Frailty RFP Update

June 1, 2015

Measurement of frailty in the elderly can be helpful in identifying the most appropriate type of care, and care setting, provided to elderly patients. It has also been suggested that early identification of frailty can inform patients, and both formal and informal caregivers, on therapeutic options and treatment decisions, including those for acute care, restorative care, advance care planning and appropriate end-of-life care.

CFN recently adjudicated projects under two competitions in the area of measurement of frailty: knowledge synthesis projects and implementation projects. Notification of funding is occurring this week, and projects will be announced in next month’s newsletter.
