Triage of frail elderly with reduced exercise tolerance in primary care (TREE). A clustered randomized diagnostic study

BMC Public Health, 06/08/2012

The cluster randomized comparison will reveal whether this yield will result in subsequent improvements in functional health and/or health related quality of life.
