23. The Wechsler Digit Symbol Substitution Test as the Best Indicator of the Risk of Impaired Driving in Alzheimer Disease and Normal Aging. (PubMed)

The Wechsler Digit Symbol Substitution Test as the Best Indicator of the Risk of Impaired Driving in Alzheimer Disease and Normal Aging. Our purpose was to identify cognitive tools associated with unsafe driving among elderly drivers of varying cognitive levels.Twenty drivers with early-stage dementia of the Alzheimer type and 56 nondemented drivers aged 65-85 were recruited. Various cognitive processes were measured and unsafe driving was evaluated during an in-traffic road test with 3 (...) different indicators and a composite indicator.The Wechsler Digit Symbol Substitution Test score was the best cognitive measure to detect unsafe drivers using the composite driving indicator.The Digit Symbol Substitution Test may be used by physicians for the evaluation and follow-up of older patients, with or without Alzheimer-type dementia, as a screening tool of unsafe driving.

services. This chapter provides an overview of some of the harmful consequences of substance use among the aging population, including hospitalization, falls, vehicular accidents, cognitive impairment, depression, substance withdrawal and death, including by suicide. Mortality rates are much higher among older adults who have substance use disorders. Because the use of alcohol and medication, whether prescribed or misused, causes greater harm in older adults than illicit drugs, this chapter focuses (...) of substance use in older adults has proven to be difficult for a number of reasons. Too often, the symptoms of impairment are dismissed by clinicians as the symptoms of old age. The social isolation experienced by many older adults results in fewer opportunities for monitoring by friends and family. As their social networks continue to grow smaller, many older adults are hesitant to even broach the topic of substance use with family or caregivers, not wanting to bring conflict into their few remaining

Opioids Opioids are associated with a number of side effects that may impair the ability to drive including: sedation, fatigue, cognitive and visual disturbance. Elderly drivers who are not habituated to opioids show signs of impairment even at relatively low doses of a weak opioid such as codeine. 8 It is of no surprise that stronger opioids when given to opioid naïve drivers also show evidence (...) and duloxetine are also associated with an increased risk of crashing, although objective tests of driving function often fail to demonstrate a deleterious effect. 7 Antiepileptic drugs Anticonvulsant medications such as carbamazepine and gabapentin can cause sedation, cognitive impairment and visual disturbance and are associated with a significantly increased risk of crashing. 7 Reducing the dose of anti- epileptic medication appears to reduce the risk of an accident.

However, the cost of surgery for low back pain (...)

for improving population health, and especially important for more vulnerable children. Evidence indicates that actions to improve early child development have the most cost-effective impact on health equity (9,10,12,20). Children’s social, educational and health care needs are closely intertwined. Thus, inadequate socioeconomic conditions, care, health, nutrition and physical and emotional nurturing can reduce educational attainment by impairing cognitive and behavioural capacities, delaying motor (...) programmes should be considered (Case study 3). The most successful programmes place a strong focus on cognitive outcomes, which are more malleable earlier in life. More information on the importance of these approaches for SROI is provided in the linked report on investment for health and well-being (12). Such programmes provide disadvantaged children with an enriched out-of-family environment while also working to raise the quality of the home environment (22). Home visiting improves service uptake

This could be an elderly person with heart failure and diabetes having had a fall, someone with lung disease experiencing breathlessness or a person at risk of suicide ringing in distress. Patient needs have become more complex, there is an ageing population and the number of 999 calls has risen. At the same time (...) arrangements. It is sometimes difficult to know which option is best. And we need to understand what encourages people to choose one service over another. The question of where patients go is addressed in part of an NIHR review looking at published research on drivers for increased demand for emergency care (Turner 2015, NIHR published study one). The reasons were complex and difficult to synthesise from the 38 relevant papers, but included issues such as access to, and confidence in, primary care
