182. Older adult falls prevention behaviors 60 days post-discharge from an urban emergency department after treatment for a fall Full Text available with Trip Pro

Older adult falls prevention behaviors 60 days post-discharge from an urban emergency department after treatment for a fall Falls are a common and debilitating health problem for older adults. Older adults are often treated and discharged home by emergency department (ED)-based providers with the hope they will receive falls prevention resources and referrals from their primary care provider. This descriptive study investigated falls prevention activities, including interactions with primary (...) care providers, among community-dwelling older adults who were discharged home after presenting to an ED with a fall-related injury.We enrolled English speaking patients, aged ≥ 65 years, who presented to the ED of an urban level one trauma center with a fall or fall related injury and discharged home. During subjects' initial visits to the ED, we screened and enrolled patients, gathered patient demographics and provided them with a flyer for a Matter of Balance course. Sixty-days post enrollment

184. Fall Risk Score at the Time of Discharge Predicts Readmission Following Total Joint Arthroplasty (Abstract)

Fall Risk Score at the Time of Discharge Predicts Readmission Following Total Joint Arthroplasty Readmission among Medicare recipients is a leading driver of healthcare expenditure. To date, most predictive tools are too coarse for direct clinical application. Our objective in this study is to determine if a pre-existing tool to identify patients at increased risk for inpatient falls, the Hendrich Fall Risk Score, could be used to accurately identify Medicare patients at increased risk (...) for readmission following arthroplasty, regardless of whether the readmission was due to a fall.This study is a retrospective cohort study. We identified 2437 Medicare patients who underwent a primary elective total joint arthroplasty (TJA) of the hip or knee for osteoarthritis between 2011 and 2014. The Hendrich Fall Risk score was recorded for each patient preoperatively and postoperatively. Our main outcome measure was hospital readmission within 30 days of discharge.Of 2437 eligible TJA recipients

185. A home program of strength training, movement strategy training and education did not prevent falls in people with Parkinson`s disease: a randomised trial Full Text available with Trip Pro

A home program of strength training, movement strategy training and education did not prevent falls in people with Parkinson`s disease: a randomised trial For people with idiopathic Parkinson's disease, does a 6-week, comprehensive, home exercise program reduce falls and disability and improve health-related quality of life? Is the program cost-effective?Randomised, controlled trial with concealed allocation and assessor blinding.One hundred and thirty-three community-dwelling adults (...) with Parkinson's disease.The experimental group completed a 6-week home program comprising progressive resistance strength training, movement strategy training and falls education. The control group completed 6 weeks of non-specific life skills training. Participants in both groups received weekly therapist-guided sessions for 6 consecutive weeks and a weekly self-directed home program.The primary outcome was the rate of falls, documented for the 12-month period immediately after therapy.

186. Paramedic Assessment of Older Adults After Falls, Including Community Care Referral Pathway: Cluster Randomized Trial Full Text available with Trip Pro

Paramedic Assessment of Older Adults After Falls, Including Community Care Referral Pathway: Cluster Randomized Trial We aim to determine clinical and cost-effectiveness of a paramedic protocol for the care of older people who fall.We undertook a cluster randomized trial in 3 UK ambulance services between March 2011 and June 2012. We included patients aged 65 years or older after an emergency call for a fall, attended by paramedics based at trial stations. Intervention paramedics could refer (...) the patient to a community-based falls service instead of transporting the patient to the emergency department. Control paramedics provided care as usual. The primary outcome was subsequent emergency contacts or death.One hundred five paramedics based at 14 intervention stations attended 3,073 eligible patients; 110 paramedics based at 11 control stations attended 2,841 eligible patients. We analyzed primary outcomes for 2,391 intervention and 2,264 control patients. One third of patients made further

190. Evaluation of an inpatient fall risk screening tool to identify the most critical fall risk factors in inpatients (Abstract)

Evaluation of an inpatient fall risk screening tool to identify the most critical fall risk factors in inpatients To evaluate the accuracy of the inpatient fall risk screening tool and to identify the most critical fall risk factors in inpatients.Variations exist in several screening tools applied in acute care hospitals for examining risk factors for falls and identifying high-risk inpatients.Secondary data analysis.A subset of inpatient data for the period from June 2011-June 2014 (...) was extracted from the nursing information system and adverse event reporting system of an 818-bed teaching medical centre in Taipei. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics, receiver operating characteristic curve analysis and logistic regression analysis.During the study period, 205 fallers and 37,232 nonfallers were identified. The results revealed that the inpatient fall risk screening tool (cut-off point of ≥3) had a low sensitivity level (60%), satisfactory specificity (87%), a positive

Historical Perspective on the Rise and Fall and Rise of Antibiotics and Human Weight Gain. In recent medical and popular literature, audiences have been asked to consider whether antibiotics have contributed to the rising obesity epidemic. Prominent magazines have stated that weight may be adversely affected by antibiotics that destroy existing microbiomes and replace them with less helpful ones. However, there is a long history of efforts to investigate the relationship between antibiotics
