New International Clinical Practice Guidelines Debut

July 19, 2017

An international group of experts from 13 nations has published a new set of clinical practice guideline recommendations for the management of frailty. The recommendations highlight the need to provide evidence-based information to providers, to help providers better recognize and manage frailty, and to improve quality of life and outcomes for those living with reduced strength and function.

The new information appears in the July issue of JAMDA, the official journal of AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, and is titled: “The Asia-Pacific Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Frailty.”
