Tools and interventions aimed at maintaining functional ability in older people: assessment and intervention in frailty

 Type: Conference
 Line of Knowledge: 
 Location: Bilbao

Frailty is a very prevalent syndrome in the elderly in which the probability of an adverse event occurring is increased: falls, hospitalisation, institutionalisation and even death. Since 2015, a consortium formed by Health and Gerontological Research institutions, Technology Centres and the UPV/EHU has been working to develop tools aimed at its diagnosis and approach. In this conference we will present the main results achieved by the consortium and we will have the opportunity to learn about initiatives carried out by other entities in our environment.
