OBJECTIVES: To examine relationships between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), diabetes, and cardiovascular disease (CVD) among older men and women. METHODS: In a national retrospective cohort study of Veterans aged ≥55 (n=2,789,264, 6% female), associations between PTSD and diabetes (2008-2011) and incident CVD (2012-2015) were assessed with gender-stratified Fine-Gray proportional hazard models, adjusted for demographics and medical comorbidities. RESULTS: Incident CVD was observed in 22% of men and 12% of women, and related to PTSD (men HR=1...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate optimal cutoff scores and the effects of normative adjustments on the performance of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) as a screening instrument for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and dementia due to Alzheimer's disease (AD-dementia). METHODS: 499 adults 48 to 91 years-old enrolled in the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) and were administered the MoCA during baseline. Participants were classified as either cognitively normal (CN), MCI, or AD-dementia by clinical assessment...

BACKGROUND: Antipsychotic drugs are commonly used to treat psychosis in patients with Parkinson disease; however, individuals with parkinsonism are at risk for serious adverse effects with antipsychotic use. The choice of antipsychotic is critical. OBJECTIVE: To examine the frequency and pattern of antipsychotic prescribing to patients with Parkinson disease and parkinsonism over time. METHODS: Individuals with parkinsonism aged 66 or older in Ontario were studied in a retrospective cohort study from 2005-2013 and followed for prevalent and/or incident antipsychotic drug dispensing...

OBJECTIVE: Early follow-up after inpatient psychiatric hospitalization is a key part of the care transition process and has been found to reduce the risk of readmission and emergency department utilization. Our objective was to determine the extent to which hospital performance on measures of 7- and 30-day mental health follow-up after hospitalization for Medicare beneficiaries varies by hospital characteristics and hospital neighborhood socioeconomic characteristics. METHODS: We linked 2015 hospital-level follow-up rates from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Hospital Compare website to hospital characteristics obtained from the American Hospital Association Annual Survey and characteristics of the community within a 5-mile radius of the hospital obtained from the American Community Survey...

OBJECTIVE: Increasing understanding of the neurocognitive correlates of resilience in late-life depression (LLD) could inform interventions to promote more sustained remission. We investigated cross-sectional relations between baseline resilience and domains of neurocognitive functioning in depressed older adults enrolled in one of four trials. METHODS: Participants (N = 288) completed neurocognitive tests of memory, language performance, and executive functioning as well as measures of subjective memory performance and components of resilience (grit, active coping self-efficacy, accommodative coping self-efficacy, and spirituality)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Calmer Life (CL) improved worry, generalized anxiety disorder-related (GAD-related) symptoms, anxiety, depression, sleep, trauma-related symptoms, functional status, and quality of life better than Enhanced Community Care with Resource Counseling (ECC-RC) at 6 months and 9 months. METHODS: A randomized, controlled, comparative-effectiveness study involving underserved, low-income, mostly minority neighborhoods in Houston, Texas, looked at individuals ≥50 with significant worry and interest in psychosocial treatment...

Thomas E Oxman
The author experienced an unexpected finding over 30 years ago. Despite many losses, older primary care patients had less psychiatric symptomatology than younger patients. This has led to a long learning and teaching focus on the positive relationship between aging and wisdom. Some recent research challenges this relationship. To deal with this challenge the author reflects on two related but complex questions with which he has been struggling. Is there an adaptive value of aging? If wisdom is more likely with aging, why? He concludes that aging is culturally adaptive and that wisdom is aging's individual and societal adaptive strength...

OBJECTIVE: Low tri-iodothyronine (T3) syndrome is a predictor of poor prognosis in patients with stroke. Poststroke cognitive impairment (PSCI) is a common and important complication after stroke. The association between low T3 syndrome and PSCI is unclear. We aimed to explore the potential relationship between low T3 syndrome and PSCI in the acute phase of ischemic stroke at a 1-month follow-up visit. METHODS: In total, 314 ischemic stroke patients were consecutively enrolled in the study and followed up at 1 month...

OBJECTIVE: Gender differences in neurocognition, social skills, and negative symptoms, favoring women, have been documented among young/middle-aged adults with schizophrenia. However, gender differences have rarely been examined among older adults with schizophrenia, when decreases in circulating estrogens may impact outcomes among women. METHODS: Community-dwelling adults (N = 242, ages 40-85) with schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder completed assessments of negative symptoms (expressive and experiential deficits), neurocognition, and social skills...

Major depressive disorder in the elderly-or late-life depression (LLD)-is one of the most common mental illnesses in the aging population. LLD has several negative effects on health and well-being. Individuals with LLD have an elevated risk of chronic and persistent depressive symptoms as well as high rates of treatment resistance. They also have a higher risk of developing cognitive impairment with progression to dementia and higher rates of medical comorbidity, frailty, and mortality. The mechanisms linking LLD to these adverse health outcomes are not well understood...

OBJECTIVE: The number of individuals transitioning from correctional facilities to community in later life (age ≥50 ) is increasing. We sought to determine if later-life prison release is a risk factor for suicidal behavior and death by accidental injury, including drug overdose. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Medicare healthcare systems, 2012-2014. PARTICIPANTS: Veterans age ≥50 released from correctional facilities (N = 7,671 re-entry veterans) and those never incarcerated (N = 7,671)...
