1)      The Frailty Identification video for Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust (TSDFT) is now complete and available via this link:




2)      Ottawa Clinical Frailty Scale (CFS) Training module is on The Hive (TSDFT’s training website)




Whilst quite ward focussed, staff across the Trust have found benefit from this training package both ward based and community staff.


3)      The Mrs Andrews story is also part of the  training package which reflects how frailty identification could benefit patient care and avoid hospital admissions




4)      Staff can also access the CFS Quick Reference guide (which is briefly displayed on the  TSDFT video) and Top Ten Tips for CFS which I have attached above.


The breadth of information will help staff in primary care improve their understanding of frailty from their existing knowledge base.
