62. Comprehensive geriatric assessment for older adults admitted to hospital. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Comprehensive geriatric assessment for older adults admitted to hospital. Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) is a multi-dimensional, multi-disciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic process conducted to determine the medical, mental, and functional problems of older people with frailty so that a co-ordinated and integrated plan for treatment and follow-up can be developed. This is an update of a previously published Cochrane review.We sought to critically appraise and summarise current (...) evidence on the effectiveness and resource use of CGA for older adults admitted to hospital, and to use these data to estimate its cost-effectiveness.We searched CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, three other databases, and two trials registers on 5 October 2016; we also checked reference lists and contacted study authors.We included randomised trials that compared inpatient CGA (delivered on geriatric wards or by mobile teams) versus usual care on a general medical ward or on a ward for older people, usually

63. Integration of Geriatric Assessment in the Care of Patients with Gastrointestinal Malignancies Full Text available with Trip Pro

Integration of Geriatric Assessment in the Care of Patients with Gastrointestinal Malignancies The majority of patients with gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies are older. Recently, it has become evident that elements from a geriatric assessment (GA) are powerful predictors of outcomes such as postoperative morbidity and mortality, length of stay, type of treatment received, and survival across several GI tumor types in older adults. A GA is a systematic evaluation of functional status (...) findings.Increasing data shows that elements from a GA and frailty are consistently associated with negative short- and long-term treatment outcomes in older patients with GI malignancies. Future studies should investigate the impact of geriatric interventions on outcomes.

As I’ve learned, the ED lies at the heart of the elder care (...) ecosystem, a hub connecting seniors to resources, investigations, specialists, and acute care. In this post, I’d like to share the Top Five things I’ve found interesting about geriatric emergency medicine, as well as some practical advice for learners. 1. Older adults come to the ED often, and are more unwell when they do. In Ontario, persons over the age of 75 have the highest ED visit rate (73.1 per 100 of the population, compared to an average of 39.7). 1 In 2015, adults aged 65 or better accounted

The effectiveness of optimised clinical medication reviews for geriatric patients: Opti-Med a cluster randomised controlled trial Inappropriate drug use is a frequent problem in older patients and associated with adverse clinical outcomes and an important determinant of geriatric problems. Clinical medication reviews (CMR) may reduce inappropriate drug use.The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of CMR on quality of life (QoL) and geriatric problems in comparison with usual (...) care in older patients with geriatric problems in the general practice.We performed a cluster randomised controlled trial in 22 Dutch general practices. Patients of ≥65 years were eligible if they newly presented with pre-specified geriatric symptoms in general practice and the chronic use of ≥1 prescribed drug.

Evaluation of Renal Function in Alzheimer’s Disease and Geriatric Patients: Results from a Turkish Two-center Study Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a severe multifactorial neurodegenerative proteopathy associated with advanced age. Discrepancies in the renal function of these patients compared to geriatric patients with dementia have rarely been reported. In this study, we aimed to disclose the importance of associated renal changes for the pathogenesis of AD.Patients with AD (n=107 (...) ) and geriatric patients with dementia and without dementia (n=124) (231 patients in total) from Dokuz Eylul and Cukurova University Hospitals were enrolled in the study. We measured serum Na, K, Cl, Ca, BUN, creatinine, total protein levels and MDRD [eGFR] in all groups.From Izmir Center, the first study arm consisted of patients with AD dementia (n=74), and the second arm included geriatric patients with dementia (n=79). From Adana, 78 patients were recruited to the study, of which 33 were with AD and 45
