Frailty and disability in Ireland, North and South

CARDI Involvement

27th November 2014, CARDI

Older people in Northern Ireland are three times more likely to be frail than those in the Republic of Ireland,  a study by researchers at Trinity College Dublin and Queen’s University Belfast has found. The study also found that women and those from lower socio-economic groups in both countries are more likely to be frail.

The findings of the study led by Dr Matthew O’Connell (TCD) and funded by CARDI, are based on analysis of data from the Health Survey Northern Ireland and the first wave of data from The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA).

It draws on official government data to show that 29 per cent of people in England are classed as physically inactive.

Focus On...Influenza

CARDI Involvement

11th November 2014, CARDI

Influenza is the leading cause of death from infectious disease among older people. This is largely due to declining immune competence with age and the prevalence of chronic conditions among older adults. Influenza is also a significant cause of death and hospitalisation in residential care settings (Health Service Executive / Health Protection Surveillance Centre, 2014). In the 2013/14, 34 people in the Republic of Ireland (ROI) (Health Protection Surveillance Centre, 2014) and 15 in Northern Ireland (NI) (Public Health Agency, 2014) died as a direct result of influenza.
