REVIEW
Christian Jagsch, Alex Hofer
BACKGROUND: The number of people with diseases of the schizophrenia spectrum in old age will increase significantly in the coming years. In the literature the topics of schizophrenia and delusional disorders in older and old people are inadequately represented. AIM: This article gives an overview of the most important diagnostic and differential diagnostic characteristics. Another important aspect is the pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options in old age...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is little information about the desired place of death of nursing home residents because they are usually not interviewed in population-based representative surveys. In preparation of support services for advance care planning the kind of care and support that nursing home residents desire needs to be systematically determined. METHOD: From October 2016 to January 2017 the residents of 5 nursing homes, municipally owned by Würzburg, were interviewed face-to-face...

BACKGROUND: Demographic changes result in a higher prevalence of patients suffering from dementia in hospital. In Germany, epidemiological data of this target group are scarce and prevalence rates from university hospitals (UH) are not available. The prevalence rates and distribution were analyzed on the basis of ICD-10-GM (German modification) routine data METHOD: A secondary analysis on ICD-10-GM main and secondary diagnoses of dementia from 2014 and 2015 from 5 UH was performed. All patients admitted to hospital for at least 24 h and ≥18 years old (2014 n = 187,168; 2015 n = 189,040) were included...

BACKGROUND: Specific training reduces the risk of falls and fall-related injuries in older persons. The availability of specific exercise programs in Germany, especially in rural areas is scarce. Therefore, a healthcare fund driven program osteoporotic fracture prevention program in rural areas (OFRA) (German name: "Trittsicher durchs Leben") was implemented in rural areas in 47 counties of 5 federal states. The most important components of the program are the "Trittsicher" mobility course and falls prevention classes organized by members of the German Association of Rural Women and executed by exercise instructors of the German Gymnastics Association or physiotherapists...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Increasing numbers of cognitively impaired older persons are admitted for inpatient hospital treatment. Therefore, new approaches are needed to prevent a loss of mobility during hospital stays and improve outcomes of this vulnerable patient group. The lifestyle integrated functional exercise (LiFE) concept uses activities of daily living (ADL) situations as opportunities to improve balance and strength. A pilot study was performed to test the feasibility and acceptability of the LiFE exercises in a geriatric rehabilitation setting...

OBJECTIVE: Multimorbidity is an increasing challenge in geriatric medicine, also in psychiatric patients. The question arises where an adequate treatment should be carried out. METHODS: This exploratory study was part of the Gerontopsychiatry study Berlin (Gepsy-B), an investigation of all admissions of older inpatients (>65 years) to a psychiatric hospital within 3 years. A total of 1266 admissions to a hospital in Berlin could be analyzed. RESULTS: Of the patients primarily admitted to the psychiatric department, 17...

BACKGROUND: Projections revealed that the age group of 60+ years will increase to 1.4 billion people worldwide by 2030. Germany is affected by the demographic change with an increase in people suffering from dementia and a substantial proportion will be cared for by informal caregivers. Quality of life (QOL) is of utmost importance for the stability of domestic care arrangements. OBJECTIVES: This review aimed at collecting and analyzing articles on the association between burden of care and QOL in older informal caregivers of people with dementia...

REVIEW
Martina Hasseler
Against the background of the quality debates on long-term care and recurrent reform measures in politics on this topic, a critical discussion on the current state of quality development, testing and reporting in Germany is presented. In Germany, the linear model of Donabedian's structural, process and outcome quality is still used as a basis for quality issues in nursing care; however, international research suggests that multiple and mutually interacting factors influence nursing quality and that a more systematic and systemic perspective for the further development of nursing quality (especially of features, criteria and indicators of nursing quality) appears more appropriate...

BACKGROUND: Because of demographic changes the nursing care sector is faced with a lack of qualified employees in the medium and long term. The shortage in the work force is caused by high workloads and unfavorable working conditions. In response to this shortage, there have been attempts to recruit qualified nursing staff from abroad and also to improve the integration of people with a migration background living in Germany into the job market. METHODOLOGY: Based on a quantitative cross-sectional study of 366 nurses, the psychosocial burden and strains among employees with a migration background (n = 112) and without a migration background (n = 254) were examined...

BACKGROUND: Weak relationships result in feelings of belonging to a social neighborhood, as can be found in retirement communities. OBJECTIVE: This article analyzes spatial arrangements and the registered rules for furnishings with respect to their potential to facilitate communitization processes and explain their modes of action as potential third places. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study took place in an American Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)...

Katharina Pils
Proximal femoral fractures in old age are known as fragility fractures. They are the sequelae of osteoporosis and an expression of a general reduced capacity and an increase in sensory and functional deficits against the background of multimorbidity. They are often caused by reduced compensation strategies. Simultaneously, for many older people they represent a life event. Despite modern osteosynthesis techniques and less stressful anesthesia procedures, the occurrence of a proximal femoral fracture shakes the labile equilibrium of those affected...
