care, service delivery and models of care,
- Medicines management/polypharmacy,
- Promoting healthy ageing/preventing ill health,
- Patient-centred decision making.

In November 2016, we held a workshop to identify tractable research topics and issues for future NIHR research, and to explore the context and challenges for research older people with complex health needs.
