The electronic Rapid Fitness Assessment (eRFA) is a questionnaire developed at Memorial Sloan Kettering and used by doctors on the Geriatrics Service to gauge and understand an older patient’s level of fitness. Studies have shown that the fitness level of cancer patients may expose them to unnecessary risks, side effects, and complications. The eRFA includes assessments of functional status (Karnofsky Performance Status, basic and instrumental activities of daily living, use of assistive device, fall history, Timed Up and Go Test, quality of vision and hearing); level of social support and social activity; emtotional well-being; nutritional status; polypharmacy; and cognitive status.
