What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

102. Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment and predicted 3-year survival in treatment planning for frail patients with early breast cancer (Abstract)

Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment and predicted 3-year survival in treatment planning for frail patients with early breast cancer Endocrine therapy alone has been a popular treatment for oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer in elderly patients, although it may be inadequate in those surviving more than 2-3 years. The aim of this study was to estimate 3-year survival in frail patients with early breast cancer, to inform treatment decisions.A risk score was created to estimate 3-year (...) survival in individual patients using data from patients who had Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) in a specialist clinic before decisions about their breast cancer treatment were made. The data were analysed using logistic regression.Ninety-seven (29·6 per cent) of the 328 patients had died by 3 years. Four components of the assessment proved strongly associated with survival: Mini Mental State Examination, Barthel Index of Activities of Daily Living, instrumental Activities of Daily Living

103. Comprehensive geriatric care for patients with hip fractures: a prospective, randomised, controlled trial. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Comprehensive geriatric care for patients with hip fractures: a prospective, randomised, controlled trial. Most patients with hip fractures are characterised by older age (>70 years), frailty, and functional deterioration, and their long-term outcomes are poor with increased costs. We compared the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of giving these patients comprehensive geriatric care in a dedicated geriatric ward versus the usual orthopaedic care.We did a prospective, single-centre (...) , randomised, parallel-group, controlled trial. Between April 18, 2008, and Dec 30, 2010, we randomly assigned home-dwelling patients with hip-fractures aged 70 years or older who were able to walk 10 m before their fracture, to either comprehensive geriatric care or orthopaedic care in the emergency department, to achieve the required sample of 400 patients. Randomisation was achieved via a web-based, computer-generated, block method with unknown block sizes. The primary outcome, analysed by intention

Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine position statement 22. Frailty in older people Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine Position Statement No 22 Frailty in Older People Key Points 1. Frailty is an important concept for all those who plan and provide care for older people. It is closely linked to advanced age and disease-related processes, yet is a distinct construct. While some people remain fit and active as they grow older, others experience complex (...) problems: chronic disease, dependency and disability. Frailty is a term to describe this latter group, capturing differences in health status among older people. 2. “Frail” older people are at greatest risk of adverse outcomes (worsening disability, institutionalisation and death) and are more likely to present with a geriatric syndrome (particularly delirium and falls). 3. There are many validated tools to measure frailty as a clinical syndrome or phenotype. The most well-known and widely used

BODE index or geriatric multidimensional assessment for the prediction of very-long-term mortality in elderly patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease? A prospective cohort study a multidimensional approach-the BODE index-has been proposed for prognostic purposes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and theoretically seems to be well suited for elderly people, but there is a lack of data in this population, especially with respect to long-term survival. The objective (...) of this study is to evaluate whether the BODE index can predict both long (5 years) and very-long (10 and 15 years)-term mortality in an unselected population of elderly people with COPD better than a set of variables commonly taken into account in a geriatric multidimensional assessment (MDA).: this was a multicentre, prospective, population study. We used data from the SaRA study, which included 563 elderly people with COPD whose vital status was ascertained for up to 15 years after enrolment
