*  Some Random Thoughts on Geriatrics in Scotland from a US perspective | GeriPal - Geriatrics and Pall
GeriPal - Geriatrics and Palliative Care Blog. Monday, August 23, 2010. For the past two months started July 2010 I have been in Scotland working in various geriatrics and palliative care settings.

The course consists of two days of geriatric didactics, a one day introduction to palliative care, and three and a half weeks of clinical geriatrics, which is inpatient.

(1/2563) Association between serum fructosamine and mortality in elderly women: the study of osteoporotic fractures.

Serum fructosamine levels can be used to estimate long-term serum glucose values and can be measured in frozen serum. The authors examined whether fructosamine levels were associated with mortality in a cohort of 9,704 white women (> or = 65 years of age) recruited from September 1986 to October 1988 at four clinical centers in the United States. A random sample of women who had died during a mean of 6 years of follow-up (n = 55) was compared with randomly selected controls (n = 276, 54 of whom had died). Fructosamine assays were performed blinded to vital status. Hazard ratios with 95% confidence intervals were adjusted for age, clinical center, smoking, hypertension, and serum albumin and cholesterol levels. Each standard deviation (46 micromol) increase in fructosamine level was associated with a 1.3-fold (95% confidence interval (CI) 1.0-1.6, p = 0.04) increased rate of all-cause mortality, including a 1.5-fold (95% CI 1.0-2.1, p = 0.03) increase in cardiovascular disease mortality. Elevated fructosamine levels (>285 micromol/liter) were associated with a 4.3-fold (95% CI 1.6-12, p = 0.004) increased rate of cardiovascular mortality; in women without a history of diabetes, the hazard ratio was 4.6 (95% CI 1.3-16, p = 0.02). Fructosamine level, or another indicator of glycemia, should be included when the risk of cardiovascular disease among older patients is evaluated.  (+info)

(2/2563) Characteristics of discrepancies between self-reported visual function and measured reading speed. Salisbury Eye Evaluation Project Team.

PURPOSE: Visual impairment is a risk factor for morbidity in the elderly and is often screened for by self-report. This study evaluates whether there are subsets for whom there is a discrepancy between self-reported and measured function. METHODS: The prevalence of a discrepancy between self-reported difficulty reading a newspaper and measured reading speed was determined in 2520 community-based men and women, aged 65 to 84 years, and the discrepant group characterized by polychotomous regression. RESULTS: Of subjects who reported minimal difficulty reading a newspaper, 10.8% (227/2107) read newsprint-sized text (0.21 degrees) more slowly than 80 words/min, a level previously shown to be necessary for sustained reading. Poor visual acuity, presence of psychiatric symptoms, and less satisfaction with vision were associated with being in the group that read slowly and reported difficulty with reading. Better cognition, better visual acuity, more years of education, white race, and fewer psychiatric symptoms were associated with being in the group that read more quickly and reported minimal difficulty. When reading the text size at which subjects read their fastest, only 2.6% of those with minimal difficulty remained discrepant. These individuals were more likely to have less education, be male, be African American, and have poorer cognitive status than those who did not remain discrepant. CONCLUSIONS: A subset of the elderly population have a substantial discrepancy between self-reported reading difficulty and measured reading speed. In some, this discrepancy may be based on underlying expectations and experiences, and in others it may represent a transition from no visual impairment to visual impairment.  (+info)

(3/2563) Outcomes of routine testing of liver enzymes in institutionalized geriatric patients.

This study sought to identify any benefit of routine liver function tests (LFTs) in chronically ill, geriatric patients and to assess which patients require evaluation for abnormal LFT levels. A retrospective chart review was carried out on 268 consecutive patients (M:F = 1.2, mean age 77 years, range 61-98 years) presenting for acute care from a long-term care facility. All were without jaundice, right upper quadrant pain, pruritus, bruising, or signs of chronic liver disease. The degree of LFT abnormality (aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, total bilirubin, or alkaline phosphatase) during admission was compared to the clinical diagnosis at the time of discharge. The most common diagnoses were pneumonia, urinary tract infection, and peripheral or coronary disease in 186 (60%). Thirty-seven patients (14%) had elevated LFT levels on admission. The levels normalized within 2 days in 26 of these patients, 25 of whom had a history of vascular disease (96%). Of the 11 remaining patients, 4 had coexistent vascular disease (36%), and 5 had LFT levels twice normal (none with vascular disease) and underwent abdominal ultrasound. One patient had a common bile duct stone successfully extracted. Enzyme abnormalities were due to hepatitis B or medication use in 10 of 11 patients. No patient had liver biopsy. All but one of the 268 patients were discharged without further evaluation. Over one year of follow up, no patient returned for a liver-related problem. Based on these findings, only those patients with LFT levels that are twice normal and which do not normalize within 2 days warrant further evaluation. Transient LFT abnormalities may be due to decreased liver perfusion.  (+info)

(4/2563) Outcome measures for routine use in dementia services: some practical considerations.

OBJECTIVES: To work with specialist community teams to assess the practicality and acceptability of identified outcome measures for routine use in dementia services. SETTING: Seven specialist dementia services: four multidisciplinary teams, a specialist service for carers, a community psychiatric nurse team, and a day hospital. SUBJECTS: 20 members of staff from the specialist dementia services including psychiatry, community psychiatric nursing, social work, occupational therapy, Admiral nursing, ward management, geriatric nursing. MAIN MEASURE: A questionnaire designed to assess staff views on the use of six outcome measures in routine practice in terms of practicality, relevance, acceptability, and use in improving care. RESULTS: Each of the outcome measures took 15 to 30 minutes to administer. All were rated as easy to use and as relevant to dementia services and to carers. Staff commented that the measures could be useful in routine practice for structured assessment and service evaluation, but highlighted the need for sensitive use of measures with carers. CONCLUSIONS: These measures consider the main domains of functioning for people with dementia and their carers. The measures are suitable for use in routine practice in dementia services and are acceptable to staff and carers. The project underlined the need for management support, staff ownership of measures, and training in using outcome measures. Staff concerns about service evaluation need to be acknowledged.  (+info)

(5/2563) Strategies to improve the quality of oral health care for frail and dependent older people.

The dental profile of the population of most industrialised countries is changing. For the first time in at least a century most elderly people in the United Kingdom will soon have some of their own natural teeth. This could be beneficial for the frail and dependent elderly, as natural teeth are associated with greater dietary freedom of choice and good nutrition. There may also be problems including high levels of dental disease associated with poor hygiene and diet. New data from a national oral health survey in Great Britain is presented. The few dentate elderly people in institutions at the moment have poor hygiene and high levels of dental decay. If these problems persist as dentate younger generations get older, the burden of care will be substantial. Many dental problems in elderly people are preventable or would benefit from early intervention. Strategies to approach these problems are presented.  (+info)

(6/2563) Staff and patient feedback in mental health services for older people.

OBJECTIVES: To compare the views of patients and staff on the quality of care provided on a psychogeriatric assessment ward over a five year period. To describe the quality improvements which were made as a result of their respective comments. DESIGN: Structured interviews were conducted with both patients and staff to obtain qualitative feedback and suggestions for improvement. An analysis of the percentage of positive and negative comments made by both patients and staff was used to compare the levels of satisfaction on a variety of aspects of the service provided. SETTING: Psychogeriatric inpatient assessment ward. SUBJECTS: 75 patients and 85 staff interviews were conducted. MAIN MEASURES: Structured interviews covering various aspects of service quality. RESULTS: Staff and patients picked up on different aspects of service quality as important. Quality improvements which arose from the interviews were clearly different. Generally patients were more positive about the physical environment and standards of professional care than staff, but less positive about issues of privacy, social interaction, and empowerment. CONCLUSIONS: The perspectives of patients and staff in this area are not interchangeable. Both series of interviews led to several positive changes in the quality of care. Interviews with staff seem to have been valuable in a low morale situation. A structured interview format provided patients with an opportunity to feedback openly and led to changes in service quality which would not otherwise have occurred.  (+info)

(7/2563) Identification and assessment of high-risk seniors. HMO Workgroup on Care Management.

CONTEXT: Many older adults with chronic illnesses and multidimensional needs are at high risk of adverse health outcomes, poor quality of life, and heavy use of health-related services. Modern proactive care of older populations includes identification of such high-risk individuals, assessment of their health-related needs, and interventions designed both to meet those needs and to prevent undesirable outcomes. OBJECTIVE: This paper outlines an approach to the tasks of identifying and assessing high-risk seniors. Intervention identification of high-risk seniors (also called case finding) is accomplished through a combination of periodic screening, recognition of high-risk seniors by clinicians, and analysis of administrative databases. Once identified, potentially high-risk individuals undergo on initial assessment in eight domains: cognition, medical conditions, medications, access to care, functional status, social situation, nutrition, and emotional status. The initial assessment is accomplished in a 30- to 45-minute interview conducted by a skilled professional--usually one with a background in nursing. The data are used to link some high-risk persons with appropriate services and to identify others who require more detailed assessments. Detailed assessment is often performed by interdisciplinary teams of various compositions and methods of operation, depending on local circumstances. CONCLUSION: The rapid growth in Medicare managed care is presenting many opportunities for developing more effective strategies for the proactive care for older populations. Identification and assessment of high-risk individuals are important initial steps in this process, paving the way for testing of interventions designed to reduce adverse health consequences and to improve the quality of life.  (+info)

(8/2563) A population-based study of environmental hazards in the homes of older persons.

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to estimate the population-based prevalence of environmental hazards in the homes of older persons and to determine whether the prevalence of these hazards differs by housing type or by level of disability in terms of activities of daily living (ADLs). METHODS: An environmental assessment was completed in the homes of 1000 persons 72 years and older. Weighted prevalence rates were calculated for each of the potential hazards and subsequently compared among subgroups of participants characterized by housing type and level of ADL disability. RESULTS: Overall, the prevalence of most environmental hazards was high. Two or more hazards were found in 59% of bathrooms and in 23% to 42% of the other rooms. Nearly all homes had at least 2 potential hazards. Although age-restricted housing was less hazardous than community housing, older persons who were disabled were no less likely to be exposed to environmental hazards than older persons who were nondisabled. CONCLUSIONS: Environmental hazards are common in the homes of community-living older persons.  (+info)

What is the assessment for borderline personality disorder like?


  • My dr thinks I have BPD and not aspergers syndrome as originally thought. Just wondered what is the assessment like? How long does it last? How many people carry out the assessment? What sort of things do they ask? I've looked up the process on google but all I can find is it is assessed on a basis of signs and severity of symptoms and history. But that doesn't really help or make me feel less anxious about it I'm in the UK if that makes a difference.
  • A psychiatrist diagnosis this disorder by getting all your symptoms down, watching how you behave etc. It can last any length of time, its different for everyone. Good luck <3


What should I expect from a personality assessment?


  • My therapist has referred to my a clinical psychologist and asked me to take a personality assessment test, or something. Apparently she is worried I might have some personality disorder. She didn't tell me anything else, so I have no idea what to expect. Does anyone have an idea what such tests are usually? Has anyone here taken one before? And should I be worried? Can they decide from the test that I'm dangerous and do something I don't want them to do? I appreciate any input on this, no matter how small.
  • I've never taken a professional personality assessment test before and I already know the outcome if I were to take one anyways... But maybe your therapist is just trying weigh the possibilities? I don't think you should be worried, she's only trying to help you and if you're really uncomfortable with taking the test then point that out to her. Maybe you could take it another time after discussing why she thinks you should take it. Sorry if my answer is of no help, but don't worry about this I'm sure it's not that big of a deal :]


How do you a tell a parent you think the child needs developmental assessment?


  • I babysit a little child who I think needs an assessment. I know that the sooner the child gets an assessment, the sooner the child can get the help needed. I have been doing this long enough to know that there is something not right. The parents though are professionals who would be totally mortified at the idea. However, this is their first child and they have nothing to compare the child to. He has not shown any improvement in a year and a half and is in fact regressing in many ares of social development. He is acting like an 18mth old - 2 year old overall, for example in his speech, coordination, major OCD, excessive crying, spins and sings songs to himself, sensitivity to sensory stimulation/touch, and sort of has this bewildered odd look about his face. I strongly suspect Autism, Asbergers or mild retardation but do not claim to be a psychologist. I am feeling guilty about not disclosing my suspicions. Of course,I won't drop the A word but need some suggestions on how to tactfully say that he needs to be checked out by someone more than a regular doctor who has about 500 patients (who here in Canada with free medicare don't spend more than about 3 minutes with a kid on his yearly check up). Should I say anything or just keep my mouth shut and let them figure it out for themselves? Any tips on what to say exactly? if anything? My main objective is to plant the seed but not offend. There is a chance he is okay and I am hoping I am wrong and he grows into a regular teenager. I hope I am wrong about him and they can come back to me in 10 years and say he turned out fine! My main objective is to plant the seed but not offend. There is a chance he is okay and I am hoping I am wrong and he grows into a regular teenager. I hope I am wrong about him and they can come back to me in 10 years and say he turned out fine! I think they will be upset if I say anything. What to do???
  • The U.S. Center for Disease Control lists milestones for different ages and also warning signs of problems: http://www.pricelessparenting.com/Development-Stages.aspx You can print out a information sheet for this child's age and then use that as a starting point in talking to the parents. His parents will likely be very sensitive so you'll need to point out some of your concerns without making them feel like bad parents. I think you'll be doing the child a huge favor. The early kids who need help get that help, the better off they are.


What is an assessment session when getting treated for depression?


  • When I made an appointment, they told me that I would need to attend a mandatory assessment session. Does that mean they wont be able to give me anti-depressants right away? What will happen at this "session"?
  • Ask you why your there, whats happening in your words. They then ask you questions relating to the symptoms/problems you describe to them. If you have a history of mental illness you'll probably be given some medications but if you're just now seeing them its a 50/50 shot. They may or may not give you anything. Diagnoses take a while to appear as it involves medication usage, symptoms, and much more information including your family history. It'll probably last about 30 mins. My first visit for my problems resulted in receiving medication but my diagnoses was not given until a few months later when I was hospitalized. So like me, they may give you something for now but not a diagnoses until a few months down the line when they can view your habits, feelings, etc.


How long after orthodontic assessment will I get braces?

How to best handle muscular atrophy of a geriatric AK amputee's stump when not wearing the artificial leg?


  • The combination of the prosthetic sock and the socket when wearing the artificial leg provides support to the stump. But, especially in a geriatric amputee who wears the artificial leg for short periods, what is the best way to keep the stump in good shape and not have the muscle fall off the bone over time?
  • There are some shrinker sock products out there that help keep everything tight and together. you may also look into a thick liner to help keep the shape. I wear the Ossur Iceross seal in liners and it keeps all the tissue pretty secure. There are also lots of exercises that can help keep the tissue where it belongs.


How can I locate a professional to provide a medical disability assessment for an insurance settlement?


  • I need to find an independent, qualified person/service to provide expert testimony for an insurance settlement case. Specifically, to provide an assessment of the nature, extent, and prognosis of injuries I sustained in an auto accident - with the possibility of using this information if the case goes to court. I have looked online for "disability assessments", "disability profiles", etc., but am not finding anything in my local area (Portland, Oregon). Any suggestions?
  • if you are going to court, you had best find an attorney, it's his job to find you an expert witness.
