The purpose of the current study was to determine the relationship between chronic condition symptoms and treatment burden in older adults transitioning from skilled nursing facilities to home. Treatment burden is defined as the burden associated with adhering to a prescribed chronic condition self-management regimen. Analysis of correlations between chronic condition symptoms and treatment burden revealed that symptoms and treatment burden are positively correlated (p < 0.05). Multivariate analysis (adjusted R2 = 0...

The aim of the current study was to report findings about delirium detection when ward nurses screened for delirium in patients with cognitive impairment using the Delirium Observation Screening Scale (DOSS) in comparison to the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM). A secondary analysis was performed of research data collected in 2010 at a Swiss tertiary university hospital. During the first 5 days after admission, patients 70 and older with cognitive impairment were screened for delirium using the DOSS. Throughout patients' hospital stay, research assistants also completed the CAM on a daily basis...

Hospitalized older adults are at high risk for complications, leading to negative outcomes such as longer lengths of stay, hospital readmissions, and functional and cognitive decline. Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) models are effective in mitigating these syndromes but are not widespread. Nurses with expertise in gerontology who can provide consultation and care coordination can improve care processes and clinical outcomes. This pilot study capitalized on the role of the geriatric nurse consultant (GNC) to develop, implement, and test the feasibility, acceptability, and utility of a GNC-led CGA...

To explore associations between older smokers' attitudes and beliefs about electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and tobacco use behavior, descriptive and correlational analysis of a cross-sectional survey of a random national sample of current smokers (age ≥45 years [considered "older" herein]) was performed. Of 498 older smokers, 75% wanted to quit smoking cigarettes and 60% had tried e-cigarettes. The 108 current e-cigarette users believed e-cigarettes help quit cigarettes (p < 0.001), are safer than cigarettes (p = 0...

Care plans guide and document achievement of short- and long-term goals. However, most care plans are discipline oriented, document medical problems, and lack person-centered information such as care preferences. The current authors' goal was to explore the status of comprehensive care plans and the future application of sharing data among health care providers and settings. Semi-structured interviews were conducted among a variety of professionals in six geographically diverse settings to learn the status and performance of care plans...

The current study examined and compared the effect of male and female older adults' participation level in leisure activities on their perceived health status, psychological well-being, levels of depression, levels of loneliness, and successful aging. A cross-sectional descriptive study design was used. Study participants comprised 197 older adults (women: n = 108, men: n = 89) ages 65 and older who were living in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. Measures were the perceived health status scale, Geriatric Depression Scale Short Form-Korea, psychological well-being scale, loneliness scale, and successful aging scale...

Disparities exist in the recognition and treatment of mental health issues among Hispanic community-dwelling older adults. Previous researchers have focused on accessing mental health services, with limited attention to older Hispanic immigrants' perceptions of mental health issues. A qualitative descriptive research design was used to understand older Hispanic immigrants' perceptions of mental health issues, especially those related to stress, anxiety, and depression. Seventeen older adults from the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Guatemala were interviewed...

The current study operationalized, assessed, and evaluated the feasibility and preliminary effects of implementing a person-centered approach to incontinence care for older adults with cognitive decline in residential care facilities (RCFs) in Sweden. Twenty health care workers were purposively sampled from two intervention RCFs. Process outcome was measured as number of assessments conducted for incontinence management. Impact outcome measures were quality of life, basal assessment of incontinence, incontinence actions taken, and personally chosen incontinence aids...

Diets high in fat increase the risks for obesity and chronic diseases, even for older adults, the largest growing population in the United States. In the current study, a meta-analysis was performed to examine the effects of motivational interviewing (MI) dietary interventions on fat consumption in older adults. Electronic databases, journals, and unpublished literature were searched. Six primary studies were retrieved, providing seven comparisons between intervention and control groups and a total of 1,351 participants...

Howard K Butcher, Todd N Ingram
Suicide is a tragic, traumatic loss, and one of the most emotionally devastating events families, friends, and communities experience. Suicide claims more than 800,000 lives every year, and some of the highest rates of suicide in the United States and globally are among older adults. The purpose of this evidence-based guideline is to help health care providers recognize those at risk for suicide and recommend appropriate and effective secondary suicide prevention interventions. The information in this guideline is intended for health care providers who work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, out-patient clinics, mental health clinics, home health care, and other long-term care facilities...

Falls in community-dwelling older adults are a complicated phenomenon that are attributed to sociodemographic characteristics, health conditions, functional problems, and environmental factors. The current cross-sectional and correlational study aimed to explore comprehensive risk factors for falls in community-dwelling older adults using a nationally representative data file (N = 5,930). Descriptive statistics were used and multiple logistic regression analyses were performed. Study findings showed that homebound or semi-homebound older adults were 50% more likely to experience a fall than non-homebound individuals...

The aim of the current study was to investigate the moderating effects of resilience on the relationship between emotional labor and burnout among care workers in long-term care (LTC) hospitals. Participants were 126 care workers from five different LTC hospitals in Busan, South Korea. A set of self-reported questionnaires was administered to assess general characteristics, emotional labor, resilience, and burnout of participants. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t tests, one-way analysis of variance, Pearson correlation coefficients, and hierarchical multiple regression...

Physical activity may decrease the risk of dementia; however, conflicting findings exist. The purpose of the current meta-analysis was to investigate the relationship between physical activity and dementia risk based on physical activity type, amount, and intensity, and to propose an effective minimal physical activity amount for older adults. Forty-four studies were selected for the meta-analysis. Participation in high (a total of >2 hours of activity over the course of three sessions per week) and moderate (a total of >1 hour of activity over the course of two sessions per week) amounts of physical activity showed decreased dementia risks compared to physical inactivity...

Inhaler administration for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be challenging, as it requires correct recall and execution of multiple steps. Older adults may have a higher risk of incorrectly administering inhalers versus the general population due to age-related visual, cognitive, and functional impairments. The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) 2018 report states that in addition to advanced age, use of multiple inhalers and lack of previous inhaler education can negatively impact technique...

Identifying older adults with heart failure at risk for hospital readmission is challenging, and risk prediction models may be improved with inclusion of telehealth factors. In the current study, demographic, clinical, telehealth, and use data for emergency department (ED) presentations, hospitalizations, and length of stay (LOS) were collected from the records of 187 Veterans with heart failure participating in a 90-day Care Coordination Home Telehealth program between September 2007 and September 2013. Heart failure-related ED visits were 17...
