BACKGROUND: The MINDMAP consortium (2016-2019) aims to identify opportunities provided by the urban environment for the promotion of mental well-being and functioning of older people in Europe by bringing together European cities with urban longitudinal ageing studies: GLOBE, HAPIEE, HUNT, LASA, LUCAS, RECORD, Rotterdam Study, Turin Study. A survey on mental healthcare planning policies and programmes dedicated to older persons covering the range from health promotion to need of nursing care was performed for profound data interpretation in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Hamburg, Helsinki, Kaunas, Krakow, London, Nord-Trøndelag, Paris, Prague, Rotterdam and Turin...

BACKGROUND: Routine screening for frailty could be used to timely identify older people with increased vulnerability und corresponding medical needs. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was the translation and cross-cultural adaptation of the PRISMA-7 questionnaire, the FRAIL scale and the Groningen Frailty Indicator (GFI) into the German language as well as a preliminary analysis of the diagnostic test accuracy of these instruments used to screen for frailty. METHODS: A diagnostic cross-sectional study was performed...

The neuronal structures for the regulation of sleep and wakefulness are located in the brain. This complex network is vulnerable to numerous factors, most importantly neurodegenerative diseases and drugs. The macrostructure and microstructure of sleep change with age. These changes are more pronounced in subjects with dementia. Sleep disorders in subjects with dementia may be independent of dementia or caused by dementia. Furthermore, epidemiological studies reveal that sleep disorders per se may induce dementia by reduction of cerebral clearance of beta-amyloids...

REVIEW

The number of older people with polypharmacy (more than six drugs taken simultaneously) is increasing. The greatest proportion consists of guideline drugs, analgesics and psychopharmaceuticals because in many cases of geriatric multimorbidity several underlying main diseases are present which must be treated according to the guidelines. Polypharmacy is a complex and difficult situation for all treating physicians because substantial side effects and intoxication can be induced but it can also be very difficult to recognize which drug was at fault and how a reduction can be safely made...

BACKGROUND: Utilization of outpatient emergency services by nursing home residents is increasing; however, out of hours medical care (OOHC) in Germany has not yet been studied. OBJECTIVE: In Bremen the used billing codes enabled a comparison between the use of outpatient emergency care in the year before and the year after admission to a nursing home stratified by emergency departments and OOHC. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study we used insurance claims data of residents in Bremen, who were insured in a large German statutory health insurance (DAK-Gesundheit)...

REVIEW
G F Kolb
This article examines the question whether and how geriatrics will change in the future and whether in view of the demographic changes the trend will go more in the direction of a further expansion of geriatrics or more towards a geriatricization of individual specialist medical fields. The different development of geriatrics in the individual Federal States can only be understood historically and is absolutely problematic against the background of the new hospital remuneration system. Geriatrics is a typical cross-sectional faculty and still has demarcation problems with other faculties but has also not yet clearly defined the core competence...

Janina Frank, Birgit Babitsch
BACKGROUND: The ageing population raises the question whether there is a compression or expansion of morbidity. OBJECTIVE: This study examined the development of morbidity and the associated outpatient volume of services in outpatient healthcare. MATERIAL AND METHODS: With a nationwide sample of statutory health insurance patients, the development of the documented morbidity and outpatient volume of services of the generation 65plus was empirically examined by a retrospective, cohort-specific study based on outpatient claims data covering the years 2007 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: It can be assumed that the feeling of gait stability or gait instability in the elderly may be independent of a possible fear of falling or a history of falling when walking. Up to now, there has been a lack of spatiotemporal gait parameters for older people who subjectively feel secure when walking. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to analyse the distribution of various gait parameters for older people who subjectively feel secure when walking. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a cross-sectional study, the gait parameters stride time, step time, stride length, step length, double support, single support, and walking speed were measured using a Vicon three-dimensional motion capture system (Plug-In Gait Lower-Body Marker Set) in 31 healthy people aged 65 years and older (mean age 72 ± 3...

REVIEW
Andreas Kruse, Adelheid Kuhlmey, Gerhard Naegele
In the first part of this article a comprehensive understanding of political advice is explicated. In this context reference is made to the value judgement dispute in German sociology and a differentiation between an enlightening and a critical function of scientific policy advice. Development of social scientific policy advice is considered against the background of the distinction between technocratic, decisionistic and pragmatic models of counseling. In the second part of the article, the committee of inquiry on demographic change, the national reports on aging and the reviews on the development of the healthcare system are considered as practical examples of policy advice...

Falls in older adults are a major public health problem with a high incidence and severe consequences for the older individual. The age-related loss of muscle strength as well as muscle mass and muscle function (sarcopenia) are i) risk factors for falling, ii) associated with physical function and iii) markers of the frailty syndrome. Muscle function appears to play a bigger role than muscle mass. The operationalization of sarcopenia using the European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People (EWGSOP) algorithm is consistently associated with falling events...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral blood dyscrasias in older patients are repeatedly seen in geriatric clinical practice; however, there is substantial lack of data about the epidemiology, possible causes and treatment options in this patient group. Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are extensively used in older patients and associated with leukopenia. The primary objective of this study was the assessment of encoded cytopenia prevalence in a geriatric patient cohort and the secondary objective was the assessment of putative causes and the analysis of PPI administration in patients with cytopenia...

BACKGROUND: Gait stability during dual tasks is important for elderly persons, especially for elderly individuals in need of care. A study was conducted to assess gait stability by using Lyapunov exponents (λS) during single task and dual task conditions in independently living elderly people (Go-Goes) and elderly people in need of care (No-Goes). MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study was conducted with 26 participants (average age 82 ± 9.4 years) who were allocated to the Go-Goes or No-Goes group...

Medical practitioners commonly do not have much knowledge of the professional side of social workers, even those that work together in a geriatric team. The current article aims to further this knowledge and to show that the potentials of social work support may exceed administration, as well as in the consultation of patients by so-called social workers in hospitals. These potentials are not empirically reasoned, instead social pedagogic theories are used for support of this argument. Three theories will be introduced as examples and furthermore, the possible meaning this has for geriatric medicine will be explained by means of a case example...

BACKGROUND: The interdisciplinary healthcare treatment of the elderly needs to consider their complex needs. There is a need for new structures of care to be tested, as in the model project regional geriatric care (RVG) concept. The aim is to qualitatively improve the treatment of elderly, multimorbid people by the implementation of case management and therefore to promote living in their own home and avoidance of the necessity for care. OBJECTIVE: How can the quality of care of a geriatric care concept be measured and the benefits for the target group be evaluated? MATERIALS AND METHODS: The explorative evaluation study reports patient outcomes for n = 380 participants who underwent geriatric assessment at the beginning of the intervention and again 12 months later...
