Study participants wanted: Factors influencing implementation of four frailty-screening tools in team-based primary care clinics in Canada
Identifying frailty risks in older adults has the potential to limit admissions into healthcare facilities, and help maintain their quality of life, yet they are still poorly implemented in primary care clinics in Canada. The goal of this project is to compare users’ perceptions of the factors influencing implementation and usability of four screening tools in Canadian family practice clinics: (1) the interRai Preliminary Screener; (2) the Pictorial Fit Frail Scale (PFFS); (3) the Clinical Frailty Scale (CFS); and (4) the Program for the Integration of Services for the Maintenance of Autonomy into 7 items (PRISMA-7).
In order to compare the implications of using frailty or risk screening tools, as perceived by older adults, the researchers are looking to have persons aged 65 years old or more in each province participate to the study. If you are interested in participating, please return to the Consent to Contact form to Heather Roland, email@example.com or call 587.758.6890 if you have further questions. The deadline to indicate your interest is January 21. For additional information, please reference the project protocols.
