Program for the promotion and prevention of geriatric syndromes in the elderly based on an evaluation algorithm / Program for the promotion and prevention of geriatric syndromes in the elderly.

Project: Research Project

Project Details


Introduction: Geriatric syndromes constitute a series of highly prevalent conditions in the elderly, of multi-causal origin and that are associated with morbidity and mortality, in addition to being interrelated.

Detecting these syndromes in a timely manner is of vital importance to
care of the elderly, however, the application of validated instruments for this purpose requires a learning curve and dedication time, which primary care personnel do not have.

Objectives: Design a surveillance system for geriatric syndromes that is easy to access and use and can be used in clinical practice and primary health care. In a second phase (not contemplated in this protocol), the development of a tool based on artificial intelligence for the detection and formulation of intervention strategies will be considered.

Commitments / Obligations

Generation of articles for publication in indexed journals.

Validation of a technological product: Clinical decision algorithm Social communication of the knowledge generated by holding conferences aimed at potential users.

Research training in students of Speech Therapy, Physiotherapy, Engineering, Medicine.

Design of a geriatric syndrome prevention protocol that is used for the implementation of measurements of geriatric syndrome parameters.

Circulation of specialized knowledge through the presentation of the results of this project in Academic Events in accordance with the topic investigated.
