Project Lead: Dr Helen Dearden

This year NOTCH is excited to be launching the 2020 Frailty project.

With an ageing population we are treating an increasing number of elderly patients with chemotherapy.

Frailty is known to be associated with poor chemotherapy tolerance and increased hospital admissions. 

This prospective multi centre project aims to describe the needs of this under-represented  population, collecting data to assess validity and feasibility of using frailty scoring systems ahead of commencing chemotherapy in a NHS population. This will lead to improved patient care and could be practice changing across the UK. 

We would love to have you on-board.

If your centre would like to be involved, please contact us.
