This project, supported by the Health Foundation and led by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on behalf of British Geriatrics Society, focuses on a series of measurable harms posing a risk to older patients, including confusion, falls, and adverse drug reactions.

It aims to implement an evidence-based checklist to improve communication, team working, and prompt reliable care, and to test its effective implementation, with a view to improving quality of care for frail older people who are admitted to hospital with a medical emergency.

The project is running from early 2014 to mid 2016.
