The intricate web of complex issues associated with frailty can find traction in custom-built processes that consider the vulnerability and prognosis of frailty.Palliative and Therapeutic Harmonization (PATH) is a set of services and protocols that improves the organization of health services and guides health professionals, frail older adults, and families towards appropriate decision-making with frailty using a standardized process. This workshop describes the PATH framework and how it can be used to address polypharmacy. We review the need to popularize frailty-specific treatment guidelines and review evidence-informed guidelines for the treatment of frail older adults with diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. We show that by understanding available evidence, we can develop new approaches that fit the special circumstances of frailty.
