Pain and frailty are both prevalent and have severe health impacts among older adults. We conducted a cross-sectional observational study to examine the association between pain and frailty, and depression as a mediator and its interaction with pain on frailty among 1788 Chinese community-dwelling older adults. Physical frailty, pain intensity and depressive symptoms were assessed using the Frailty Phenotype, the revised Faces Pain Scale (FPS-R), and the 5-item Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-5), respectively...

Being able to identify socially frail older adults is essential for designing interventions and policy and for the prediction of health outcomes, both on the level of individual older adults and of the population. The aim of the present study was to adapt the Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) to the Dutch language and culture for those purposes. A systematic cross-cultural adaptation of the initial Social Vulnerability Index was performed following five steps: initial translation, synthesis of translations, back translation, a Delphi procedure, and a test for face validity and feasibility...

A frailty index (FI) based entirely on common clinical and laboratory tests might offer scientific advantages in understanding ageing and pragmatic advantages in screening. Our main objective was to compare an FI based on common laboratory tests with an FI based on self-reported data; we additionally investigated if the combination of subclinical deficits with clinical ones increased the ability of the FI to predict mortality. In this secondary analysis of the 2003-2004 and 2005-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data, 8888 individuals aged 20+ were evaluated...

OBJECTIVE: Computerized tomography (CT) imaging is routine in oncologic care and can be used to measure muscle quantity and composition that may improve prognostic assessment of older patients. This study examines the association of single-slice CT-assessed muscle measurements with a frailty index in older adults with cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using the Carolina Senior Registry, we identified patients with CT imaging within 60days ± of geriatric assessment (GA)...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the impact of frailty as measured by a frailty deficit index (FI) on outcomes in advanced epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) after primary debulking surgery (PDS). METHODS: Women with Stage IIIC/IV EOC who underwent PDS between 1/1/2003-12/31/2011 were included. Medical records were reviewed for patient characteristics and outcomes. The FI includes 30 items scored at 0, 0.5 or 1 and is calculated by summing across all the item scores and dividing by the total...

BACKGROUND: Various factors including cardio-metabolic disorders are found to be correlated with frailty. With the increase in age, older adults are likely to have elevated blood glucose level. In this study we intend to investigate the prevalence and incidence of frailty in the pre-diabetic and diabetic community dwelling elderly population and the associated risk factors. METHODS: At baseline total of 10,039 subjects with a mean age of 70.51 (±7.82) were included...

BACKGROUND: Frailty is a state of increased vulnerability to adverse outcomes. The frailty index (FI), defined by the deficit accumulation approach, is a sensitive instrument to measure levels of frailty, and therefore important for longitudinal studies of aging. AIMS: To develop an FI in the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam (LASA), and to examine the predictive validity of this FI for 19-year mortality. METHODS: LASA is an ongoing study among Dutch older adults, based on a nationally representative sample...

BACKGROUND: Public awareness of and attitude toward disease is an important issue for patients. Public awareness of essential tremor (ET) has never been studied. METHODS: We administered a 10-min, 31-item questionnaire to 250 consecutive enrollees. These included three samples carefully chosen to have a potential range of awareness of ET: 100 individuals ascertained from a vascular disease clinic, 100 individuals from a general neurology clinic, and 50 Parkinson's disease (PD) patients...

BACKGROUND: The Frailty Index (FI), proposed by Rockwood and Mitniski, measures the deficits accumulation occurring with aging, and can be generated from the results of a comprehensive clinical assessment. Its construct (based on pure arithmetical assumptions) may represent a unique feature for supporting unbiased comparisons among clinical facilities/services. OBJECTIVE: To propose an example depicting how the FI may support health economic evaluations and provide insights for public health...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study is to identify and review screening tools for frailty in older adults admitted to inpatient hospital care with respect to their validity, reliability and feasibility. METHODS: Studies were identified through systematically searching PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Embase and PsycINFO and screening reference lists till June 2014. Papers dealing with screening tools aimed at identifying frail older patients in in-hospital care, and including information about validity, reliability or feasibility, were included in the review...

OBJECTIVES: This study used latent growth curve modeling (LGCM) to estimate the independent and joint associations between frailty and depression trajectories and likelihood of nursing home admission and falls resulting in injury. METHODS: Data come from five waves (2004-2012) of the Health and Retirement Study. Community-dwelling individuals aged 51 and older (N = 13,495) were analyzed using LGCM. Frailty was measured using a frailty index consisting of 30 deficits...

BACKGROUND: Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) is a multidimensional method to detect frailty in elderly patients. Time saving could be accomplished by identifying those individual items that classify elderly cancer patients at risk for feasibility of chemotherapy and for mortality. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients older than 70 years of age were assessed before the first chemotherapy administration. GA consisted of the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA), Informant Questionnaire on Cognitive Decline in the Elderly (IQCODE), Groningen Frailty Indicator (GFI) and Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE)...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Kenneth Rockwood, Miranda McMillan, Arnold Mitnitski, Susan E Howlett
INTRODUCTION: Easily employed measures of frailty are needed in the evaluation of elderly people. Recently, a frailty index (FI) based on deficits in commonly used laboratory tests (the FI-LAB) has been proposed. To address the usefulness of the FI-LAB in long-term care (LTC) settings, we studied institutionalized participants in the Canadian Study of Health and Aging first clinical examination database. Our objectives were to compare the FI-LAB with a clinical FI LTC (FI-Clinical-LTC) focused on common health deficits seen in LTC and to assay its relationship with mortality...

BACKGROUND: Despite having the third highest proportion of people aged 60 years and older in the world, Germany has been recently reported as having the lowest prevalence of frailty of 15 European countries. The objective of the study is to describe the prevalence of frailty in a large nationwide population-based sample and examine associations with sociodemographic, social support and health characteristics. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional analysis of the first wave of the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Adults (DEGS1) conducted 2008-2011...

OBJECTIVES: A better understanding of the essential components of frailty is important for future developments of management strategies. We aimed to assess the incremental validity of a Comprehensive Model of Frailty (CMF) over Frailty Index (FI) in predicting self-rated health and functional dependency amongst near-centenarians and centenarians. DESIGN: Cross-sectional, community-based study. SETTING: Two community-based social and clinical networks...
