WP5 - Analysis and guidelines development

WP5 - Analysis and guidelines development


WP5 will be built upon and complete the results of WP4, through the analytical characterization of the EIP AHA commitments and the projections of their impact at population-level. WP5 will be inspired by the principles of the Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER)1 with the final objective of assisting EIP AHA partners in a customized process aimed at scalability.


The specific objectives of this WP are:

  1. To select a set of indicators to be used in the analytical characterization and comparison of interventions within EIP AHA in the areas of i) screening and primary prevention of pre-frailty/frailty; and ii) secondary prevention/management of frailty.
  2. To analyse EIP AHA realities upon pre-defined indicators, and explore the relationships between indicators, and between them and the organizational, economic, social context in order to identify possible targets for optimisation strategies.
  3. To use the outcomes of 1-2 to determine the reality of findings and structures of current Good Practices within the EIP AHA portfolio, with a survey to contributors to elicit details such as definitions and measures of frailty used, barriers and bottlenecks, enabling conditions, successful outcomes and evaluation criteria and measures used.
  4. To model predictions of resource consumption and health and social care costs.
  5. To develop guidelines as services to aid implementation, optimization and customized scalability.
