In early 2014, CFHS worked with Evaluation Support Scotland to commission a short evidence review of the literature on the ways in which the third sector supports older people to eat well. This has now been published as part of the ESS ‘Stitch in Time’ programme.
The starting point for the review was the nested outcome model developed by CFHS and colleagues in NHS Health Scotland – older people eat well. This model can be found as an appendix to the publication and will soon be publicly available on the Joint Improvement team website. Examples of evidence that contributed to the different stages in this model were identified, linked and collected into, what it is hoped, will be a useful tool for groups and organisations wanting to cite the evidence for different areas of their work.
