The ongoing aging of the population will lead to an increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and functional limitation. Preventative measures need to be promoted to prevent health care utilization and health costs explosion. Among these measures, those aimed at promoting early recognition of chronic conditions associated with functional decline, will have to be reinforced. This paper proposes simple, feasible, and efficient procedures to screen, in primary care practices, common geriatric conditions, as cognitive impairment, gait impairment, hearing and vision impairment or functional limitation.
