75. Tai Chi with music improves quality of life among community-dwelling older persons with mild to moderate depressive symptoms: A cluster randomized controlled trial. (Abstract)

Tai Chi with music improves quality of life among community-dwelling older persons with mild to moderate depressive symptoms: A cluster randomized controlled trial. Depression leads to a poorer quality of life (QOL) which is a determinant of healthy ageing. Cost-effective solutions for enhancing QOL in the older population are much needed in China, with its rapidly ageing population. We conducted a randomized controlled trial involving 112 community-dwelling older participants with mild (...) to moderate depression, to evaluate the effect of Tai Chi with music on QOL (57 in intervention group, 55 in control group). WHO Quality of Life-BREF was used to measure QOL at baseline and at every month for three months. Following the adjustments for sociodemographic data, the effect of intervention on QOL was assured (F = 25.145, P < 0.001, ηp2= 0.435, F = 18.696, P < 0.001, ηp2= 0.364, F = 17.473, P< 0.001, ηp2= 0.348, and F = 29.576, P < 0.001, ηp2= 0.475 for physical, psychological, social

78. In the Eyes of Those Who Were Randomized: Perceptions of Disadvantaged Older Adults in a Tai Chi Trial. (Abstract)

In the Eyes of Those Who Were Randomized: Perceptions of Disadvantaged Older Adults in a Tai Chi Trial. Older adults living in subsidized housing have typically been excluded from exercise intervention studies. We conducted a qualitative study to explore the perceived physical, psychological, social, and economic factors that influenced participation in and adherence to a year-long Tai Chi intervention within an ongoing cluster-randomized controlled trial (RCT) for older adults living within (...) subsidized housing facilities.Focus groups were held with participants of the RCT who were allocated to the trial's Tai Chi intervention. Individual phone interviews were conducted with those allocated to Tai Chi who had low adherence or who had withdrawn their participation from the study. Emergent themes were extracted using grounded-theory methods.In this qualitative study, we enrolled 41 participants who were allocated to the RCT's Tai Chi intervention: 38 completed and 3 withdrew from the study
