Description

Just over half of our over 65 year old population live with a degree of frailty. So what exactly is frailty? Can it be prevented or controlled? What are the implications of and prognosis with a diagnosis of frailty? What are the benefits of early recognition?
I'm discussing these and related questions with Dr Paul Baughan, GP and National Clinical Lead for Palliative & End of Life Care with Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS).
