Abstract

There is a need for research into effective approaches to promote health and wellbeing for older people in primary care, particularly using technologies. These interventions may, however, generate inequalities in access. We aimed to assess the implementation in UK primary care of the multidimensional risk appraisal in older people (MRAO). The objectives were to (1) assess feasibility and costs of embedding the MRAO system; (2) identify sociodemographic characteristics of older people who choose to take part in a health promotion intervention; (3) identify factors helping or hindering older people and professionals from using recommendations to promote health and wellbeing; and (4) assess the utility of the MRAO to promote working across health, local government, and voluntary sectors.
