In this article, we discuss the emergence of new models for delivery of Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) in the acute hospital setting. CGA is the core technology of Geriatric Medicine and for hospital inpatients it improves key outcomes such as survival, time spent at home and institutionalisation. Traditionally It is delivered by specialised multidisciplinary teams, often in dedicated wards, but in recent years has begun to be taken up and developed quite early in the admission process (at the 'front door'), across traditional ward boundaries and in specialty settings such as surgical and preoperative care, and oncology. We have scanned recent literature, including observational studies of service evaluations, and service descriptions presented as abstracts of conference presentations to provide an overview of an emerging landscape of innovation and development in CGA services for hospital inpatients.
