Surveys regarding Health Literacy (HL) on Functional Decline and Frailty Related to Ageing
– (included) questionnaires: for doctors and for 60+ older adult patients –


I took note of the fact that the WG for Healthy and Active Ageing of the CPME is developing two international surveys regarding Health Literacy (HL) on Functional Decline and Frailty Related to Ageing, including with a customized questionnaire – for doctors and respectively, for 60+ older adult patients – included within each of these studies.

I could read the detailed background/ theoretical-methodological basis and the content of the related questionnaire I have to fill in – displayed on the official web site of the European Commission (in English – operational – the one for doctors) and I have understood its content and which is the goal it aims.
My doctor clearly explained to me in what consists this research project, and which is the goal it aims (this part – only for the questionnaire dedicate to older adult patients).
Accordingly, I herein give my consent to be included, as a volunteer respondent, in this survey and consequently, to answer to the questionnaire it encompasses.

By signing this informed consent, I also express the agreement that my data, resulting from evaluations within in this study, to be used by its makers for scientific teaching and/or health/ social policy decision scopes, keeping adequate confidentiality in respect to the related international standard regulations.
