BMC Primary Care is calling for submissions to our Collection on Frailty in primary care.
Frailty is an age-related medical condition of reduced function and physiological reserve, that is of increased relevance in modern primary care due to the increased pace of population ageing. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) report that the proportion of the world’s population over 60 years will double by 2050. Furthermore, in 2050, 80% of older people will live in low or middle-income countries. This means the effective management of age-related conditions such as frailty is ever increasing global importance.
