Aging in Motion has joined the GLIS (Global Leadership Initiative in Sarcopenia). This international initiative aims to produce an inclusive definition of sarcopenia that can be widely accepted and launched by all the current consensus groups that have proposed definitions that are currently used: Australian and New Zealand Society for Sarcopenia and Frailty Research (ANZSSFR), Asian Working Group for Sarcopenia (AWGS), European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People (EWGSOP) and Sarcopenia Definitions and Outcomes Consortium (SDOC).
This initiative is currently supported by the following societies and organizations:
As GLIS intends to be widely inclusive, all members of participating working groups will be offered the opportunity to be part of the initiative. Also, all participating organizations will nominate members to be part of GLIS. There is no strict limit on the number of members, but expertise and publications in the field are required. All participants will have to declare their potential conflicts of interest to be admitted in the initiative.
What is GLIS doing?
The first step will be to agree on a definition on the general concept of sarcopenia. This step intends to define what are the core elements in sarcopenia. Elements that are considered relevant will be included, even if available measurement instruments are not yet accurate enough to capture those elements or parameters.
This concept paper will use a modified Delphi process involving the GLIS group (different countries and continents, specialties, clinical/research/regulatory settings…)
One or more articles operationalizing the elements that are part of the definition will follow shortly, including measurements, cut-offs, algorithms and outcome measures. Members of GLIS with particular expertise will be asked to join specific working groups on different topics.
