This Thursday, April 21, at 10 a.m. ET, the Aging in Motion Coalition holds a free expert webinar on frailty with featured speaker Francesca Cerreta, senior scientific officer, European Medicines Agency (EMA).
In December of 2015, the EMA released a draft working paper titled “Points to consider on frailty: Evaluation instruments for baseline characteristics of clinical trial populations.” Among other considerations, this working paper includes the short physical performance battery (SPPB) and gait speed as measures of possible use in identifying vulnerable populations at risk of adverse outcomes. This webinar will feature an overview of the working paper as well as the EMA geriatric strategy.
This webinar offers a valuable opportunity to learn more about the issue of frailty from the European expert perspective. To register and for more information, please go to the event page.
This webinar is the second in a series of the AIM Coalition's webinars on sarcopenia and related issues. To see AIM’s previous webinar titled “Stakeholder Perspectives on Sarcopenia Patient-Reported Outcome Measures,” go here.
