Author: Janet Askham
Findings
The NSFOP set out eight key standards focused on: rooting out age discrimination person-centred care intermediate care general hospital care stroke falls mental health and health promotion. The report identifies six key principles which underpin these standards. Five of these are used as the focus for summarising the findings from the variety of studies. An indication of the headlines for each of these areas is given further detail, together with a broad outline of each study and its key findings can be found in the report, while those who have an interest in a particular study can access the individual report specific to that study.
There should be no discrimination in health and social care services.

Older people with health and care needs specific to old age should have services from professionals who are trained in the care and treatment of older people .

Older people with health problems should be helped to manage their own conditions, to regain independence and to remain living in the community.

Older people with complex needs should receive integrated and long-term care services
