October 2017.

In the latest issue of Evidence Matters we share news from the recent 45 and Up Study Annual Forum, including the wide-ranging keynote address by pre-eminent health researcher Professor Ian Frazer AC, and new plans for the Study to collect up to 50,000 blood samples from participants to ensure it becomes an even richer research resource in the future. We also outline new research about how policy agencies use our Evidence Check rapid reviews, and a study that highlights scope for better integrated care for patients with complex needs.
