Developed by the Information Dissemination Core of the Johns Hopkins Older Americans Independence Center, FrailtyScience.org is a state-of-the-art online resource for clinicians and researchers that focuses on the science of frailty and resiliency, and how it may impact the health and wellness of older adults. The overall goal is to improve the understanding of how frailty develops, how to best assess it, and how to best treat and prevent frailty-related decline. FrailtyScience.org offers an array of content in multiple formats, including mini-review summaries of relevant research and clinical topics; guidance on selecting a frailty assessment instrument; a blog to highlight and provide commentary on research and practice; and the "Fighting Frailty" podcast series.
