Managing Frailty. A comprehensive approach to promote a disability-free advanced age: the ADVANTAGE initiative
ADVANTAGE will build a common understanding on frailty to be used by Member States on which to base a common management approach of older people who are frail or at risk for developing frailty in the European Union.
The identification of the core components of frailty and its management should promote the needed changes in the organization and the implementation of the Health and Social Systems to provide those models of care that, stemming from the particular health profile of each Member State (MS), will allow them to face the challenge of frailty within a common framework.
ADVANTAGE will summarise the current State of the Art for the different components of frailty and its management, both at individual and population level, will collect information on the development of programs to manage frailty in older adults in the EU and will propose, as its main outcome, a common European model to approach frailty. This model will include a road map that, considering the degree of frailty policies� development, will propose interventions for frail and at risk people and will establish tailored milestones for each MS in order to achieve a comprehensive approach to promote a disability-free advanced age. Furthermore, the model will identify gaps of knowledge in the field that would benefit from further research.

VIGOUR will effectively support care authorities in progressing the transformation of their health and care systems to provide sustainable models for integrated care which will facilitate identification of good practice and scaling-up. This will be achieved through the delivery of an evidence-based integrated care support programme designed to understand and guide 16 care authorities through a staged process of analysis, advice on good practice and training in care system capacity and capability building and implementation approaches at the operational, organisational and strategic levels of stakeholders involved in different localities throughout Europe. In practice, care authorities will be supported in focussing their care integration ambitions, in operationally preparing the implementation of good practice suitably aligned to any prevailing local circumstances, and finally in rolling out these practices to at least one percent of their overall target population in the framework of local scaling-up projects as an integral part of project plans. Knowledge exchange and mutual learning throughout this process will be enhanced by a twinning scheme bringing together VIGOUR “pioneer” care authorities with “followers”. Further care authorities will benefit from the experiences gained by the VIGOUR participants throughout the staged scaling-up process in terms of dedicated webinar and podcast programmes.
