Using comprehensive geriatric assessment for quality improvements in healthcare of older people in UK care homes: protocol for realist review within Proactive Healthcare of Older People in Care Homes (PEACH) study | BMJ Open

Care home residents are relatively high users of healthcare resources
and may have complex needs. Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) may
benefit care home residents and improve efficiency of care delivery.
This is an approach to care in which there is a thorough
multidisciplinary assessment (physical and mental health, functioning
and physical and social environments) and a care plan based on this
assessment, usually delivered by a multidisciplinary team. The CGA
process is known to improve outcomes for community-dwelling older people
and those in receipt of hospital care, but less is known about its
efficacy in care home residents.
