The FACET project, led by Abbott, opens a new registration period for the free course “Recognizing Frailty”, whose program will run for two weeks and has begun on June 18.
Organized by Abbott in collaboration with Aberystwyth University, the formation of this MOOC is to raise awareness about the frailty of older people. Those interested can register by clicking here.
FACET (FrAilty Care and wEll-funcTion), a project framed within the EIT Health Consortium, focuses on the prevention of frailty by monitoring and improving the health of older adults. Its objective is to raise awareness of the frailty among the general population, especially the elderly and professionals, and to promote new strategies.
The Foundation for Biomedical Research of the University Hospital of Getafe, participates as a partner in this project, under the direction of Dr. Rodríguez Mañas.
The course will offer free materials and workshops for doctors and other professionals around the assessment of functional capacity and the assessment of frailty. The content of the course will cover the importance of monitoring frailty, signs and symptoms and risk factors, as well as strategies to determine frailty in older people and solutions in current clinical practice.
