Final Report - FOD-CC (Frailty operative definition - consensus conference)

Project ID: 261270
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


The aim of the FOD-CC project, which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), was to provide an operative definition of frailty which would be useful in daily practice. This definition was constructed from a wide variety of different expert opinions in order to result in the most complete and concrete definition possible.

The report includes an open-ended preliminary questionnaire which has general and specific questions and then includes the first and second round questionnaires. Finally, there is a flow chart of the Delphi process, as well as five tables with the results of the first round questionnaire, a list of accepted statements, the results from the second round questionnaire, as well as final analysis of the rate of accepted and excluded statements according to each block of questions and according to the alternative classification, correspondingly.
