What are the most effective interventions to improve physical performance in pre-frail and frail adults? It’s surprisingly hard to tell.
As populations age and become frail, evidence-based interventions to improve health outcomes are urgently needed. A newly published systematic review in BMC Geriatrics set out to identify interventions that were most effective in improving physical performance in older adults at increased risk of negative outcomes. In this blog post, the authors of the review discuss why this was harder than expected and what can be done to design better interventions.
