Concurrent and Predictive Validity of FRAIL-NH in Hospitalized Older Persons: An Exploratory Study

May 15, 2021

The FRAIL-NH was originally developed for frailty assessment of nursing home (NH) residents. We aimed to compare concurrent, predictive, and known-groups validity between FRAIL-NH and FRAIL, using the Frailty Index (FI) as gold standard reference. We also examined for ceiling effect of both measures in the detection of severe frailty.
