Urban Health Centre 2.0: Integrated health and social care pathways, early detection of frailty, management of polypharmacy and prevention of falls for active and healthy ageing in European cities

Urban Health Centres 2.0 (UHC2.0) promote innovative integrated health and social care pathways, early detection of frailty, management of polypharmacy and prevention of falls for active and healthy ageing in European cities. The general objective is to develop, implement, and evaluate the UHC2.0 in 5 varied European cities that will act as pilot site, in order to produce and disseminate a transferable and easily implementable model for the innovative UHC2.0. 

The project will result in a transferable and easily implementable model for UHC2.0 for integrated health and social care pathways, early detection of frailty, management of polypharmacy and prevention of falls for active and healthy ageing in European cities. A tool box with instruments and protocols and a concise policy document will be produced that contributes to the priorities of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA).

The conference will present the results of the project. More information is available here
