Fraulty in the ED

Christian Nickel

Christian will speak about frailty, a syndrome characterized by increased vulnerability to stressors. Frailty is a marker of adverse outcomes for older ED patients in Emergency Departments. He is going to try to convince you that a standardised approach to identifying frailty through use of a screening tool is important. 

Christian Nickel is an emergency physician at the Emergency Department of the University Hospital Basel, Switzerland and chair of the Geriatric Emergency Medicine Section of the European Society of Emergency Medicine (EUSEM).
