FERNANDEZ BATALLA, Marta; MONSALVO SAN MACARIO, Enrique; GONZALEZ AGUNA, Alexandra  and  SANTAMARIA GARCIA, José María. Diseño de un método de análisis para el cálculo de la vulnerabilidad como predictor de la fragilidad en salud. Ene. [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.1, 786.  Epub Nov 16, 2020. ISSN 1988-348X.

Vulnerability, from the perspective of care, is presented as a characteristic of every person. This trait of the person is conditioned by the competence and need for care at a given time. In this article, a vulnerability analysis method, as a predictor of frailty, is developed through the competences and needs that each person presents based on their conditioning characteristics. Therefore, vulnerability is seen as a possibility of damage and/or loss of health, but it is dynamic over time. This method of analyzing has been developed under deductive methodology procedures, which have allowed its development and verification.
