HealthTree University: Geriatric Care and Myeloma

How is frailty defined in multiple myeloma? Your frailty score can determine what treatments you can get as well as affect the dosage for various treatments. Find out how a frailty score is collected and used in the videos below. You can watch the entire course on HealthTree University.

39.01    How is frailty defined? What does it mean to be fit, intermediate-fit, frail?


39.02    How is a frailty score determined?


39.03    Are frailty scores being used in clinical trials? How?


39.04    What is personalized fitness-based care?


We’d like to thank our faculty who donated their time in creating these videos, including:

  • Shakira Grant, MBBS
