Prevalence and treatment of pain in older adults in nursing homes and other long-term care institutions: a systematic review. (1/1026)

BACKGROUND: The high prevalence of pain in older adults and its impact in this age group make it a public health issue, yet few studies of pain relief focus on older adults. Residents of long-term care facilities have more cognitive impairment than their community-living counterparts and may have difficulty reporting the presence and severity of pain. This systematic literature review was conducted to determine the prevalence of pain, and the type and effectiveness of interventions that have been used to treat pain in residents of nursing homes. METHODS: Studies were identified by searching MEDLINE (from January 1966 to May 1997), HEALTH (from January 1975 to May 1997), CINAHL (from January 1982 to April 1997), AGELINE (from January 1978 to April 1997) and the Cochrane Library (1997, issue 1) and by performing a manual search of textbooks and reference lists. Studies of any methodological design were included if they estimated the prevalence of pain in nursing homes or other long-term care institutions or evaluated interventions for the treatment of pain in residents. Of the 14 eligible studies, 12 were noncomparative studies, 1 was a comparison study with nonrandomized contemporaneous controls, and 1 was a randomized controlled trial. Information on several factors was extracted from each study, including study design, number of patients and facilities, main outcomes measured, methods used to identify and detect pain, prevalence and types of pain, and interventions used to treat pain. The strength of the evidence provided by each study was also assessed. RESULTS: In the 6 studies with data from self-reporting or chart reviews, the prevalence of pain ranged from 49% to 83%. In the 5 studies with data on analgesic use only, the prevalence of pain ranged from 27% to 44%. Only 3 studies, with just 30 patients in total, evaluated an intervention for the treatment of pain. INTERPRETATION: Despite the high prevalence of pain in residents of nursing homes, there is a lack of studies evaluating interventions to relieve their pain. The authors make recommendations for future studies in this area.  (+info)

Pap screening clinics with native women in Skidegate, Haida Gwaii. Need for innovation. (2/1026)

PROBLEM ADDRESSED: First Nations women in British Columbia, especially elders, are underscreened for cancer of the cervix compared with the general population and are much more likely to die of the disease than other women. OBJECTIVE OF PROGRAM: To develop a pilot program, in consultation with community representatives, to address the Pap screening needs of First Nations women 40 years and older on a rural reserve. MAIN COMPONENTS OF PROGRAM: Identification of key links to the population; consultation with the community to design an outreach process; identification of underscreened women; implementation of community Pap screening clinics; evaluation of the pilot program. CONCLUSIONS: We developed a Pap screening outreach program that marked a departure from the usual screening approach in the community. First Nations community health representatives were key links for the process that involved family physicians and office staff at a local clinic on a rural reserve. Participation rate for the pilot program was 48%, resulting in an increase of 15% over the previously recorded screening rate for this population. More screening clinics of this type and evaluation for sustainability are proposed.  (+info)

The changing elderly population and future health care needs. (3/1026)

The impending growth of the elderly population requires both fiscal and substantive changes in Medicare and Medicaid that are responsive to cost issues and to changing patterns of need. More emphasis is required on chronic disease management, on meaningful integration between acute and long-term care services, and on improved coordination between Medicare and Medicaid initiatives. This paper reviews various trends, including the growth in managed-care approaches, experience with social health maintenance organizations and Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly demonstrations, and the need for a coherent long-term care policy. Such policies, however, transcend health care and require a broad range of community initiatives.  (+info)

Systematic review of day hospital care for elderly people. The Day Hospital Group. (4/1026)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effectiveness of day hospital attendance in prolonging independent living for elderly people. DESIGN: Systematic review of 12 controlled clinical trials (available by January 1997) comparing day hospital care with comprehensive care (five trials), domiciliary care (four trials), or no comprehensive care (three trials). SUBJECTS: 2867 elderly people. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Death, institutionalisation, disability, global "poor outcome," and use of resources. RESULTS: Overall, there was no significant difference between day hospitals and alternative services for death, disability, or use of resources. However, compared with subjects receiving no comprehensive care, patients attending day hospitals had a lower odds of death or "poor" outcome (0.72, 95% confidence interval 0.53 to 0.99; P<0.05) and functional deterioration (0.61, 0.38 to 0.97; P<0.05). The day hospital group showed trends towards reductions in hospital bed use and placement in institutional care. Eight trials reported treatment costs, six of which reported that day hospital attendance was more expensive than other care, although only two analyses took into account cost of long term care. CONCLUSIONS: Day hospital care seems to be an effective service for elderly people who need rehabilitation but may have no clear advantage over other comprehensive care. Methodological problems limit these conclusions, and further randomised trials are justifiable.  (+info)

Direct costs of coronary artery bypass grafting in patients aged 65 years or more and those under age 65. (5/1026)

BACKGROUND: Over the past 20 years, there have been marked increases in rates of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) among older people in Canada. The objectives of this study were to accurately estimate the direct medical costs of CABG in older patients (age 65 years or more) and to compare CABG costs for this age group with those for patients less than 65 years of age. METHODS: Direct medical costs were estimated from a sample of 205 older and 202 younger patients with triple-vessel or left main coronary artery disease who underwent isolated CABG at The Toronto Hospital, a tertiary care university-affiliated hospital, between Apr. 1, 1991, and Mar. 31, 1992. Costs are expressed in 1992 Canadian dollars from a third-party payer perspective. RESULTS: The mean costs of CABG in older and younger patients respectively were $16,500 and $15,600 for elective, uncomplicated cases, $23,200 and $19,200 for nonelective, uncomplicated cases, $29,200 and $20,300 for elective, complicated cases, and $33,600 and $23,700 for nonelective, complicated cases. Age remained a significant determinant of costs after adjustment for severity of heart disease and for comorbidity. Between 59% and 91% of the cost difference between older and younger patients was accounted for by higher intensive care unit and ward costs. INTERPRETATION: CABG was more costly in older people, especially in complicated cases, even after an attempt to adjust for severity of disease and comorbidity. Future studies should attempt to identify modifiable factors that contribute to longer intensive care and ward stays for older patients.  (+info)

A survey of attitudes and knowledge of geriatricians to driving in elderly patients. (6/1026)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the attitudes of consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society to elderly patients driving motor vehicles. DESIGN: An anonymous postal survey assessing knowledge and attitudes to driving in elderly people. A standardized questionnaire was used and five case histories were offered for interpretation. SETTING: The study was co-ordinated from a teaching hospital. SUBJECTS: The 709 consultant members of the British Geriatrics Society. Four hundred and eighteen responses were obtained, which represents a 59% response rate. RESULTS: 275 Respondents (68%) correctly realised that a person aged 70 had a duty to inform the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) about their eligibility to drive. The remainder did not. Most (315; 75%) believed that the overall responsibility for informing the DVLA was with the patient. If a patient was incapable of understanding advice on driving because of advanced dementia, 346 (83%) would breach patient confidentiality and inform the authority directly. Where a patient was fully capable of understanding medical advice but ignored it, 72% of geriatricians would have legitimately breached patient confidentiality and informed the DVLA. Most geriatricians (88%) saw their main role as one of providing advice on driving to patients and their families. Enforcing DVLA regulations was not seen as an appropriate function, unless the patient was a danger to themselves or other drivers. CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variation in knowledge of driving regulations and attitudes to driving in elderly patients. Better education of geriatricians should improve awareness of when elderly drivers can safely continue to drive.  (+info)

A national survey of health-service use in Thai elders. (7/1026)

OBJECTIVES: To examine the pattern of health-service use and associated factors among elderly people in Thailand. DESIGN: A cross-sectional multi-stage random sampling household survey. SUBJECTS: 4480 People aged 60 and over. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Responses to illness among elderly Thai subjects and health-service utilization. RESULTS: Of 1954 elderly Thai subjects who reported that they had had an illness without hospitalization during the last month, 93% had sought treatment and 7% did nothing. Just over a half (52.8%) used health services. Subjects who had self-limiting symptoms or diseases tended to not use health services, while subjects with chronic conditions did. Sixty-two percent paid for treatment themselves while 28% of them had their bills paid by their children. Independent determinants of health-service use included living in a rural area, being well-educated and better off, not drinking alcohol and the severity of illness identified. CONCLUSIONS: We found a low rate of state health-service use. Children had an important role in taking care of parents.  (+info)

Integrating healthcare for older populations. (8/1026)

The complex array of needs posed by older adults has frequently produced fragmentation of care in traditional fee-for-service systems. Integration of care components in newer health systems will maximize patient benefits and organizational efficiency. This article outlines the major issues involved in integration of care for older populations. A health system must integrate its care of older adults in many ways: among providers, both in primary care and specialty services; with community-based sources of care; and across sites of care (clinic, hospital, emergency department, and nursing home). Integrating reimbursement structures for various services will serve to create a client-oriented system, as opposed to a finance-centered system, thereby enhancing coordination of care. The extent to which two experimental comprehensive systems, PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care of the Elderly) and SHMO II (Social Health Maintenance Organization), have achieved clinical and financial integration are discussed in detail. Healthcare organizations are encouraged to create integrated models of care and to study the effects of integration on patient outcomes.  (+info)

Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals (1993) held that trial judges should permit expert scientific testimony only when the reasoning or methodology underlying
The purpose of our study was to perform a cost-utility analysis of preventive home visits from a societal perspective in Germany. The results of our analysis showed that this preventive home visit programme is unlikely to be cost-effective. The probability of cost-effectiveness increased with higher WTP but remained low (39% at a threshold of 250,000 EUR per QALY). There was only a 7% chance that the preventive home visit programme is dominant (i.e. less costly and more effective) as indicated by the probability of cost-effectiveness at a WTP of 0 EUR per QALY. The sensitivity analysis showed that the results were robust to the way (German EQ-5D index, EQ VAS) QALY were calculated. The probability of cost-effectiveness never exceeded a probability of 40%.. Our interpretation of the results is based on the results of the CEAC. The common approach is the use of the ICER to interpret results. Yet, this approach is prone to bias. The ICER does not control for baseline differences between ...
The aim of this thesis is to contribute to existing knowledge. If the knowledge is not useful in building society it has limited value. In order to be a tool for decision-makers, Preventive Home Visits (PHVs) are described and discussed according to a realist synthesis approach. The premise of this approach is that a single trial cannot tell the whole story and that understanding theoutcome pattern is much more important than seeking regularities in results across different trials. In order to understand the o utcome pattern, the PHV strategy in Nordmaling is examined against other trials and scientific work, and also in grey literature such as reports and workingpapers.. An increasing population of seniors means that resources for health and elderly care are being scrutinised in order to achieve the best possible health for the money invested. PHVs represent one strategy that attempts to promote health among independent seniors. This thesis is a multidisciplinary study aiming to gain knowledge ...
For 75 years, senior centers have maintained a rich and vital history as part of older adults continuum of care system, enhancing the physical and social well-being of participants, while delaying dependence. However, todays senior centers are at a crossroads stemming from complex challenges such as stagnant fiscal support, declining participant pools, and an increasingly diverse aging population. Consequently, senior centers ability to remain viable and sustainable organizations that serve older adults is in question. Guided by organizational learning theory and its emphasis on the relationship between organizational learning and performance, adaptability, and growth, this study examined senior centers as learning organizations. Watkins and Marsicks (1993, 1996) Dimensions of Learning Organizations Questionnaire (DLOQ) was used to evaluate the learning organization characteristics in senior centers and their relationship to organizational performance indicators. A cross-sectional, exploratory study

article{745ff721-92ca-426a-9749-e639c0247955, abstract = {The aim was to explore the relationship between health care utilization over 2 years and psychosocial variables measured at the end of this period in a sample of older people with high health care consumption. Sixty-three people aged 69-96 years were included in the study. Data were collected from two different registers covering health care utilization from 2004 to the end of 2008, and baseline data from an ongoing RCT. A cluster analysis (based on the health care utilization variables) was used to divide the sample into subgroups. The cluster analysis resulted in a two cluster and a three cluster solutions. The latter was found to be more appropriate because it more clearly discriminated between the groups regarding health care utilization and psychosocial variables. The three clusters were classified as high consumers (Cluster I), and low consumers (Clusters II and III). Cluster II seemed to be characterized by low outpatient but ...
The Montgomery County Board of County Commissioners created the Frail Elderly Task Force in November 2001 to examine current and emerging needs of people who are frail elderly and to develop a collaborative plan to ensure appropriate services and supports are made available. The Task Force focused on people who are frail and elderly, which are defined as persons who are 60 years of age and older who are at increased risk of death or functional decline.
People over the age of 65 (seniors) are the fastest growing demographic in Canada representing approximately 15% of the total national population in 2013 and expecting to grow to 24% by 2036 (Statistics Canada). The cost of caring for this seniors population is disproportionately high at 45% of the healthcare spending. A significant driver of this cost is frailty, the progressive physiological decline in function, cognition, and mobility accompanied by a loss of physiological reserve and increased vulnerability to disease and death (Moorhouse, 2012). The Palliative and Therapeutic Harmonization (PATH) model is an innovative approach to simplifying the process of caring for the frail elderly that is shown to produce a dramatic change in the cost of care and the quality of patient and family caregiver satisfaction with the healthcare system (Moorhouse, Mallery, 2012). The PATH model of care was developed by Drs. Mallery and Moorhouse who practice geriatric medicine at the QEII Hospital in ...

I have observed Purnima Sreenivasan in both the in-patient and out-patient setting and watched the results of her efforts first-hand with my mother. When mom broke her hip three years ago, Purnima Sreenivasan was instrumental in working with the orthopedic surgeon and the physical therapy group to help restore moms ability to walk, one of her favorite pastimes. From a fall and fracture that contributes to mortality for over 35% of patients (over 80 years old) in one year, and reduces mobility for over 65%, she helped mom back to walking three miles a day unassisted, a nearly unheard of result. Purnima Sreenivasan is a warm, engaging individual ...

The ACTION project uses information and communication technology to support frail elderly people and their family carers. The aims are to enhance their quality of life, independence and preparedness and to break social isolation. A videoconferencing system, connecting homes and a call centre, was used in a pilot study in 1997-2002. A re-designed system was brought into use in late 2004 and over 60 new units were introduced during the first six months. The new system was evaluated with an interview study and by data logging. Eight family users and four professional carers were interviewed. The family users had used the videophone at least six times and they had had the equipment at home for at least two months. The average number of initiated calls per user was 5.7 per month and the average call time per user was 40 min per month. Seven of the users (88%) reported that the system very much reduced their sense of loneliness and isolation. The results of the evaluation were encouraging. There were several

Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) can be considered a disease of the elderly, with a median age of diagnosis of 72 years. Surgery is the main treatment for colorectal cancer. As chronological age does not accurately reflect physiological reserves in the heterogeneous elderly population, it has been suggested that older cancer patients may benefit from a comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) before treatment decisions are made. A CGA is a systematic approach aiming to assess physical function, comorbidity, polypharmacy, nutritional status, cognitive function, and emotional status in older patients. Based on a CGA, patients may be divided into three groups: Fit, intermediate, or frail. Few prospective studies have investigated the associations between elements of a CGA and surgical outcomes in elderly patients. Furthermore, the definition of "frailty" derived from a CGA is controversial. In geriatric medicine, frailty is more commonly defined as a cluster of physical impairments (often called ...

Unsurprisingly, we found that case managers allocated the largest proportion of time to care coordination. In practice a large part of case managers daily activities is to frequently communicate and negotiate with care professionals, clients and families, and significant others, so as to coordinate right services at the right time for clients [16].. Contrary to the literature [10, 14, 15], we found that case managers allocated a higher proportion of time to monitoring and review (16.5 %) than needs assessment (12.5 %). In addition, the majority of case managers (over 70 %) assigned high frequency ratings to all five monitoring and review activities but not all needs assessment activities. Further research is needed to determine reasons for different findings identified by our study.. We found that case managers allocated the lowest proportion of time to outcome evaluation, and assigned lower frequency ratings to all four outcome evaluation activities compared with most other case management ...

The first years work at a new geriatric department at Northwick Park Hospital shows that active policies revolutionize the geriatric service and result in high turnover of patients and no waiting list. Comparison with low turnover/waiting list departments shows the effects of a waiting list in terms of diminished therapeutic benefit and less favourable outcome for patients admitted. The requirements for elimination of the waiting list appear to be well directed policies and adequate and enthusiastic staff. Active geriatrics results in high morale and could be widely applicable within the present hospital bed resources given the necessary improvements in staffing.. ...
In September 2013 we hosted a conference called Geriatrics for Juniors (G4J) - a series of lectures and interactive presentations covering the main subspecialty areas of Geriatric Medicine, providing practical and useful clinical updates to FY and CMT doctors, and showing them what a career as a Geriatrician has to offer.. Held at Centre for Life in Newcastle Upon Tyne, and supported by Health Education North East, the British Geriatrics Society, and the Royal College of Physicians (London) we welcomed over 100 delegates from throughout the UK.. The popularity of the event, along with the overwhelmingly positive feedback received, led us to turn the conference into an annual event. Supported by the British Geriatrics Society, the second Geriatrics for Juniors took place in Birmingham in November 2014, and was sold-out to an audience of 180 junior doctors. This was followed by further successful conferences in Leeds (2015) and Nottingham (2016).. For 2017, G4J will be returning to Newcastle ...

Geriatrics or geriatric medicine[1] is a sub-specialty of internal medicine and family medicine that focuses on health care of elderly people.[2] It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patients needs, and the availability of a specialist.

Evidence based medicine, clinical effectiveness, and performance indicators are the topics of the moment, but their applicability to frail elderly people in community and institutional settings is problematic because of insufficient relevant evidence. About 2-15% of the population aged over 65 of industrialised countries are residents in nursing homes and related facilities. These elderly people have multiple impairments and chronic diseases, features that generally exclude them from randomised controlled trials. There are, however, other methods that can be used to gather the evidence on which we can base our interventions for these older people.. Standardised assessment measures go beyond diagnosis to include physical and psychosocial function and must be included in an evaluation of health care for older people. The creation of databases containing such data in conjunction with data on treatments could begin to fill the gaps of missing evidence. 1 2 Under certain conditions and for certain ...

Severe symptomatic aortic stenosis is a serious condition of elderly, mostly geriatric patients with a poor prognosis if the valve is not replaced. Since geriatricians are able to provide major expertise in the prognostic assessment as well in the clinical management of these patients, they need to be more closely involved in the decision making process. For this reason the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS) represented by the authors phrased three propositions: (1) geriatricians need to be aware of the impact of severe aortic stenosis on patients outcomes and should be encouraged to take an active role in aortic stenosis management; (2) they need to be aware of treatment options and are required to support multidisciplinary teams with their expertise in assessing geriatric patients; (3) they should routinely perform a comprehensive geriatric assessment in patients with severe aortic stenosis scheduled to undergo surgical or transcatheter aortic valve replacement and during ...
