Navigating and Diagnosing Cognitive Frailty in Research and Clinical Domains

Geriatrician Peter Abadir discusses a manuscript published in the journal Nature Aging highlighting the emerging concept of the intersection of physical and cognitive decline in the population of older adults and key areas of agreement and confusion in cognitive frailty research. The lack of consensus on the definition and diagnostic criteria of cognitive frailty makes it difficult to identify and manage patients effectively in clinical settings. His work aims to stimulate further discussion and research in order to better understand cognitive frailty and better serve older patients.
