The  The Past, Present and Future of Medicine SAM & RCPE Conference  was held in Edinburgh at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th of September 2016. Frailty was a strong theme throughout the event and CLAHRC NWL presented a series of posters on work focusing around the topic. The posters were orally presented to the audience with an opportunity for some one on one comments, questions and thoughts.

The 6 Frailty Posters covered the topics ranging from patient outcomes to assessment and communication.
