The work in the Ageing, Sarcopenia and Multimorbidity theme (ASM) of the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre is designed to address the research gap in the inclusion of older people in research.

The group recently completed the MET-PREVENT trial to determine whether a drug commonly used to treat diabetes, could improve physical function in older people living with sarcopenia (muscle weakness) and frailty.

To share the findings from MET-PREVENT, the team designed an engaging public event that was accessible and of interest to a group of older adults, many of whom live with frailty and multiple long-term health conditions.

The report discusses aspects of the event, including planning considerations, feedback and evaluation, takeaways and outputs.
