  1. Geriatric care in the United Kingdom : aligning services to needs. Commentary.

    Article - En anglais

    Health care tends to focus on acute problems at the expense of managing and preventing exacerbations of chronic illness.

    Long term care of elderly people has been shifted from hospital to residential homes.

    A partnership is proposed including general practitioners, geriatricians, and social support staff for care of frail elderly people.

    Partnership would be encouraged to and responsible for maintaining and improving the health of frail people rather than fire fight acute illness.

    Planned, supported and funded care by general practitioners may improve the health of care home residents and avoid episodes of expensive care.
