Details and patient eligibility

About

the elderly population (+ 65 years) is increasing. Acute medical conditions often leads to hospital admissions in this age group. However hospital admission is linked to adverse events. like confusion, medication errors or new infections.

the ACCESS project aims to examine alternatives to acute admissions for senior medical patients.

the aims are:

  1. How many patients will be admitted to hospital due to acute medical conditions if cared for by their own General Practitioner (GP) versus a hospital intern specialist ?
  2. how many patients will be admitted to hospital due to acute medical conditions if cared for by acute team in their home versus in specialised care centres ?
