Résumé :

"The NIA/CFN report We Can't Address What We Don't Measure Consistently: Building Consensus on Frailty in Canada, authored by Dr. Samir Sinha, Allan McKee, Ivy Wong, Julie Dunning, Michael Nicin, and Dr. John Muscedere, shows that frailty is a common condition more prevalent in older populations, which increases an individual's risk of falls, emergency department visits, hospitalization, institutionalization, and death. The problem, the authors argue, is that frailty is not being measured consistently in Canada, which makes it difficult for health providers and governments to address.

The report urges the research and health care communities to come to consensus on a common definition of frailty, and argues that clinicians need to consider social factors, such as poverty, housing and loneliness, which can contribute to how well individuals cope with frailty." (NIA)
