Abstract

The impact of multiple diagnoses on disability and quality of life (QoL) is well documented in older people, but less is known about chronic symptoms – the submerged part of the iceberg. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of chronic symptoms in community-dwelling older people,
Their associations with disability in basic activities of daily living (BADL) and QoL, and their public health impact.
