Overview of Course

CRNAs will explore the Phenotype Theory of Frailty and the Accumulated Deficits Theory of Frailty and possible anesthetic implications of incorporating frailty screening into patient care.  Use of a modified frailty index as a tool in a high-quality preoperative evaluation may help practitioners risk-stratify patients.  This can allow for earlier mobilization of care resources before surgery to improve outcomes.

Learner Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to: 

  1. Define Frailty.
  2. List the 5 traits of the Frailty Phenotype.
  3. Discuss the Accumulated Deficts theory of frailty.
  4. Discuss modified frailty indexes and their potential impact on anesthesia care.
  5. Examin potential anesthetic implications of frailty screening and its impact on intraoperative case management and postoperative outcomes.
