    Methods: perinatal and infant health records were kept on all children born in Hertfordshire between 1931 and 1939. Read More

    The role of biomarkers and imaging in the clinical diagnosis of dementia.
    Age Ageing 2018 Feb 8. Epub 2018 Feb 8.
    Division of Population Medicine, School of Medicine, Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK.
    Recognition of dementia relies on a good clinical history, supported by formal cognitive testing, but identifying the subtype of dementia may be wrong in 20% or more of cases. Accuracy may be improved by use of imaging and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers. Structural neuroimaging is recommended for most patients, not just to identify potentially reversible surgical pathology, but also to detect vascular changes and patterns of cerebral atrophy.

    Design: a dynamic microsimulation model, the Population Ageing and Care Simulation (PACSim) model, simulates the characteristics (sociodemographic factors, health behaviours, chronic diseases and geriatric conditions) of individuals over the period 2014-2040. Read More

    The barriers and facilitators for recognising distress in people with severe dementia on general hospital wards.
    Age Ageing 2018 Jan 17. Epub 2018 Jan 17.
    Academic Unit of Palliative Care, Leeds Institute of Health Sciences, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK.
    Introduction: psychological symptoms and delirium are common, but underreported in people with dementia on hospital wards. Unrecognised and untreated symptoms can manifest as distress. Identifying distress accurately therefore could act as a trigger for better investigation and treatment of the underlying causes. Read More

    The decision to work after state pension age and how it affects quality of life: evidence from a 6-year English panel study.
    Age Ageing 2018 Jan 10. Epub 2018 Jan 10.
    Institute of Gerontology, Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, King's College London, London, UK.
    Background: despite an increasing proportion of older people working beyond State Pension Age (SPA), little is known about neither the motivations for this decision nor whether, and to what extent, working beyond SPA affects quality of life (QoL).

    Methods: QoL was measured using the CASP-19 scale. Respondents in paid work beyond SPA were distinguished based on whether they reported financial constraints as the main reason for continuing in work. Read More

    Seeking assistance in later life: how do older people evaluate their need for assistance?
    Age Ageing 2018 Jan 5. Epub 2018 Jan 5.
    University College London, England.
    Background: legislation places an onus on local authorities to be aware of care needs in their locality and to prevent and reduce care and support needs. The existing literature overlooks ostensibly 'healthy' and/or non-users of specific services, non-health services and informal assistance and therefore inadequately explains what happens before or instead of individuals seeking services. We sought to address these gaps by exploring older adults' accounts of seeking assistance in later life. Read More

    Cost-effectiveness of food, supplement and environmental interventions to address malnutrition in residential aged care: a systematic review.
    Age Ageing 2018 Jan 5. Epub 2018 Jan 5.
    Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine, Bond University, Robina, Queensland 4226, Australia.
    Background: observational studies have shown that nutritional strategies to manage malnutrition may be cost-effective in aged care; but more robust economic data is needed to support and encourage translation to practice. Therefore, the aim of this systematic review is to compare the cost-effectiveness of implementing nutrition interventions targeting malnutrition in aged care homes versus usual care.

    Setting: residential aged care homes. Read More

    Implications of guidelines for osteoporosis and its treatment.
    Age Ageing 2018 Jan 5. Epub 2018 Jan 5.
    Institute for Cellular Medicine Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 4HH, UK.
    The development of clinical guidelines is now a more uniform process, with formalised methods to ensure that recommendations are based on current best available evidence from randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews. Over the past 20 years we have seen a growth in guidelines including those relating to osteoporosis, with recommendations varying between and within countries. Some guidelines are concerned with case finding and primary or secondary prevention, such as those produced by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE CG146, TA-160, -161, -464), while others focus on specific conditions or risk factors associated with osteoporosis, such as the menopause, coeliac disease and eating disorder.

    Frailty: mind the gap.
    Age Ageing 2017 Dec 29. Epub 2017 Dec 29.
    Centre for Research in Geriatric Medicine, School of Clinical Medicine, The University of Queensland, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, QLD, Australia.
    Frailty has become the focus of considerable research interest and media attention over the past 15 years. While it has much to offer geriatric medicine, potential pitfalls also need to be acknowledged. The conceptualisation of frailty in very different ways-as a syndrome or a risk state-has created semantic dissonance: the frailest patients by one definition may have early sarcopenia, by another be bedbound and in institutional care.

    Association of estimated glomerular filtration rate with muscle function in older persons who have fallen.
    Age Ageing 2017 Dec 8. Epub 2017 Dec 8.
    Section of Geriatric Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
    Background: studies suggest that estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is less reliable in older persons and that a low serum-creatinine might reflect reduced muscle mass rather than high kidney function. This study investigates the possible relationship between eGFR and multiple elements of physical performance in older fallers.

    Methods: baseline data of the IMPROveFALL-study were examined in participants ≥65 years. Read More

    'Working away in that Grey Area…' A qualitative exploration of the challenges general practitioners experience when managing behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia.
    Age Ageing 2017 Dec 6:1-9. Epub 2017 Dec 6.
    Dept. of General Practice, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland.
    Background: general practitioners (GPs) have identified the management of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) as a particularly challenging aspect of dementia care. However, there is a paucity of research on why GPs find BPSD challenging and how this influences the care they offer to their patients with dementia.

    Objectives: to establish the challenges GPs experience when managing BPSD; to explore how these challenges influence GPs' management decisions; and to identify strategies for overcoming these challenges. Read More
