RESUMO

Telehealth can effectively increase access to specialist care and reduce the need for travel. The Geri-Connect service was established in 2017 to support people living in residential aged care facilities in regional Victoria, Australia. Using the Model for the Assessment of Telemedicine, an evaluation of the Geri-Connect service identified service activity patterns and factors associated with uptake. Service activity from 2017 to 2020 and 10 semi-structured, key stakeholder interviews were captured and analysed. Between 2017 and 2020, video consultations were provided to 53 residential aged care facilities. Sustained growth (over 178%) and strong stakeholder acceptance highlight the effectiveness of this telegeriatric service. Four recommendations provide opportunities to further enhance service delivery including: implementation of an integrated health information system; systematic evaluation of service impact on stakeholders and residents, auditing and subsequent provision of targeted training; and regular auditing of software and hardware. Additionally, the need to augment fixed room hardware with mobile telehealth systems would increase access for residents with mobility problems. Dedicated personnel of the centralised team are best suited to implementing the recommendations. Whilst the provision of routine telehealth services into residential aged care facilities is challenging, the Geri-Connect service demonstrates that telehealth can be effectively provided to residential aged care facility residents needing specialist geriatric care.

RESUMO

The increasing life expectancy, the earlier detection of terminal illnesses and the increasing complexity of care pathways led us to propose an innovative response within the Neuchâtel Hospital Network (RHNe), in the form of a mixed intra-hospital mobile team (GSPmob), composed of doctors and nurses from geriatrics and palliative care. Through geriatric and palliative assessment, we are able to highlight the patient's different medical problems. Our team, after two years of existence, has met our patients' needs as well as the hospital teams' needs. And yet we encountered certain challenges. Our current objective is to describe our experience by presenting our results and difficulties.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Improving the care of older adults in our healthcare system involves teams working together. As the geriatrics population rises globally, health science learners need to be prepared to work collaboratively to recognize and treat common conditions in geriatrics. To enable workforce preparation, the Institute of Medicine and the National League for Nursing emphasize the need to implement interprofessional active learning activities for undergraduate healthcare learners at academic medical centers. METHODS: The Geriatrics Champions Program was a team-based learning activity created to meet this task. It was a 24-month program, repeated twice, that impacted 768 learners and 151 faculty from medicine, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nursing, social welfare, psychology, pharmacy and dietetics. Each class was intentionally divided into 20 interprofessional teams that met four times annually. Each session focused on one geriatrics domain. The objectives were centered around the specific geriatrics competencies for each health profession, divided into the eight domains written in the "American Geriatrics Society IM-FM Residency Competencies". Evaluation consisted of individual and team Readiness Assessment Tests (iRAT and tRAT). Surveys were also used to collect feedback using a Likert scale. Wilcoxon signed rank tests were used to compare iRAT and tRAT scores. Other analyses identified characteristics associated with tRAT performance group (Unpaired t-tests) and tRAT performance on the raw scale (Pearson correlation). Paired t-tests using a 7-level Likert Scale measured pre-post change in learner knowledge. RESULTS: Student tRAT scores were 30% higher than iRAT scores (p < 0.001). Teams were more likely to score 100% on the initial tRAT attempt if more team members attended the current session (p < 0.001), more health professions were represented by team members in attendance (p = 0.053), and the team had a better track record of past attendance (p < 0.01). In the post-program evaluation, learners felt this program was helpful for their career preparation in interprofessional geriatrics care. CONCLUSIONS: Learners understood that teams performed better than individuals in the care of older adults. Feedback from the learners and faculty was consistently positive and learners felt better prepared for geriatrics care. The program's benefits may extend beyond individual sessions.

RESUMO

Assessing and addressing social determinants of health can improve health outcomes of older adults. The Nebraska Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program implemented a primary care liaison (PCL) model of care, including training primary care staff to assess and address unmet social needs, patient counseling to identify unmet needs, and mapping referral services through cross-sectoral partnerships. A PCL worked with three patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) that are part of a large integrative health system. A mixed-methods approach using a post-training survey and a patient tracking tool, was used to understand the reach, adoption, and implementation of the PCL model. From June 2020 to May 2021, the PCL trained 61 primary care staff to assess and address unmet social needs of older patients. A total of 327 patients, aged 65 years and older and within 3-5 days of acute-care hospital discharges, were counseled by the PCL. For patients with unmet needs, support services were arranged through community agencies: transportation (37%), in-home care (33%), food (16%), caregiver support (2%), legal (16%), and other (16%). Our preliminary results suggest that the PCL model is feasible and implementable within PCMH settings to address unmet social needs of older patients to improve their health outcomes.

RESUMO

Gerontological literature has widely explored barriers to technology use in later life, often drawing upon binary conceptualizations of "using" and "not using" a certain technological device. However, such concepts have been increasingly up for debate. Using a praxeological approach, this study aims to explore technology use and non-use in later life not as dichotomous counterparts, but as routine experiences that take place in the everyday lives of older adults, asking: Which technology practices that go beyond using and not using a certain device can be found in the everyday lives of older non-users? How are these practices related to experiences of age and aging? The paper draws upon data from 15 semi-structured interviews with older adults (65+) in Austria, who self-identify as 'non-users' of digital technologies. Data was analyzed using thematic coding (Flick, 2016) and revealed that while interviewees saw themselves as "non-users" of digital technologies, they all regularly engaged with digital technologies in their daily lives. These manifold everyday engagements with digital technologies can be summarized as four bundles of technology practices: (1) avoidance practices, (2) usage practices, (3) appropriation practices, and (4) subjectivation practices. Non-users regularly engaged in and transitioned between these practice bundles. Not using digital technologies therefore emerged as an ambivalent, everyday experience, rather than an actual practice pattern that can be measured using binary categories of 'use' and 'non-use'. By understanding the use and non-use of digital technologies in later life not as binary counterparts, but as an active process of doing, this paper highlights how the use and non-use of digital technologies is not a rational decision, but rather an ensemble of avoidance, usage, and appropriation practices that older adults experience and negotiate in their everyday lives. This paper therefore suggests moving away from technology use and non-use as central concepts for studying technology in later life, and instead questioning which practices are valued as a 'right' or 'real' way of using digital technologies, and which are devalued as 'wrong' usage.

RESUMO

Geriatric epidemiology deals with the application of epidemiological techniques to study the distribution and prevention of health status, diseases, and risk factors among the elderly, to develop intervention measures for promoting healthy ageing. The ageing of the population is a gradually developed phenomenon that is accelerating in China, geriatric epidemiology is one of the important branches of epidemiology and the major pillars of geriatric preventive medicine that play an important role in disease prevention and health promotion. In this article, we reviewed the recent Chinese studies in geriatric epidemiology, and synthesized the distributions and determinants of health-related status in Chinese elderly, and finally highlighted the future trends and expectations of the geriatric epidemiological research.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Emergency physicians (EPs) provide care to older adults with complex health problems. Treating these patients is challenging for many EPs, which might originate from modest geriatric education. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to assess EPs' self-perceived needs regarding geriatric emergency medicine (GEM) education, factors determining these needs and the utilization of this education. Our secondary aim was to assess emergency department (ED) managers' view and support for GEM education. METHODS: All EPs and ED managers in the Netherlands received a survey by e-mail. The questionnaires focused on EPs' needs in GEM education, EPs' utilization of GEM education and managerial support for GEM education. We used descriptive statistics to analyse needs, utilization of- and support for GEM education. Regression analyses were used to identify factors associated with EPs' need for GEM education. RESULTS: EPs reported to need better training in diagnosing, treating and communicating with older adults. Seventy percent of EPs reported no GEM education program in their hospital, and 83% reported no utilization of GEM education outside their hospital. EPs working in EDs with a possibility for geriatric consultation, and EPs aware of actual GEM education programs, had lower educational needs. Of responding managers, 86.2% reported the care for older adults as an important topic; lack of finances and time were obstacles to provide GEM education for EPs. CONCLUSION: EPs in the Netherlands feel insufficiently educated to treat older adults. ED managers largely recognize this educational challenge. This nationwide survey underlines the need to prioritize GEM education for EPs.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Geriatric medicine is an emerging subspecialty in Nigeria. The interest in the care of older Nigerians followed the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing in April 2002. This led to an increase in research, publications and advocacy culminating in the establishment of the pioneer geriatric centre in Nigeria in 2012. Since then, there has been an increase in capacity building, manpower development and institutionalization of geriatric care in Nigeria. This is an account of the evolution of the Chief Tony Anenih Geriatric Centre, University College Hospital, Ibadan (UCH). METHODS: We undertook the review of the history, structure and key service elements in the Geriatric Centre, UCH from January 1, 2013, to December 31, 2020. RESULTS: The number of patients rose from 2,559 in the first year to 19,300 by the end of 2020. The initial four multidisciplinary units increased to 12 over the review period. Likewise, the in-patient admission increased between the first year (122 patients) and 2020 (141 patients). The overall mortality rate was 11.4% over the review period. Internship opportunities were provided to students including resident doctors, undergraduates (medical) and postgraduate students (Masters and PhD). Besides, 139 medical doctors have undergone the annual basic certificate training in geriatric medicine organised by the Centre. Also, 7 fellowship dissertations and 11 peer-reviewed papers have been published. CONCLUSION: The centre has demonstrated the possibility of caring for older patients in a low-resource setting. The employment of the multidisciplinary approach yielded a low mortality rate, higher attendance and manpower development.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Age has been implicated as the main risk factor for COVID-19-related mortality. Our objective was to utilize administrative data to build an explanatory model accounting for geriatrics-focused indicators to predict mortality in hospitalized older adults with COVID-19. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of adults age 65 and older (N = 4783) hospitalized with COVID-19 in the greater New York metropolitan area between 3/1/20-4/20/20. Data included patient demographics and clinical presentation. Stepwise logistic regression with Akaike Information Criterion minimization was used. RESULTS: The average age was 77.4 (SD = 8.4), 55.9% were male, 20.3% were African American, and 15.0% were Hispanic. In multivariable analysis, male sex (adjusted odds ration (adjOR) = 1.06, 95% CI:1.03-1.09); Asian race (adjOR = 1.08, CI:1.03-1.13); history of chronic kidney disease (adjOR = 1.05, CI:1.01-1.09) and interstitial lung disease (adjOR = 1.35, CI:1.28-1.42); low or normal body mass index (adjOR:1.03, CI:1.00-1.07); higher comorbidity index (adjOR = 1.01, CI:1.01-1.02); admission from a facility (adjOR = 1.14, CI:1.09-1.20); and mechanical ventilation (adjOR = 1.52, CI:1.43-1.62) were associated with mortality. While age was not an independent predictor of mortality, increasing age (centered at 65) interacted with hypertension (adjOR = 1.02, CI:0.98-1.07, reducing by a factor of 0.96 every 10 years); early Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR, life-sustaining treatment preferences) (adjOR = 1.38, CI:1.22-1.57, reducing by a factor of 0.92 every 10 years); and severe illness on admission (at 65, adjOR = 1.47, CI:1.40-1.54, reducing by a factor of 0.96 every 10 years). CONCLUSION: Our findings highlight that residence prior to admission, early DNR, and acute illness severity are important predictors of mortality in hospitalized older adults with COVID-19. Readily available administrative geriatrics-focused indicators that go beyond age can be utilized when considering prognosis.

RESUMO

Objective - to substantiate the identification of a new direction in forensic medicine - forensic gerontology. A statistical analysis of the structure of forensic medical research of corpses in terms of age for a twenty-year period has been carried out. The data on the features of the expert assessment of injuries in old age taking into account geriatric syndromes and aging syndromes have been analyzed. The features and difficulties of postmortem diagnosis among persons aged 75+ in cases of nonviolent death were assessed and a significant disproportion in the structure of morbidity with pathology detected during autopsy was noted. The data obtained made it possible to substantiate the selection of a new direction of forensic science and outline the prospects for research in this area.

RESUMO

Recommendations for the Diagnosis and Therapy of Psychotic Disorders in the Elderly Abstract. Psychotic disorders in the elderly cover a wide range of causes and manifestations. They often occur as part of a depression, dementia, substance abuse or delirium. While psychosis can occur with a first manifestation in advanced age, many patients with chronic psychotic disorders reach a high age. Many elderly individuals are also affected by cognitive impairment and somatic conditions, making a third-party history most relevant. The associated changes in life and the complexity of the individual situation needs to be integrated into the diagnosis and treatment. The presented recommendations have been developed under the lead of the Swiss Society of Old Age Psychiatry (SGAP) in collaboration with the Swiss Association of Nurses (SBK) and the subcommittees for gerontological and psychiatric nursing of the association of nursing science (VFP) as well as further professional societies. We aim to make current knowledge concerning diagnosis and treatment available to the interprofessional teams working in in- and outpatients' settings.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to inform the development of a Community Geriatrics Service (CGS) that addressed the healthcare and social needs of community dwelling older people in an Australian context. METHODS: Stakeholders (N = 108) took part in a 'needs assessment' involving 30-min semi-structured interviews with general practitioners (GPs; N = 49), and three 2-h focus groups (community engagement meetings; N = 59) with older people, informal caregivers, allied healthcare workers, and nursing home directors. Data were transcribed and thematically coded, mapped to source and weighted to the frequency that the theme was raised across sources. RESULTS: Five themes informing CGS development and delivery emerged: active health conditions (management of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia, falls, multimorbidity, and other relevant conditions), active social challenges (patient non-compliance, need for aged care social workers, caregiver stress, elder abuse, social isolation, and stigma), referrals (availability of specialists, communication, specialist input, and advance care directives), access (lack of transport options, and inaccessibility of local geriatrics clinics and specialists), and awareness (lack of awareness, knowledge, and resources). CONCLUSIONS: The CGS will need to address access, referral processes and health system navigation, which were perceived by stakeholders as significant challenges. These findings warrant the development of a CGS with an integrated approach to aged care, pertinent for the health and social needs of the elderly.

RESUMO

AIM: The present study evaluated whether or not post-graduation lectures on gerontology were useful for university students. METHODS: To survey the opinions of graduated students, a questionnaire was sent to students who had graduated from the Department of Occupational Therapy (students in the Department of Physical Therapy were subjects for selection) asking whether or not the lectures on gerontology had been useful. Responses were obtained from 58 out of 511 graduates. RESULTS: One graduate (1.7%) found the gerontology lectures very useful, 30 (51.7%) found them useful, 26 (44.8%) found them not very useful, and 1 (1.7%) found them not useful at all. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that we should deliver more detailed lectures on why gerontology is needed and revise the contents to be more concrete and skillful than before.

RESUMO

Different staffing configurations in primary and geriatric care practices could have implications for how best to deliver services that are essential for a growing population of older adults. Using data from a 2018 survey of physicians (MDs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) working in primary and geriatric care, we assessed whether different configurations were associated with better or worse performance on a number of standard process measures indicative of comprehensive, high-quality primary care. Practices with a large concentration of MDs had the highest estimated labor costs. Practices high in NPs and physician assistants (PAs) were most common in states that grant full scope of practice to NPs. The high-NP/PA configuration was associated with a 17-percentage-point greater probability of facilitating patient visits and a 26-percentage-point greater probability of providing the full bundle of primary care services compared with the high-MD model. Team-based configurations had a 27.7-percentage-point greater probability of providing the full bundle of primary care services. The complex needs of older adults may be best served by team-based practices with a broad provider mix that can provide a range of services in the office and the community.

RESUMO

ABSTRACT: Pulmonary infection is common in patients with heart failure, yet the risk factors remain unclear. We aimed to evaluate the clinical characteristics and risk factors of pulmonary infection in elderly patients with heart failure, to provide reference to the prevention of pulmonary infection.This study was a retrospective study design. We included elderly heart failure patient admitted to our hospital from April 1, 2018 to August 31, 2020. The characteristics and clinical data of pulmonary infection and no infection patients were assessed. Logistic regression analyses were conducted to identify the risk factors of pulmonary infections in patients with heart failure.A total of 201 patients were included. The incidence of pulmonary infection in patients with heart failure was 23.88%. There were significant differences in the age, diabetes, New York Heart Association (NYHA) grade, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), C-reactive protein (CRP) between infection and no infection group (all P < .05), and there were not differences in the sex, body mass index, alcohol drinking, smoking, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, length of hospital stay between 2 groups (all P > .05). Logistic regression analyses indicated that age ≥70 years, diabetes, NYHA grade III, LVEF ≤55%, and CRP ≥10 mg/L were the independent risk factors of pulmonary infections in patients with heart failure (all P < .05). Pseudomonas aeruginosa (34.48%), Staphylococcus aureus (19.57%), and Klebsiella pneumoniae (15.22%) were the most common 3 pathogens in patients with pulmonary infection.Heart failure patients with age ≥70 years, diabetes, NYHA grade III, LVEF ≤55%, and CRP ≥10 mg/L have higher risks of pulmonary infections, preventive measures targeted on those risk factors are needed to reduce pulmonary infections.

RESUMO

RESUMEN Fundamento: el envejecimiento poblacional caracteriza la sociedad cubana actual, por lo que se hace necesario promover acciones educativas para este grupo etario. Objetivo: elaborar una intervención educativa comunitaria que contribuya a un envejecimiento activo y con calidad de vida en los adultos mayores del Consejo Popular Falcón-Miller. Métodos: se realizó una investigación acción-participación en el Consejo Popular Falcón Miller, del municipio Placetas, Villa Clara, Cuba, entre septiembre 2019-junio 2020. Se emplearon métodos teóricos: histórico-lógico, análisis-síntesis e inductivo-deductivo; empíricos: análisis documental, entrevista a dirigentes locales y cuestionario a adultos mayores; y matemático-estadísticos, para los valores absolutos y relativos. Resultados: se diagnosticaron potencialidades y carencias en el consejo popular para fortalecer la calidad de vida en los adultos mayores que residen en la demarcación, y las necesidades de capacitación de algunos dirigentes locales, por lo que se elaboró una intervención educativa que responde a indicadores de salud, seguridad, participación, información y conocimientos de este grupo social en los diversos ámbitos. Fue valorada por criterios de especialistas. Conclusiones: el sistema de acciones propuesto en la intervención educativa es variado desde una concepción terapéutica, de capacitación y promoción de salud. Está dirigido a estimular la participación y a socializar conocimientos respecto a temáticas importantes para los adultos mayores, a la deconstrucción de estereotipos de vejez, así como a potenciar actividades educativas y de comunicación para aprender a convivir en un ambiente intergeneracional. Fue valorado como muy adecuado para su aplicación por los especialistas.


ABSTRACT Background: population aging characterizes current Cuban society, so it is necessary to promote educational actions for this age group. Objective: to develop a community educational intervention that contributes to active and life quality aging in the elderly of the Falcón-Miller People´s Council. Methods: an action-participation investigation was carried out in the Falcón Miller People´s Council, of the Placetas municipality, Villa Clara, Cuba, from September 2019 to June 2020. Theoretical methods were used: historical-logical, analysis-synthesis and inductive-deductive; empirical: documentary analysis, interview with local leaders and questionnaire for the elderly; and mathematical-statistical, for absolute and relative values. Results: potentialities and shortcomings were diagnosed in the People´s council to strengthen the quality of life in the elderly residing in the demarcation, and the training needs of some local leaders, for which an educational intervention was developed that responds to indicators of health, safety, participation, information and knowledge of this social group in the various fields. It was evaluated by criteria of specialists. Conclusions: the system of actions proposed in the educational intervention is varied from a therapeutic, training and health promotion concept. It is aimed at stimulating participation and socializing knowledge regarding important issues for the elderly, deconstructing old age stereotypes, as well as promoting educational and communication activities to learn to live together in an intergenerational environment. It was valued as very suitable for its application by the specialists.
