European Commission 2nd International Conference on Frailty in Old Age

Building on the work implemented in 2013, the focus will be on Frailty in old age: identifying priorities for an EU policy

The Conference is structured in three plenary sessions and three parallel workshops. In the morning plenary session key note speakers will argue and give evidence in support of an integrated approach to prevent and treat frailty. This session is followed by a second plenary focusing on examples on how national, regional and international frailty strategies have been implemented or incorporated into the policy agenda. In the afternoon a set of three parallel workshops will allow participants to engage in more in-depth discussions on specific aspects of frailty risk factors and come up with concrete recommendations. The European Commission will close the conference drawing the key conclusions and highlighting milestones for future actions.
