REVIEW
David Eibling, Karen Kost
Sub-specialization within otolaryngology, like other specialties, is driven by accumulation of new knowledge and technology. For a variety of reasons, the establishment of a new subspecialty of geriatric otolaryngology is unlikely. Education of all otolaryngologists in the basic principles of gerontology and geriatric otolaryngology is achievable and represents a preferred strategy.

Gerontology, geriatrics, and mentoring have a lot in common. The prototype of this role was Mentor, an older adult in Homer's The Odyssey, who was enlisted to look after Odysseus' son, Telemachus, while his father was away fighting the Trojan War. Portrayed as an older man, the name "mentor" literally means "a man who thinks," which is not a bad characterization generally for faculty members in gerontology! In particular, gerontological and geriatrics education can teach us a lot about the importance of mentoring and provide some critical insights into this role: (1) the importance of interprofessional leadership and modeling, (2) the application of the concept of "grand-generativity" to mentoring, (3) "it takes a community" to be effective in mentoring others, and (4) the need to tailor mentorship styles to the person and the situation...

BACKGROUND: This preparatory study accelerates an implementation of individualized monitoring and feedback of physical motion using conventional motion trackers in the rehabilitation process of geriatric trauma patients. Regaining mobility is accompanied with improved quality of life in persons of very advanced age recovering from fragility fractures. OBJECTIVES: Quantitative survey of regaining physical mobility provides recommendations for action on how to use motion trackers effectively in a clinical geriatric setting...

OBJECTIVE: Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are a leading cause of healthy years lost due to premature mortality and disability. Our objective was to investigate whether MSDs were commensurably represented within the published health literature. METHODS: MEDLINE bibliometric data were retrieved for 2016 and 2011. The 25 disease branches, including MSDs, were ranked according to published paper counts, proportion of all publications, and increase in publications from 2011 to 2016...

Background: Higher-level functional capacity is crucial component for independent living in later life. We used repeated-measures analysis to identify aging trajectories in higher-level functional capacity. We then determined whether these trajectories were associated with all-cause mortality and examined differences in medical and long-term care costs between trajectories among community-dwelling older Japanese. Methods: 2,675 adults aged 65-90 years participated in annual geriatric health assessments and biennial health monitoring surveys during the period from October 2001 through August 2011...

AIM: Long-term care systems may alleviate caregiver burdens, particularly for those with fewer resources. However, it remains unclear whether socioeconomic disparity in caregiver burdens exists under a public, universal long-term care insurance (LTCI) system. This study examined income-based inequalities in caregiving time and depressive symptoms in Japanese older family caregivers. We further compared inequality in depressive symptoms with that of non-caregivers to evaluate whether family caregiving exacerbates this disparity...

Since the operational definition of "cognitive frailty" was first proposed in 2013 by the International Academy of Nutrition and Aging and the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics, several studies have been carried out using this cognitive frailty model. In this review, we examined the available clinical and epidemiological evidence for cognitive frailty. Despite its low prevalence (1.0-1.8%) in the community setting, cognitive frailty has been associated with a high risk of disability, poor quality of life, and death; while cognitive frailty appears to be associated with a high risk of dementia, there is no clear evidence for this association...

Confronted with the growing incidence of age-related pathologies and the limits of so-called traditional medicine oriented towards the prescribing of medicines, non-pharmacological approaches have grown considerably in the geriatric community. A literature review focused on the therapeutic benefit of humour, laughter and the use of clowns on the physical and psychological health of elderly people.

A fragmented workforce consisting of multiple disciplines with varying levels of training and limited ability to work as a team often provides care to older adults. Interprofessional education (IPE) is essential for preparing practitioners for the effective teamwork required for community-based, holistic, person-centered care of the older adults. Despite numerous programs and offerings to advance education and interdisciplinary patient care, there is an unmet need for geriatric IPE, especially as it relates to community-dwelling older adults and caregivers in medically underserved areas...

This article is based on the M. Powell Lawton Award Lecture that I delivered at the 2016 Gerontological Society of America Annual Meeting. I provide an overview of my journey in geriatric medicine and delirium research. I created new measures, including the Confusion Assessment Method, for identification of delirium; conceptualized a multifactorial risk model; and developed and tested intervention strategies for delirium prevention. The Hospital Elder Life Program arose from this work. In addition, like Dr...

AIM: To investigate the association between mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and oral status, and to develop an oral-based screening index for MCI. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was carried out in a total of 5104 community-dwelling adults (aged ≥65 years) from the Obu Study of Health Promotion for the Elderly. Screening for MCI included a standardized personal interview, Mini-Mental State Examination, Geriatrics and Gerontology-Functional Assessment Tool (which included 8 tasks used to assess logical memory, word list memory, attention and executive function, processing speed, and visuospatial skill) and oral status...

Traditional university learning modalities of lectures and examinations do not prepare students fully for the evolving and complex world of gerontology and geriatrics. Students involved in more active, self-directed learning can develop a wider breadth of knowledge and perform better on practical examinations. This article describes the Evidence in Aging (EIA) study as a model of active learning with the aim of preparing students to be effective interdisciplinary researchers, educators, and leaders in aging...

BACKGROUND: Nurse-led models of comprehensive geriatric assessment and care coordination can improve health management as well as reduce hospitalisations for high risk community dwelling older people. This study investigated the effect on healthcare utilisation of systematic case finding to identify high risk older people in the community with a subsequent comprehensive assessment and care coordination intervention by a Gerontology Nurse Specialist based in primary care. METHODS: This was a controlled before-after study design located within primary healthcare practices in Auckland, New Zealand...

BACKGROUND: The present study aims to investigate the effect of two educational strategies to teach geriatrics (flipped classroom-FL and traditional lectures-TR) in relation to a control group (no intervention) on students' competences. METHOD: An intervention study was conducted during the third year of medicine. Two different educational strategies (flipped classroom and traditional lectures) were incorporated into a theoretical-practical discipline of geriatrics...

REVIEW

The expression of the sexuality of the ageing patient in the care setting, particularly when it concerns the genital area and involves the caregiver without he or she being aware, constitutes a critical situation for the geriatric teams. A psychodynamic reading of these situations is important for the caregiving teams in order to optimise the somatic treatment and to prevent the risk of an unsuitable reactive treatment. This article presents a clinical case as an example.

OBJECTIVES: Frailty is a course experienced in advanced aging. Identification of a biological factor associated with frailty is required. Although serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) is a potential factor related with frailty, consensus has not been reached regarding this relationship. This study aimed to investigate the association between IGF-1 and frailty in older adults. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Cohort study that was part of the "National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology - Study of Geriatric Syndromes...
