A 2 year multidomain intervention of diet, exercise, cognitive training, and vascular risk monitoring versus control to prevent cognitive decline in at-risk elderly people (FINGER): a randomised controlled trial. BACKGROUND: Modifiable vascular and lifestyle-related risk factors have been associated with dementia risk in observational studies. In the Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability (FINGER), a proof-of-concept randomised controlled trial, we (...) aimed to assess a multidomain approach to prevent cognitive decline in at-risk elderly people from the general population. METHODS: In a double-blind randomised controlled trial we enrolled individuals aged 60-77 years recruited from previous national surveys. Inclusion criteria were CAIDE (Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Aging and Dementia) Dementia Risk Score of at least 6 points and cognition at mean level or slightly lower than expected for age.

Swedish Agency for Health Technology Assessment and Assessment of Social Services Chronic ulcers in the elderly – prevention and treatment Share: Reading time approx. 1 minute This document was published more than 2 years ago. The nature of the evidence may have changed (...) . Conclusions The scientific evidence for the prevention and treatment of chronic ulcers in the elderly is limited. For the majority of interventions, more research of good scientific quality is required. The elderly population often has co-morbidities and multiple medications, which can affect ulcer healing and introduce bias into the studies. It is unclear to what extent different methods for the treatment and prevention of chronic ulcers are currently used in clinical praxis in Sweden. Based

Abstract Background: The concept of a Mediterranean diet decreasing mortality rates is one that is becoming more popular in current research today. However, the effect on mortality when (...) this diet is initiated in an elderly population is largely unexplored. The purpose of this review is to look at whether current research suggests that a Mediterranean diet can impact all-cause mortality in this population. Methods: Exhaustive search of available medical literature in Medline-Ovid, CINAHL, and Google Scholar using the keywords: diet/Mediterranean, mortality, and elderly/aging. GRADE was utilized in assigning the quality of evidence. Results: Three studies met eligibility criteria
