This Targeted Call for Research (TCR) aims to encourage research that addresses how frail persons can be supported to avoid hospitalisations, receive optimal care when admitted, and achieve the best health recovery outcomes, through integrated and coordinated in- and post-hospital interventions.

This TCR was prioritised by the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council (AHMAC) Working Committee. A TCR is a one-time solicitation for grant applications to address a specific health issue. 

The Council of Australian Governments agreed that AHMAC work with the NHMRC to identify areas of priority research that could be funded, possibly jointly with States and Territories, through the TCR programme.
