The Frailty Project is an epidemiological research project with several objectives:

  1. To study the public health impact of frailty (e.g., trends, life-expectancy)
  2. To study mechanisms that explain the relationship between frailty and adverse outcomes
  3. To study the development of frailty in later life, and factors associated with development

In 2019 we will start with an additional research project in which we will study frailty among the oldest old (more information will follow).
