82. Pharmacist’s Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment: Introduction and Evaluation at Elderly Patient Admission Full Text available with Trip Pro

Pharmacist’s Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment: Introduction and Evaluation at Elderly Patient Admission The role of the clinical pharmacist within the healthcare system remains unclear.Our objective was to describe a pharmacist's comprehensive geriatric assessment (pCGA) at admission of elderly patients and to assess its relevance in terms of medication compliance and pharmacist interventions (PIs).We conducted a prospective interventional study over 29 months in a 34-bed medical (...) /rehabilitation geriatric ward in a French geriatric hospital. At admission, patients received pharmaceutical care through a consistent three-step process: (1) pharmacists met with the patient to undertake cognitive screening and assess their medication adherence (using the Girerd score) and medication history; (2) medication reconciliation was conducted at admission to detect intentional and unintentional discrepancies in treatment; and (3) clinical medication review was carried out throughout the patient's

Evaluation of delirium screening tools in geriatric medical inpatients: a diagnostic test accuracy study screening all unscheduled older adults for delirium is recommended in national guidelines, but there is no consensus on how to perform initial assessment.to evaluate the test accuracy of five brief cognitive assessment tools for delirium diagnosis in routine clinical practice.a consecutive cohort of non-elective, elderly care (older than 65 years) hospital inpatients admitted to a geriatric (...) a sensitivity of 86.7% (95% CI: 77.5-93.2) and specificity of 69.5% (95% CI: 64.4-74.3).short screening tools such as AMT-4 or MOTYB have good sensitivity for definite delirium, but poor specificity; these tools may be reasonable as a first stage in assessment for delirium. The 4AT is feasible and appears to perform well with good sensitivity and reasonable specificity.© The Author 2016. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the British Geriatrics Society.

85. Delivering tailored surgery to older cancer patients: Preoperative geriatric assessment domains and screening tools - A systematic review of systematic reviews. (Abstract)

Delivering tailored surgery to older cancer patients: Preoperative geriatric assessment domains and screening tools - A systematic review of systematic reviews. The onco-geriatric population is increasing and thus more and more elderly will require surgery; an important treatment modality for many cancer types. This population's heterogeneity demands preoperative risk stratification, which has led to the introduction of Geriatric Assessment (GA) and associated screening tools in surgical (...) oncology. Many reviews have investigated the use of GA in onco-geriatric patients. Discrepancies in outcomes between studies currently hamper the implementation of a preoperative GA in clinical practice. A systematic review of systematic reviews was performed in order to investigate assessment tools of the most commonly included GA domains and their predictive ability regarding the adverse postoperative outcomes. All domains - except polypharmacy - were, to a varying degree, associated with different

86. Abnormal Mini-Cog Is Associated with Higher Risk of Complications and Delirium in Geriatric Patients with Fracture (Abstract)

Abnormal Mini-Cog Is Associated with Higher Risk of Complications and Delirium in Geriatric Patients with Fracture The Mini-Cog test is a validated and simple tool to screen for dementia. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of cognitive impairment as measured by Mini-Cog testing as a predictor for in-hospital complications and mortality in geriatric patients with fracture.From 2011 to 2014, patients who were seventy years of age or older, had a fracture, and were (...) admitted to co-managed orthopaedic trauma and geriatrics services embedded at two Level-I trauma centers were enrolled in our study. As part of the patients' routine admission evaluation, the Mini-Cog examination was performed. An observational cohort study was completed documenting pre-injury functional status, in-hospital complications, length of stay, thirty-day readmission, and mortality. All patients in the study were followed for at least one year.Seven hundred and thirty-nine patients (median
