The identification of pre-frailty and frailty syndrome in older adults is important due to its association with the development of disability. It is a priority problem for health systems and quality o...

Frailty prevalence using Frailty Index, associated factors and level of agreement among frailty tools in a cohort of Japanese older adults.

Frailty prevalence defined by the deficit accumulation model (Frailty Index) has limited exploration in a Japanese population. The objective of this paper is to investigate the prevalence of frailty b...

A comparison of three different approaches to defining frailty in older patients with multiple myeloma.

As the aging population grows, interest in applying the concept of frailty to older adults with cancer has increased. This study examines the prevalence of frailty in older patients with multiple myel...

Multidomain Geriatric Screen and Physical Fitness Assessment Identify Prefrailty/Frailty and Potentially Modifiable Risk Factors in Community-Dwelling Older Adults.

Frailty begins in middle life and manifests as a decline in functional fitness. We described a model for community frailty screening and factors associated with prefrailty and frailty and fitness meas...
