Association of Centre of Excellence Self-Administered Questionnaire (CESAM) Score and Frailty Levels

Overview

This study evaluates the association of the Self-Administered questionnaire (CESAM) score and its stratification of frailty in four levels with incident adverse health events in older community dwellers and to compare this association with three validated frailty indexes which are the Cardiovascular Health Study frailty index, Study of Osteoporotic Fracture index and Rockwood frailty index.

Detailed Description

Older adults' health and functional status is heterogeneous because of the various cumulative effects of chronic diseases and physiologic decline, contributing to a vicious cycle of increased frailty. Thanks to advances in medicine and hygiene, a growing number of older adults spend more years with a greater range of disorders causing disability but not mortality. Health systems thus need to face this new challenge. Quantification of frailty and its association with the occurrence of adverse health events is crucial to understand how efficiently health systems may respond to this situation.

This study aims to examine of association of the Self-Administered questionnaire (CESAM) score and its stratification of frailty in four levels with incident adverse health events in older community dwellers and to compare this association with three validated frailty indexes which are the Cardiovascular Health Study frailty index, Study of Osteoporotic Fracture index and Rockwood frailty index.

Interventions

  • Other: Frailty evaluation
    • It will be used a questionnaire that is called:The Centre of Excellence Self-Administered questionnaire (CESAM). The score of this questionnaire and its stratification of frailty in four levels with incident adverse health events in older community dwellers will be compare with the three validated frailty indexes which are the Cardiovascular Health Study frailty index, Study of Osteoporotic Fracture index and Rockwood frailty index.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Frailty
    • Time Frame: the questionnaire will be used once, after 4 years follow-up.
    • It will be used a questionnaire called:The Centre of Excellence Self-Administered questionnaire(CESAM). This questionnaire evaluates frailty of older adults by providing a score and a stratification of frailty in 4 levels (Vigorous versus mild, moderate and severe frailty).
