Abstract
A research project, the “Construction of Frailty Cohort for Elderly and Intervention Study,” funded by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, has been ongoing since December 2015. The Korean Frailty and Aging Cohort Study (KFACS) aims to identify risk factors for adverse outcomes associated with frailty in community‐dwelling older adults, as well as means of prevention. KFACS is a multicenter, longitudinal study, with the baseline survey being conducted in 2016–2017. The sample (n=3,000) consists of those aged 70–84 years, stratified by age and gender, recruited from urban and rural regions nationwide. An in‐person interview and health examination are performed every 2 years. This project is also conducting many intervention studies. Project interventions focus on nutrition and exercise. The nutritional intervention study compares the effects of 1.2 g/kg versus 1.5 g/kg daily protein intake on sarcopenia and frailty in older Koreans. The exercise trial examines the effectiveness of an information and communication technology‐based program in preventing or reducing frailty.
