Improving clinical services in the areas of musculoskeletal (MSK), falls, fractures and frailty.

A new guide compiled by the Oxford Academic Health Science Network showcases the extensive range of programmes being delivered by AHSNs to improve clinical services in the areas of musculoskeletal (MSK), falls, fractures and frailty – all key priorities for the NHS

Across England’s 15 AHSNs there is a wealth of experience and practical skills in working with NHS organisations to improve services in these clinical pathways. Evaluations have shown that they have led to improved patient outcomes and better use of resources.

The new guide, compiled by Alison Gowdy, Clinical Innovation Adoption Manager at Oxford AHSN, with input from all AHSNs, provides a valuable overview of these projects.

It is hoped the guide will help shape discussions with Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs), commissioners and providers regarding future work to improve services and patient outcomes in these areas, while enabling others to share in learning to help implement and/or build on an existing, proven concept.
