The comprehensive geriatric care models involved pre-operative CGA, and intervention tools to address cognition, frailty, and functional status. In non-cardiac high-risk surgeries, geriatric care models with CGA, there was no cumulative significant differences in the prevalence of delirium, LOS, 30-days readmission rates, and 30-day mortality. Further RCTs are needed to delineate the benefits of comprehensive geriatric care model on postoperative outcomes.
