Abstract

Objectives and Review questions: The overall research objective of this scoping review is to determine the current evidence on frailty in nursing homes. The objectives of the scoping review are to map the following, as reported in international literature: * Fraily tools used in studies on nursing home residents. * Prevalence of frailty in nursing home residents. * Geriatric syndromes (e.g. cognitive impairment, delirium, depression, falls, incontinence, malnutrition and dizziness) associated with frailty in nursing home residents. * Other types of adverse outcomes related to frailty reported. * Diverse treatment modalities of frailty in nursing home residents. The questions for the scoping review are: * What frailty diagnostic tools have been reported in international literature that have been used in studies on nursing home residents? * What prevalence rates of frailty in nursing home residents have been reported in the literature? * What types of geriatric syndromes have been reported in the literature as being associated with frailty? * What other types of adverse outcomes related to frailty have been reported in the literature? * What treatment modalities for frailty have been reported in the literature?
