BACKGROUND: With most forms of dementia, the risk of road traffic accidents increases with disease progression. Addressing the issue of fitness to drive at an early stage can help to reduce driving-related risks and simultaneously preserve mobility. General practitioners (GPs) are central contact persons for dementia patients and their relatives in medical and psychosocial matters, and also play a key role in addressing the issue of driving safety. OBJECTIVE: Identification of relevant aspects of managing fitness to drive in dementia, as well as of support requirements for German general practice...

BACKGROUND: In recent years, politics and society have shown an increasing interest in the prevention of violence. Despite the scientific studies and prevention programs that have been conducted over the past few years, there is no indication that the prevalence of violence in elderly care is falling. A high number of unreported cases may still be assumed. OBJECTIVE: The present study examined the barriers in transferring research knowledge into practice. Furthermore, it dealt with the requirements of an interventional approach which is practical and which effectively addresses the barriers...

REVIEW
W Weinrebe, A Moutaouakil, K Risz, M Martin, K Jeckelmann, S Goetz
A case study of an 89-year-old patient is reported, who was admitted to hospital because of immobility due to pain. After the cause of the pain could initially be clarified and treated, the further clinical course in this very old woman showed an alarming symptom complex of agitation, confusion and cognitive deterioration, which took on grave forms. The work-up of this case showed a typical constellation of pain and depression in old age; however, the pharmaceutical treatment in this case is not atypical and could lead to a severe serotonin syndrome...

Thomas Schäfer, Jasmin Riedel
BACKGROUND: Studies with younger participants have shown that listening to music is used to achieve a multitude of positive effects that can be summarized by three fundamental dimensions: self-awareness, social relatedness and regulation of mood and arousal. For the elderly, these effects contain a high potential with respect to alleviation of affective symptoms and enhancement of social participation; however, it is still unclear if the elderly exhibit the same pattern of fundamental uses of listening to music as younger persons and how they evaluate their access to music in different housing situations...

The use of biomarkers for diagnostics of Alzheimer's disease (AD) has increased over the last years in specialized care and experimental settings. With the possibly upcoming availability of disease-modifying therapeutic agents, the diagnostics and treatment of patients with cognitive impairment will change. Biomarkers will be used as theranostic markers for case finding. The development and evaluation of biomarkers can be framed in a phase model from preclinical studies through trials in expert center settings to the evaluation of biomarkers in primary care, up to testing the efficacy and the impact of biomarkers on the healthcare system...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 110 years after the first description of Alzheimer's disease (AD) healthcare systems worldwide face the challenge of increasing numbers of people affected by dementia. There is a need to develop (national) dementia plans on a societal level to implement strategies to combat these challenges. These plans, among other topics, explicitly aim at scientific and research strategies as well as support and healthcare structures. OBJECTIVE: This article describes a selection of current healthcare research studies and projects in Germany...

Anemia in advanced age is often a multifactorial condition requiring an interdisciplinary approach. The contributions to the opening interdisciplinary symposium on anemia in older subjects focused on physiological and histopathological as well as on nephrological and neurogeriatric aspects and on the therapeutic implications of this underdiagnosed, yet highly frequent disease. The symposium was the kick-off event for the founding of the German Geriatric Society special interest group on anemia in advanced age...

The global shift in demographics towards aging populations is leading to a commensurate increase in age-related disease and frailty. It is essential to optimise health services to meet current needs and prepare for anticipated future demands. This paper explores issues impacting on people living with cognitive impairment and/or dementia who experience a hip fracture and are cared for in acute settings. This is important given the high mortality and morbidity associated with this population. Given the current insufficiency of clear evidence on optimum rehabilitation of this patient group, this paper explored three key themes namely: recognition of cognitive impairment, response by way of training and education of staff to optimise care for this patient group and review of the importance of outcomes measures...

Previous studies have demonstrated the effects of sclerostin antibody (Scl-Ab) and parathyroid hormone (1-34, PTH) on healing in osteoporosis; however, reports about the combined effects of Scl-Ab plus PTH on osteoporosis are limited. This study was designed to investigate the impact of combined treatment with Scl-Ab and PTH on osteoporosis healing in ovariectomized (OVX) rats. After bilateral ovariectomy, 12 weeks were allowed to pass for the establishment of standard conditions for osteoporosis in animal models...

BACKGROUND: Dementia is one of the most prevalent diseases in the older population. Various dementia care models have been developed to address patient's healthcare needs. They can be described as "collaborative care" or "person-centered care". Referring to the needs of the workforce working with persons with dementia, a key element is the use of interprofessional education (IPE). OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to describe different international collaborative care models to define a minimum standard of healthcare professions for collaborative dementia care in primary care...

Hematological malignancies are typical diseases of the elderly. The aging of the population in the Western World results in a significant increase in the number of elderly patients with hematological malignant diseases. This has important consequences for medicine. One consequence of this development is that the need for tools for the evaluation of both functional and global status of the elderly increases. The use of these tools enables the hematologist to better stratify the patients, to individualize therapy better, to possibly modify therapy in order to improve implementation of supportive measures and interventions, to minimize toxicity and side effects and ultimately to tailor the treatment to the individual patient...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The Wolf motor function test (WMFT) evaluates the upper extremity performance of patients with neurological disorders and traumatic brain injuries by assessing time and functional capacity. It was later modified to also measure the quality of the performed movements. This study aimed to adapt the WMFT for patients with shoulder injuries and to evaluate the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of this adapted version. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 20 individuals with a median age of 80...

BACKGROUND: In Germany, the very old are the most rapidly growing proportion of the population. A comprehensive investigation of the conditions for a good quality of life in this group is relevant for both society and politics. OBJECTIVE: The project "Quality of life and subjective well-being of the very old in North Rhine-Westphalia" (NRW80+) at the University of Cologne surveys quality of life of the very old. Taking into account many specific methodological and theoretical challenges, it aims at setting up a specific theoretical framework and methodological approach...

BACKGROUND: Among the elderly falls frequently result in injuries, increase the need for long-term care and pose a challenge for the quality assurance in nursing care. We describe the frequency and risk factors of falls among care-dependent persons using home care services in Germany. METHODS: The participants of the study "Nursing-related health problems in home care" (n = 880) were recruited based on a list of the officially accredited nursing services. Data collection followed a standardized study protocol...

BACKGROUND: International studies show that dementia is often recognized at later stages in general practice. Pure knowledge-sharing interventions could not change this in a sustainable manner. Concepts for changing attitudes of general practitioners (GPs) are required. OBJECTIVES: What barriers affect GPs' recognition of and diagnostic approach to dementia? What recommendations for a GP-specific diagnostic procedure can be derived from this? METHODS: Metasynthesis of qualitative studies with GPs on barriers to dementia recognition, explication of the "frailty" concept and the diagnostic approach described therein and the development of an approach in cases of suspected cognitive decline in a multiprofessional team...

Michael Pentzek, Verena Leve, Verena Leucht
BACKGROUND: Public awareness for dementia is rising and patients with concerns about forgetfulness are not uncommon in general practice. For the general practitioner (GP) subjectively perceived memory impairment (SMI) also offers a chance to broach the issue of cognitive function with the patient. This may support GPs' patient-centered care in terms of a broader frailty concept. OBJECTIVE: What is SMI (definition, operationalization, prevalence and burden)? Which conceptions and approaches do GPs have regarding SMI? METHODS: Narrative overview of recent SMI criteria and results, selective utilization of results from a systematic literature search on GP dementia care, non-systematic search regarding SMI in general practice, deduction of a study design from the overview and development according to international standards...
