An ongoing study by Lyndon H. is to conduct a cluster randomised, controlled feasibility study of a nurse-led Holistic Assessment and care Planning in Partnership Intervention (HAPPI) and to determine feasibility of delivering the intervention in primary care to older people with frailty, including testing potential trial methods to inform the design of a definitive randomised controlled trial (RCT).


The HAPPI intervention was developed by the researcher in the first phase of this study. It is an individualised assessment and care planning process including development of person-centred goals supported by planning and relevant referrals. It will be carried out at the participant’s home. If it shows positive outcomes, it will provide quality care and better experience.
