- 2013Martin Prince, Maëlenn Guerchet, and Matthew Prina.Although high income countries, including the G8, have borne the brunt of the dementia epidemic, this is a global phenomenon. Most people with dementia live in low and middle income countries, and most of the dramatic increases in numbers affected, through to 2050, will occur in those regions. In a spirit of international cooperation and solidarity we urge the G8 governments to sponsor intergovernmental action to make dementia a global priority. Crucially, this must include opening up access to diagnosis and current evidence-based treatment and care. All countries worldwide are failing in this basic objective. Action to address this problem should be balanced, as a priority, with research to improve treatment options and quality of care.

- 2015 Springeredited by Connie Watkins Bales, Julie L. Locher, Edward Saltzman.This is the new and fully revised third edition of the well-received text that is the benchmark book in the field of nutrition and aging. The editors (specialists in geriatric nutrition, medical sociology, and clinical nutrition, respectively) and contributors (a panel of recognized academic nutritionists, geriatricians, clinicians, and other scientists) have added a number of new chapters and have thoroughly updated the widely acclaimed second edition. This third edition provides fresh perspectives and the latest scientific and clinical developments on the interaction of nutrition with age-associated disease and provides practical, evidence-based options to enhance this at-risk population?s potential for optimal health and disease prevention.

- 2015 SpringerJames S. Powers, editor.Healthcare Changes and the Affordable Care Act: A Physician Call to Action provides guidance, examples, and information on processes and timelines for physicians based on the implementation of The Affordable Care Act (ACA) that was established in 2010. This volume focuses on how geriatricians and other healthcare professionals can be engaged in responding to the roll-out of the ACA in their communities, and through this engagement assume leadership roles in local hospitals, healthcare organizations, and medical societies to advance quality improvement and new models of care for older adults. In-depth chapters provide an update on quality improvement efforts at the state level as well as changes in Medicaid financing and the significant impact this will have for older adults, particularly dual-eligibles. Many elements of the ACA are yet to be rolled out and many healthcare decisions are yet to be made. Healthcare Changes and the Affordable Care Act: A Physician Call to Action will guide healthcare decision makers and help them to play a leadership role in advancing quality care for older adults in our changing healthcare environment.

It presents an update of existing literature, reflecting the current science of elderly patients with stable angina, acute coronary syndromes, and patients who go on to receive coronary artery bypass grafting procedures. Evidence is often limited or non-existent in the elderly patient group. As such, the main challenge for further research is to define the role of geriatric preconditions and their impact on outcomes. This book aims to clarify if existing cardiological outcome values such as mortality can be applied to elderly patients, or if other values are more suitable parameters for measuring interventional success. Interventional Cardiology in the Elderly discusses the epidemiological, pathophysiological and ethical aspects of each of these topics and is hence an essential resource for all practicing interventional cardiologists.

- 2013The findings suggest that the U.S. public is not particularly worried about the gradual rise in the number of older Americans. Nearly nine-in-ten adults surveyed say that "having more elderly people in the population" is either a good thing for society (41%) or does not make much difference (47%). Just 10% see this trend as a bad thing.

- 2015 SpringerGil Atzmon, PhD editor.The release of the complete version of the human genome sequence in 2003 has paved the way for defining gene function and genetic background for phenotypic variation in humans and allowed us to study the aging process in a new light. This new volume results from that research and focuses on the genetic and epigenetic process of aging. While the interpretation of the genome data is still in its initial stages, this new volume looks at the evolving understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in cellular processes, gene function associated with complex traits, epigenetic components involve in gene control and the creation of hypothesis-free genome-wide approaches. Longevity Genes: A Blueprint for Aging explores the genetic and genomic elements that can maintain a long life such as DNA damage mechanisms, epigenetics and the way we can use this knowledge to generate customized treatments. It touches on some of the multidisciplinary approaches as well as genomic-wide association technology used to analyze complex traits. This book describes the hunt for genes affecting complex traits using a high throughput technology, with adequate consideration for the selection of an appropriate population, applications of statistical genetics and computational biology, and most importantly, considering phenotype-genotype association studies. Longevity Genes provides coverage of not only established aspects of genetics and aging, but also new approaches and perceptions in this important area of research.Also available: Print – 2015

- Meeting the needs of older adults with serious illness : challenges and opportunities in the age of health care reform2014 SpringerAmy S. Kelley, Diane E. Meier, editors.Meeting the Needs of Older Adults with Serious Illness: Challenges and Opportunities in the Age of Health Care Reform provides an introduction to the principles of palliative care, describes current models of delivering palliative care across care settings, and examines opportunities in the setting of healthcare policy reform for palliative care to improve outcomes for patients, families and healthcare institutions. The United States is currently facing a crisis in health care marked by unsustainable spending and quality that is poor relative to international benchmarks. Yet this is also a critical time of opportunity. Because of its focus on quality of care, the Affordable Care Act is poised to expand access to palliative care services for the sickest, most vulnerable, and therefore most costly, 5% of patients- a small group who nonetheless drive about 50% of all healthcare spending. Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness, whatever the diagnosis or stage of illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Research has demonstrated palliative care?s positive impact on health care value. Patients (and family caregivers) receiving palliative care experience improved quality of life, better symptom management, lower rates of depression and anxiety, and improved survival. Because patient and family needs are met, crises are prevented, thereby directly reducing need for emergency department and hospital use and their associated costs. An epiphenomenon of better quality of care, the lower costs associated with palliative care have been observed in multiple studies. Meeting the Needs of Older Adults with Serious Illness: Challenges and Opportunities in the Age of Health Care Reform, a roadmap for effective policy and program design, brings together expert clinicians, researchers and policy leaders, who tackle key areas where real-world policy options to improve access to quality palliative care could have a substantial role in improving value.

To date treatment has focused on cognitive and behavioural symptoms and their management, but the physical side has been neglected. Physical comorbidity is extremely common in people with dementia and leads to excess disability and reduced quality of life for the affected person and their family. Physical comorbidity is often treatable if not reversible. Epilepsy, delirium, falls, oral disease, malnutrition, frailty, incontinence, sleep disorders and visual dysfunction are found to occur more frequently in dementia sufferers. Physical Comorbidities of Dementia describes how these may present and gives detailed information and evidence-based recommendations on how to recognise and manage these conditions. Written by clinicians, each chapter deals with a separate condition accompanied by a list of recommendations for management. Physical Comorbidities of Dementia provides practical explanations and solutions to help all healthcare professionals to improve care for people with dementia"--Provided by publisher.

It describes the most current diagnostic tools, laboratory methods and technology, and suggests ways of prevention and treatment to emphasize the concept of the bench-to-bedside approach. Studies on Alzheimer's Disease provides thorough coverage of emerging technology and medical applications including discussions of biomarkers and antioxidants as therapeutic agents, and several more relevant aspects. In addition, this book promotes the concept of using biomarkers representative of oxidative stress reactions and free-radical damage, as well as describing the effects of antioxidants in treating disease in clinical trials. This content is invaluable to both researchers studying the development of and clinicians treating patients with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease.

- 2013The gradual increase in longevity in the United States and elsewhere has already brought about a slow-motion revolution in nearly every sector of society, from health care to housing to employment. But if radical life extension moves from the realm of fantasy to reality, that revolution will pick up considerable speed. Extending human life spans beyond those of even the oldest of our ancestors would raise a host of new social, political, economic, environmental, moral and other questions. Religious organizations have traditionally played an important role in helping people think through end-of-life matters and respond to significant social changes. But since life extension has not made the journey from fantasy to fact, there has been little official or even quasi-official guidance in this area from churches and other religious groups.

The World report on ageing and health outlines a framework for action to foster Healthy Ageing built around the new concept of functional ability. This will require a transformation of health systems away from disease based curative models and towards the provision of older-person-centred and integrated care. It will require the development, sometimes from nothing, of comprehensive systems of long term care."--Page 4 of cover.Also available: Print – 2015
