AAG & ANZSGM Webinar: Frailty - mechanisms, measurement and management

Tuesday 24th August 2021 - 1.00pm to 2.00pm (AEST)

Some people remain physically active and socially engaged as they grow older; others experience chronic co-morbidities and decline in functional and cognitive abilities. Since these differences are not accurately captured by chronological age alone, gerontologists are increasingly using biological age or frailty to describe patients’ health status. Frail older people are vulnerable to poor outcomes (including falls, institutionalisation and death).

This webinar will present a state-of-the-art update on the mechanisms, measurement and management of frailty, with an emphasis on clinical relevance.

Presenters: Dr Emily Gordon (Princess Alexandra Hospital Brisbane),
Dr Natasha Reid (Centre for Health Services Research at the University of Queensland)
, and
Professor Ruth E. Hubbard (Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane)
