The letters 'implement' spelled out in wooden tiles

Today, on International Older Persons’ Day, three national projects were launched officially as part of the National Healthy Ageing, Dementia and Frailty Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). One of the three is FinchImp – an implementation (that’s the Imp) study of a successful project that aims to help prevent falls in care homes.

Developed by Prof Pip Logan and colleagues from the University of Nottingham, the Unit is pleased to be involved in taking the study findings further into mainstream care practice in a South London borough. The launch event was chaired by Prof Alison Richardson of the University of Southampton and introduced by Prof Helen Roberts who is leading the National ARC Priority on Healthy Ageing, Dementia and Frailty. Dr Cat Forward will be the key Unit researcher on this study, with Prof Jill Manthorpe also on the team.
