RODRIGUEZ DIAZ, María Teresa; PEREZ-MARFIL, María Nieves  and  CRUZ-QUINTANA, Francisco. Approach for standardized care plan that prevents dependency and fragility. Gerokomos [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.4, pp.137-143. ISSN 1134-928X.

The aim of this study is to analyze the concept of fragility. There has been a systematic literature review on articles related to the concept of fragility in MEDLINE-PubMed and DIALNET. After analyzing documents identified, it is concluded that main problems are related to nutrition, health conditions, psychological factors, accumulation of deficits and level of physical activity. From these data we propose a standardized care planning to prevent frailty and dependency.

Keywords : Frail elderly; nursing intervention; dependency; disability; nursing care plan.
