This research paper looks at the effect of a twelve-month individually tailored multifactorial, interdisciplinary intervention targeting frailty, compared with usual care. The intervention reduced phenotypically defined frailty (weakness, slowness, and low energy expenditure) and improved mobility.
In this video Professor John Young, national clinical director for the frail elderly and integration, NHS England, explores the challenges frailty presents for health and care - stressing it is not a disease and affects the whole body and each person differently. He also introduces a new cost-effective coding system, currently under trial in primary care, which focuses on earlier detection.
