Données de validité en efficacité et reproductibilité des échelles de fragilité dans la population générale

Abstract : INTRODUCTION: Numerous tools were created in order to detect frail people. A systematic literature review achieved in 2015 has extracted 71 frailty scales published in health sciences journals. There were two major approaches of frailty: a biological frailty phenotype and a theory of deficit accumulation. The aim of this study was to found validity and reproducibility data for the general population among those 71 scales. METHOD: An additional bibliography research has been undertaken with reproducibility as primary endpoint. Exclusion criteria were: non representative sample of the general population, off topic, unlisted scale in the systematic review. RESULTS: Ten scales have been retained: Frailty Phenotype, Clinical Frailty Scale, Groningen Frailty Indicator, Edmonton Frailty Scale, Triage Risk Screening Tool, Share Frailty Phenotype, Trilburg Frailty Indicator, 3MS, Mini Nutritional Assessment et Mini Nutritional Assessment Short Form. reproducibility data were acceptable to excellent for 8 scales. The validity data were varied, measurements were made at different times and with different samples. CONCLUSION: It was difficult to compare the validity data because of their diversity. A future study should be undertaken by an expert group to select the most reliable, reproducible and feasible tool.
