: Prospective cohort study with long-term follow-up. Setting: International and multicenter locations. Participants: Patients aged 70 years or older undergoing elective surgery for a malignant solid tumor at five centers (n = 229). Measurements: We assessed long-term survival and institutionalization using the Preoperative Risk Estimation for Onco-geriatric Patients (PREOP) score, developed to predict the 30-day risk of major complications. The PREOP score collected data about sex, type of surgery (...) REFERENCES Kinsella K, Philips DR. Global aging: the challenge of success. Popul Bull. 2005;60(1):3-40.

practical and timely clinical recom- mendations on the prevention, assessment, and treatment of OUD in older adults within the Canadian context. Key words: opioids, opioid dependence, opioid use disorder, substance use disorder, substance abuse, older adult, geriatric, systematic review, guideline INTRODUCTION According to the World Health Organization (WHO), people over the age of 50 accounted for 39% of deaths from drug use worldwide by 2015, and of those deaths in older adults (age = 65 (...) opioid therapy (24.8%) than any other age group. (14) From 2007 to 2015, hospitalizations for opioid overdose (referred to as poisonings) in Canada were con- sistently higher in older adults than in any other age cohort: At over 20 per 100,000, older-adult admissions are almost double that of 15 to 24-year-olds, and represent 30% of all admissions to hospital for opioid poisoning. (15) Only recently by 2017 have younger adults in Canada started to equal and just surpass older adults

trauma already accounts for 33% of trauma care expenditures in the United States, or US $9 billion per year,  while trauma ranks as the seventh-highest cause of death for those 65 years and older.  Among elderly trauma patients, ground-level fall (GLF) is the most common traumatic mechanism, occurring nearly 10 times more often than motor vehicle crashes.  Nearly one in three geriatric persons will have a GLF each year.  These GLFs are not benign in this population, as 6% will sustain (...) TJ, Kammerlander-Knauer U, Krappinger D, Blauth M.

-targeted database (2016-2017). Outcomes were analyzed between adult (age <65), older-adult (age ≥65 and <80), and oldest-old (age ≥80) patients. Five-factor modified frailty index (mFI-5) was calculated based on functional status, diabetes, COPD, CHF, and hypertension, and used in comparative analyses. Results: A total of 2189 adult, 635 older-adult, and 59 oldest-old patients were included. Compared to adult patients, older-adult and oldest-old patients had higher mFI-5 ≥0.4 rates (14% vs. 22% vs. 31 (...) %, respectively, p < 0.001). The overall complication rate was 17.0% and similar between groups; however, oldest-old patients had higher rates of surgical site infection (3.4% vs. 0.3% vs. 0.4%), pneumonia (5.1% vs. 0.3% vs. 0.2%), and readmission (10.2% vs. 2.4% vs. 2.6%) compared to older-adult and adult patients, respectively (p < 0.05). On multivariable analyses of thyroidectomy-specific complications, mFI-5 ≥0.4 (OR 2.5, 95%-CI 1.4-4.4) and bleeding disorder (OR 4.6, 95%-CI 1.3-16.3) were predictive
Continuation of Annual Screening Mammography and Breast Cancer Mortality in Women Older Than 70 Years. Randomized trials have shown that initiating breast cancer screening between ages 50 and 69 years and continuing it for 10 years decreases breast cancer mortality. However, no trials have studied whether or when women can safely stop screening mammography. An estimated 52% of women aged 75 years or older undergo screening mammography in the United States.To estimate the effect of breast cancer (...) screening on breast cancer mortality in Medicare beneficiaries aged 70 to 84 years.Large-scale, population-based, observational study of 2 screening strategies: continuing annual mammography, and stopping screening.U.S. Medicare program, 2000 to 2008.1 058 013 beneficiaries aged 70 to 84 years who had a life expectancy of at least 10 years, had no previous breast cancer diagnosis, and underwent screening mammography.Eight-year breast cancer mortality, incidence, and treatments, plus the positive
Mortality and Hospitalizations for Dually Enrolled and Nondually Enrolled Medicare Beneficiaries Aged 65 Years or Older, 2004 to 2017. Medicare beneficiaries who are also enrolled in Medicaid (dually enrolled beneficiaries) have drawn the attention of policy makers because they comprise the poorest subset of the Medicare population; however, it is unclear how their outcomes have changed over time compared with those only enrolled in Medicare (nondually enrolled beneficiaries).To evaluate annual (...) changes in all-cause mortality, hospitalization rates, and hospitalization-related mortality among dually enrolled beneficiaries and nondually enrolled beneficiaries.Serial cross-sectional study of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries aged 65 years or older between January 2004 and December 2017.

& Development Management eBrief no. 170 » Issue 170 March 2020 The report is a product of the VA/HSR&D Evidence Synthesis Program. Deprescribing for Older Veterans: A Systematic Review More than 40% of people in the United States age ≥65 years take five or more prescription medications on a regular basis to control or prevent disease symptoms and complications. The number of medications a person is taking may be the single most important predictor of adverse drug effects. Efforts have been underway for more (...) medications, and medications known to pose risks in the elderly. The VA Center for Medication Safety in Aging was charged with the development and implementation of deprescribing approaches in VA settings. Commissioned by the National Center for Patient Safety and endorsed by VA Pharmacy Benefits Management and the Geriatrics and Extended Care Services, the purpose of this evidence review is to inform that work. Specific questions to be addressed included: What are the effectiveness, comparative

Happiness or hopelessness in late life: A cluster RCT of the 3L-Mind-Training programme among the institutionalized olderpeople To explore the effectiveness of a new mental health promotion activities programme by including the criterion variables of happiness and depressive mood.A single-blinded, clustered, randomized and controlled trial.A list consisting of the names of elderly residents was provided by the senior social worker at a geriatric institution. The participants recruited (...) to measure happiness. The Geriatric Depression Scale short-form was used to measure depression in olderpeople. A generalized estimating equation was used to analyse the short-term and durative effects.The 126 residents included in the study were 65-97 years old, and 90% of the residents relied on wheelchairs. The intervention activities give significant immediate and durative effects both on subjective well-being enhancement and depressive mood relief. When evaluating the overall intervention activity
