Doctors are neither more nor less susceptible than the general population to the effects of ageing. The relevance of deterioration with age depends on the nature of the work undertaken. Reduced muscle strength and visual and auditory deterioration can compromise clinical ability. Accumulation of chronic disease further reduces capacity. Cognitive decline is of particular importance, as good medical care requires considerable cognitive function. Patient safety is paramount, yet older doctors are an important part of the medical workforce and their value should be recognised...

REVIEW
Samantha Neylon, Caroline Bulsara, Anne-Marie Hill
OBJECTIVE: To determine applicability of environment assessment tools in guiding minor refurbishments of Australian residential aged care facilities. METHOD: Studies conducted in residential aged care settings using assessment tools which address the physical environment were eligible for inclusion in a systematic review. Given these studies are limited, tools which have not yet been utilised in research settings were also included. Tools were analysed using a critical appraisal screen...

AIM: An Observed Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) was integrated into the assessment for senior medical students undertaking a 4.5-week geriatric medicine teaching block at one campus. The feasibility and acceptability of an OSCE were examined. METHODS: Students completed eight questions regarding the OSCE using a 6-point Likert scale and two additional questions, using free text, highlighting the strengths and potential areas for improvement. Changes were made every 6 months over a two-year period in response to student evaluation...

AIM: To assess the effect of age-adjusted Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) score on Functional Independence Measure (FIM) score gain in older rehabilitation patients. METHODS: This prospective cohort study observed 306 older rehabilitation patients admitted to a secondary hospital between February and April 2015. Groups were compared using CCI score cut-offs of ≤4, 5-6 and ≥ 7. RESULTS: Complete FIM data were available for 280 patients...

AIM: To characterise quetiapine reported adverse drug events (ADEs) in older Australians in terms of type, frequency, severity and outcome, and to compare these characteristics with those of younger Australians. METHODS: Basic descriptive analyses were used to examine patient characteristics. The characteristics of reported ADEs were compared between older and younger Australians using odds ratios and chi-squared tests. RESULTS: The most frequently reported ADEs in older people were nervous system disorders (23...

Jiakun Zheng, Junyi Liu, Ruopeng An
AIM: This study examined functional limitation in relation to cognitive impairment among 80+ year old Chinese. METHODS: Cognitively-intact adults ≥80 years old (n = 5161) came from the 1998 Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey. Cognitive impairment was assessed by Mini-Mental State Examination. Functional limitation was assessed by Katz activities of daily living (ADLs). Cox regressions were performed to examine the relationship between functional limitation in 1998 and cognitive impairment onset during the follow-up period of 1998-2012...

AIM: To address Australian aged care workforce challenges, a deeper understanding of the current care workforce is needed especially given estimated increases in demand. We provide a national picture of the aged care workforce in Australia focusing on country of birth. METHODS: Data from the 2006 and 2011 Australian censuses. RESULTS: The majority of care workers are Australia-born followed by those born in the United Kingdom, South-East Asia and South Asia...

Adrienne Lewis, Alison Kitson, Gill Harvey
AIM: To explore how home care providers can support older people to maintain good oral health through implementing a model called Better Oral Health in Home Care (BOHHC). METHODS: A mixed method, pre- to post-implementation design was used. The Promoting Action on Research Implementation in Health Services framework informed the model's implementation process. RESULTS: High levels of dental need were identified at pre-implementation. Older people self-reported significant oral health improvements following the introduction of tailored home care strategies by care workers, who in turn reported a better understanding and knowledge of the importance of oral care for older people...
