Conditional information

The G-8 Score is a screening tool containing 8 questions. The total G-8 score lies between 0 and 17. A higher score indicates a better health status.

It should be noted that the G-8 tool is not aimed at replacing expertise of geriatricians for the diagnosis of frailty. Rather, it should be used as a screening tool to identify patients in need for a further assessment and appropriate care. 

A threshold is suggested at 14 points, meaning that a patient with a score of 14 or lower should undergo full geriatric evaluation.
