Why and how this toolkit came about


Before I formally took over the geriatric care lead in a busy 5 doctor GP practice, visits to the nursing homes followed a pattern familiar to most Irish GP's and, I am sure, GP's in many other settings also.


I would rush in and out of the nursing home for a total of 30 to 40 minutes actual on-site clinical time, which with travel time would pretty much take up my entire lunch hour, or take a few extra hours out of my evening.

Very little time would be available to ponder the intricacies of poly-pharmacy and co-morbidity, and virtually no time at all to sit and chat , formally assess mental status, diet, interaction with other residents, etc.
