2. Relationships between Old Age Psychiatry and Geriatric Medicine

, it established a set of principles to help the two subspecialties work better together, adapting to local circumstances. These principles still apply, with their longevity reinforcing their sound basis. This revised statement aims to promote easy access by elderly people and their carers to high quality, well- integrated community, residential and hospital aged services of which aged psychiatry and geriatric medicine are key components. Relationships between services 1. Both old age psychiatry and geriatric (...) and general practitioners will liaise to provide a substitute service. Where old age psychiatry and geriatric medical services have defined catchments, their boundaries should correspond. 2. Wherever possible, old age psychiatry and geriatric medical services should be co-located to promote ease of access and continuity of care for people, carers and referring agencies. It is imperative, however, that old age psychiatrists, and old age psychiatry services maintain close professional and educational links

6. The Geriatricians’ Perspective on Medical Services to Residential Aged Care Facilities (RCFs) in Australia.

The neglect of the medical care of patients in long-term care wards in Britain in the 1940s stimulated the emergence of a new specialty - geriatric medicine [60]. This position paper has attempted to systematically consider the current status of medical services for people in residential aged care from several perspectives. When this paper was initially published in 2001, the conclusion was that medical services for people in Australian residential aged care had been a neglected field from all (...) perspectives including government and departmental policy development, general practice initiatives, data collection, research, and clinical guideline development. Encouragingly, a range of initiatives put in place over the past decade have the potential to improve medical service provision for this group of frail, vulnerable elderly. New GP item numbers together with the ground breaking work performed by the now disbanded GP Aged Care Panels are making it more attractive for GPs to provide care to people

Future hospital service utilisation in older adults living in long-term residential aged care or the community hospitalised with a fall-related injury. This study identified group-based trajectories of hospitalisation for older adults who were living in residential aged care facilities (RACF) or the community for up to 4 years after an index fall injury hospitalisation. Greater than 3 subsequent fall injury hospitalisations and time until move to a RACF were key predictors of RACF and community (...) -living trajectory group memberships, respectively.To examine hospital service use trajectories of people aged ≥ 65 years who had a fall injury hospitalisation and were either living in a residential aged care facility (RACF) or the community at the time of the index fall and to identify factors predictive of their trajectory group membership.A group-based trajectory analysis of hospitalisations of people aged ≥ 65 years who had a fall injury hospitalisation during 2008-2009 in New South Wales

13. Age-friendly and inclusive volunteering: Review of community contributions in later life

and widen participation across the spectrum. Our communities currently rely on a ‘civic core’ of highly engaged individuals, who are mainly middle-aged, wealthier and white. But there is no room for complacency that this group will be able to sustain its contributions in future. The older population is changing – in future it will be more ethnically diverse, and more people will live for longer with long-term conditions. These are precisely the groups who currently face the greatest barriers to getting (...) is depleted. And without action to engage people in later life in all their diversity, communities will continue to miss out on the talents they bring. To safeguard the future of our communities, we need to ensure that everyone in later life can benefit from the increased wellbeing and connection that comes from community contribution. Our review found that separate ‘older people’s’ volunteering programmes can exacerbate emotional barriers related to ageist attitudes. Rather than age-specific initiatives

15. A frailty index derived from a standardized comprehensive geriatric assessment predicts mortality and aged residential care admission. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A frailty index derived from a standardized comprehensive geriatric assessment predicts mortality and aged residential care admission. Frailty in older adults is a condition characterised by a loss or reduction in physiological reserve resulting in increased clinical vulnerability. However, evidence suggests that frailty may be modifiable, and identifying frail older people could help better target specific health care interventions and services.This was a regional longitudinal study to develop (...) a frailty index for older adults living in Canterbury New Zealand. Participants included 5586 community dwelling older people that had an interRAI Minimum Data Set (MDS-HC) Home Care assessment completed between 2008 and 2012. The outcome measures were mortality and entry into aged residential care (ARC), after five years.Participants were aged between 65 and 101 (mean age was 82 years). The five-year mortality rate, including those who entered ARC, for this cohort was 67.1% (n = 3747). The relationship

Implementing Information and Communication Technology to Support Community Aged Care Service Integration: Lessons from an Australian Aged Care Provider There is limited evidence of the benefits of information and communication technology (ICT) to support integrated aged care services.We undertook a case study to describe carelink+, a centralised client service management ICT system implemented by a large aged and community care service provider, Uniting. We sought to explicate the care-related (...) processes supporting coordination of client services. Mismatches between the data quality and the functions carelink+ was designed to support necessitated the evolution of new work processes associated with the system.There is value in explicitly modelling the work processes that emerge as a consequence of ICT. Continuous evaluation of the match between ICT and work processes will help aged care organisations to achieve higher levels of ICT maturity that support their efforts to provide integrated care

Community-based interventions to enhance healthy aging in disadvantaged areas: perceptions of older adults and health care professionals. The number of older adults with different ethnic and socioeconomic background is steadily increasing. There is a need for community-based health promotion interventions for older adults that are responsive to ethnic and socioeconomic diversity among target populations. The aim of this study is to explore encounters between older adults living in disadvantaged (...) areas and health care professionals in the context of community-based health promotion.Qualitative methods were used involving interviews and focus groups with older adults (n = 22) and municipal health care professionals (n = 8), and multiple observations were conducted. Data were analyzed thematically.Findings show a gap between health promotion services and older adults due to a perception of services as being neither accessible nor acceptable in the context of complex health and psychosocial
