Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 May 5. Epub 2020 May 5.

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (NJ, PBR), Baltimore, MD.

The public health burden of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is related not only to cognitive symptoms, but also to neuropsychiatric symptoms, including apathy. Apathy is defined as a quantitative reduction of goal-directed activity in comparison to a previous level of functioning and affects 30%-70% of persons with AD. Previous attempts to treat apathy in AD-both nonpharmacologically and pharmacologically-have been wanting. Read More

Achieving Safe, Effective, and Compassionate Quarantine or Isolation of Older Adults With Dementia in Nursing Homes.

Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 May 4. Epub 2020 May 4.

Toronto Rehab, University Health Network (AL, AC, MM, KR, CM, MAG, HQ, KBR, RK, and AJF), Toronto, ON, Canada; Centre for Mental Health, University Health Network (AL, KBR, RK, and AJF), Toronto, ON, Canada; Department of Psychiatry (AL, KBR, RK, and AJF), University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Nursing homes are facing the rapid spread of COVID-19 among residents and staff and are at the centre of the public health emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As policy changes and interventions designed to support nursing homes are put into place, there are barriers to implementing a fundamental, highly effective element of infection control, namely the isolation of suspected or confirmed cases. Many nursing home residents have dementia, associated with impairments in memory, language, insight, and judgment that impact their ability to understand and appreciate the necessity of isolation and to voluntarily comply with isolation procedures.

Geriatric mental health and COVID-19: An eye-opener to the situation of the Arab countries in the Middle East and North Africa Region.

Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 May 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Behavioural Medicine, Sultan Qaboos University, Muscat, Oman.

While the detrimental ramifications of the COVID-19 outbreak on the mental wellbeing of the general public continue to unravel, older adults seem to be at high risk. As the geriatric population continues to grow in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, it is essential to explore the influence of this outbreak on geriatric mental health, a topic often neglected. In this review, we depict the status of geriatric psychiatry in the Arab countries of the MENA region, exploring the variations from one nation to another. Read More

Ethical and Logistical Considerations of Caring for Older Adults on Inpatient Psychiatry During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 May 5. Epub 2020 May 5.

School of Medicine (MF, GCB, DCS), University of Connecticut, Farmington, CT.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has brought challenges to delivery of care for older adults on inpatient psychiatry. We describe two cases: patient A, a 62-year-old woman who initially refused screening for potential COVID-19, bringing up questions about threshold for capacity when public health is at risk and questions about whether screening for infection should be different in older adults. The other case, patient B, is that of an 83-year-old man who was on the unit when patient A tested positive, and brought up concerns for risk of dissemination in the context of wandering, spitting behaviors, and inability to adhere to room isolation or masking measures.

Treatment Adequacy and Adherence as Predictors of Depression Response in Primary Care.

Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 Apr 23. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of California at Davis (HCK).

Objective: Primary care is the de facto mental health system in the United States where physicians treat large numbers of depressed older adults with antidepressant medication. This study aimed to examine whether antidepressant dosage adequacy and patient adherence are associated with depression response among middle-aged and older adults prescribed with antidepressants by their primary care provider.

Design: A secondary analysis was conducted on a sample drawn from a randomized controlled trial comparing Treatment as Usual to Treatment Initiation Program, an adherence intervention. Read More

Resting State Functional Connectivity and Outcomes of Psychotherapies for Late-Life Depression.

Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 Apr 18. Epub 2020 Apr 18.

Weill Cornell Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medicine (NS, LWV, LO, FMG, and GSA), White Plains, NY.

Background: Problem solving therapy (PST) and "Engage," a reward-exposure" based therapy, are important treatment options for late-life depression, given modest efficacy of antidepressants in this disorder. Abnormal function of the reward and default mode networks has been observed during depressive episodes. This study examined whether resting state functional connectivity (rsFC) of reward and DMN circuitries is associated with treatment outcomes. Read More

Department of Psychiatry (EEB, SK, TKR, BGP, BHM), University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada; Adult Neurodevelopment and Geriatric Psychiatry Division (EEB, SK, TKR, BGP, BHM), Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, Canada. Electronic address:

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing global morbidity and mortality, straining health systems, and disrupting society, putting individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) at risk of significant harm. In this Special Article, we examine the current and expected impact of the pandemic on individuals with ADRD. We discuss and propose mitigation strategies for: the risk of COVID-19 infection and its associated morbidity and mortality for individuals with ADRD; the impact of COVID-19 on the diagnosis and clinical management of ADRD; consequences of societal responses to COVID-19 in different ADRD care settings; the effect of COVID-19 on caregivers and physicians of individuals with ADRD; mental hygiene, trauma, and stigma in the time of COVID-19; and the potential impact of COVID-19 on ADRD research.

Achieving Equity in Informed Consent: A Culturally-Informed Perspective for the Consideration and Consent of Minority Patients for Electroconvulsive Therapy.

Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 Apr 2. Epub 2020 Apr 2.

Department of Psychiatry and Health Behavior (WVM, PR and, EVSM), Medical College of Georgia, Augusta University, Augusta, GA.

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is highly efficacious to treat severe depression in older adults. Yet, patients of ethnic and racial minorities are consistently underrepresented amongst those who receive ECT across all age groups. One strong hypothesis to explain this disparity is that minority patients are less likely to trust medical professionals and are therefore less likely to consent for ECT. Read More

Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 2020 Mar 8. Epub 2020 Mar 8.

Amsterdam UMC- Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Amsterdam Public Health Research Institute, (NS, NMS, MH) Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Department of Sociology, Vrije Universiteit, (BS, MH) Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Objectives: The objectives of this study were to investigate the effect of genetic and social factors on depressive symptoms and depression over time and to test whether social factors moderate the relationship between depressive symptoms and its underlying genetics in later life.

Methods: The study included 2,279 participants with a mean follow-up of 15 years from the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam with genotyping data. The personal genetic loading for depression was estimated for each participant by calculating a polygenic risk scores (PRS-D), based on 23,032 single nucleotide polymorphisms associated with major depression in a large genome-wide association study.
