Thank you for your interest in the FOCUS Project. FOCUS aims to standardize research and translation studies so that common outcome measures are captured in all frailty studies. A set of common outcome measures will enable study findings to be collectively analyzed to better inform patient care.
A Delphi process will be used to arrive at consensus on a set of common outcome measures. You are invited to take part in the Delphi study. If you consent to taking part in the Delphi consensus process by completing the information requested below, you will be sent a link to an online survey. The survey asks you to rate outcomes on a scale of 1-9; 1 being not important to include in a common outcome measure set; 9 being critical to include. It is anticipated that the survey will take 20-25 minutes to complete. Three rounds of voting are planned over the span of a few months.

There are no known risks for taking part in this study. While there are no direct benefits to you as a participant, arriving at a set of common outcome measures for frailty will enable future frailty research to be collectively analyzed to better inform patient care. This study has been reviewed for ethical compliance by the Queen’s University Health Sciences and Affiliated Teaching Hospitals Research Ethics Board.
