The ADVANTAGE JA main outcome will be a common European model to approach frailty, leading to the development of improved strategies for diagnosis, care and education for frailty, disability and multi-morbidity. The JA outcomes are expected to contribute to the prevention of the growing burden of disability and chronic diseases and to a more effective response to older people needs of care delivery. ADVANTAGE JA implementation is particularly relevant in Europe as it addresses the demographic change and the associated increasing demand for social and health care, which is a central priority for the EU and its MS.
To achieve this, the JA will focus on:
(1) building a common understanding of the concept and operative definition of frailty versus chronic diseases interventions in the European framework;
(2) developing methodologies and tools for assessment of pre-frail and frail people;
(3) preparing common health care guidelines or frameworks on screening, assessing, and intervening to promote better health in older people and reduce the burden of frailty and chronic diseases.
ADVANTAGE JA will create beyond the state-of-the-art progress in the field of frailty achieved through its public deliverables. During the implementation of the JA, the deliverables will be progressively made available to the public through this page.
