The prevention of new disabilities is a priority for older people because it allows them to maintain their independence. It has been suggested that multifactorial interventions combining different aspects of care may postpone new disabilities, support independent living, and curtail health and social costs by reducing hospitalisations and nursing home admissions. The main aim of Jacqueline Suijker’s research is to develop an instrument to identify older persons at increased risk of functional decline and a multifactorial intervention for the most prevalent geriatric conditions based on all available evidence in primary care. She also evaluates the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of nurse-led multifactorial care.
