The “White Book on Frailty”, endorsed by the International Association on Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG) and the Global Aging Research Network (GARN), offers an overview of current knowledge on the identification of target populations, the assessment of frailty in seniors, and the development of tailored intervention programs.
