Complex health and care needs in older people

The NIHR has an on-going Highlight Notice is ‘Complex Health and Care Needs in Older People’.

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 a stakeholder workshop:

  • Frailty,
  • Transitions in care, service delivery and models of care,
  • Medicines management/polypharmacy,
  • Promoting healthy ageing/preventing ill health,
  • Patient-centred decision making.

For more information, including opening dates for different programmes, please see the highlight notice.  It is anticipated that this highlight notice will be repeated after the initial call close dates.

For examples of funded projects please see the Journals Library and the Dissemination Centre website.  If you are interested in funded research in a specific programme please see the relevant programme page.

See information about the previous themed call in this area.
