In the original article there are four references that do not refer to the correct articles.

In the section “Who did frailty interventions work for?”:

i) The third last line on page 208, column 1, “In the study43 investigating geriatric intervention in individual sessions or group sessions…”, has incorrect reference numbering. The correct reference number is 51.

ii) The 12th line on page 208, column 2, “…the context of a range of effects (e.g. Chan et al.33)…”, has incorrect reference numbering. The correct reference number is 42.

In the section “Recommendations for practice”:

i) The last line on page 212, column 1, “Physical exercise programs provided in groups to pre-frail and frail older adults that are instituionalized32…”, has incorrect reference numbering. The correct reference number is 41.

ii) The 15th last line on page 213, column 1, “…in community dwelling older adults that are at risk of becoming frail31…”, has incorrect reference numbering. The correct reference number is 22.

Apologies are offered to readers of the journal that these were not detected during the submission process.
