FRAILTY – A societal challenge in need of integrated solutions

October 27th-28th

We are very pleased to welcome you to this Frailty Workshop, mainly intended to deepen in this concept, a state of high vulnerability to low-power stressors, which place older people at high risk of becoming disabled. Frailty has risen in the last two decades as one of the most innovative concepts in the field of Health and Social Sciences for older adults. The old framework approaches disability by treating diseases. Overcoming it by acting on functional issues arises from the main idea of detecting and intervening in the earliest phases of the functional deterioration leading to disability and dependence. Frailty also demands the incorporation of an appropriate technology to provide clues to its detection and diagnosis and to an integrated, continued and coordinated management. Frailty concept offers the best window of opportunity to significantly reduce the burden of disability in our aged societies. Goals: – Updates from key opinion leaders in the field – To introduce EIT and EIT Health to a broad audience in Spain – To present the FACET project: service and product to promote frailty care and prevention – Business opportunities related to frailty – To reach stakeholders and take action regarding frailty.
