Abstract:
Palliative Care and Frail Older Adults
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2005
Author:Raudonis, Barbara, PhD, APRN, BC
P.I. Institution Name:University of Texas at Arlington
Title:Assistant Professor
Chronological age alone does not determine the vulnerability or frailty of an older adult. Fraility however, can impact an older adult's quality of life. This session will explain how frailty is an indication for palliative care in older adults. The presentation will include: a conceptual overview of frailty, description of its clinical presentation, a discussion of risk-factors, an explanation of the impact of co-morbidity, and suggested treatment options. The palliative care team's role in improving the quality of life for frail, older adults will be discussed.
