      Abstract: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an irreversible inflammatory respiratory condition that restricts the flow of air through the respiratory tract (Vestbo et al., 2013). According to the predictions of the World Health Organization (2018), COPD will be the third leading cause of death in Korea in 2030. The prevalence of COPD in Korea is 13.5%, and>20% for men and 6.1% for women older than 40 (Jeon & Oh, 2015). The prevalence of COPD in Korea is high compared with other countries. In North Asia, the prevalence of COPD among people age ≥40 years is 10.9% in Japan

      Abstract: Dehydration is a serious problem for older adults, which occurs as a precipitating and comorbid condition leading to unnecessary hospitalizations. Adults older than 65 continue to have the highest rates of admissions for dehydration as a primary diagnosis, with those older than 75 having the highest rates at 750 per 100,000 (Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality [AHRQ], 2015). The annual cost estimate for a primary diagnosis of dehydration is>$1.14 billion (Xiao, Barber, & Campbell, 2004), with secondary dehydration raising the cost of a hospitalization (Mentes & Aronow,

      Abstract: There are more than 6.2 million adults in the United States with heart failure (HF), with projected growth to>8 million by 2030, including a substantial increase in HF incidence and prevalence in older adults (Benjamin et al., 2019). Despite improvements in guideline-directed therapy for HF, it remains a frequent reason for hospitalization of older adults (Jalnapurkar et al., 2018). From 2001 to 2014, 75.3% of all adults hospitalized with a primary or secondary diagnosis of HF were age ≥65 (Akintoye et al., 2017).

It has been estimated that 5.5 million people in the United States have Alzheimer's disease, and that number is projected to triple by 2050 (Alzheimer's Association, 2017; Karlawish, Jack, Rocca, Snyder, & Carrillo, 2017).

      Abstract: Medication management in older adults with cognitive impairment (CI) is particularly challenging for geriatric practitioners (GPs) and nursing home (NH) staff. Moreover, polypharmacy is an additional common problem in this complex patient population. NH residents with CI are at high risk for polypharmacy and its prevalence increases with advanced age, disability, and recent hospitalization (Vetrano et al., 2013). Important tasks for GPs include managing complex chronic comorbidities, preventing return to acute care, and effectively reducing polypharmacy and psychotropic drug use.

  • Teaching Technology to Older Adults: Modalities Used by Student Mentors
           and Reasons for Continued Program Participation
    • Authors: Dara L. LoBuono; MS, RDN
      Abstract: Although technology is becoming embedded in society, older adults are adapting to technology at a slower rate compared to younger individuals (Pew Research Center, 2017). For instance, 90% of all American adults have used the internet; however, only 73% of older adults report having used the internet (Pew Research Center, 2017). Lack of digital adoption, known as the digital divide (van Dijk, 2006), can create disparity for older adults. Low levels of digital literacy, age-related cognitive and physical decline, and negative attitudes can influence technology adoption among older adults

      Abstract: Dementia is a neurological syndrome associated with progressive cognitive decline involving difficulties with memory, language, executive function, visuospatial perception, and disorientation, all of which influence the ability to perform activities of daily living (ADL; Alzheimer's Association, 2019). Psychological symptoms (e.g., depression, anxiety) and behavioral symptoms (e.g., agitation, aggression, wandering) are often present in persons with dementia (Alzheimer's Association, 2019), increasing distress and burden for caregivers and often leading to institutionalization (Huang, Liao, &

      Abstract: Over a 1-year period, up to 70% of residents in post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) facilities receive at least one course of systemic antibiotics, up to 75% of which may be unnecessary or inappropriate (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2017). Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common indication for which antibiotics in PALTC facilities are prescribed (Nicolle, Bentley, Garibaldi, Neuhaus, & Smith, 2000; Olsho et al., 2013). With the increasing emergence of multi-drug resistant organisms, particularly in the PALTC setting, appropriate use of antibiotics has

We encompass not only a broad array of health professions but also the rich spectrum of unique individuals practicing those professions. We are expert clinicians, researchers, advocates, and educators who connect with our country's diverse older adults because we ourselves reflect that same diversity in appearance and perspective. Putting power and potential behind equity that celebrates our differences is our greatest opportunity—but also one of our greatest challenges. At a time when more of us than ever before are

  • Using an Innovative Discussion Platform to Give Voice to Aging-Related
           Experiences: A Pilot Study
    • Authors: Andrew K. Teng; MS, BS
      Abstract: Persons age ≥65 are the fastest growing demographic. Many older adults experience aging-related changes that predispose them to impaired functioning and health-related changes, as well as being at higher risk of social isolation (Alexopoulos, 2005; Roberts, Ogunwole, Blakeslee, & Rabe, 2018). Moreover, as aging-related changes are often compounded by chronic conditions, daily health management is often complex and involves adopting self-management behaviors beneficial to health (Gerber et al., 2011).

These advances have been bolstered with the introduction of the Internet-of-Things, a term that refers to the interconnectedness of devices and sensors over the internet. As a result, SmHT have been further developed to not only provide convenient functionalities (e.g., automated lights), but

Furthermore, the U.S. Census Bureau (2010) predicts that number will double to 88 million by the year 2050, accounting for>20% of the U.S. population. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC; 2013) attribute the rapid growth in this special population to two major factors: the post-World War II baby boom and increased life expectancies of

           Practices That Reframe Aging
    • Authors: Azita Emami; PhD, MSN, RNT, RN, FAAN
      Abstract: Academic nursing leaders—deans, associate deans, department chairs, and all others with direct input into curricular development and public service options—play a key role in bringing about changes in the way current and future nurses are educated at all levels. In executing their various roles, academic nurse leaders marshal human and fiscal resources, anticipate future needs, and act as project managers of internal culture change. “In academic departments and colleges, chairs and deans can become agents of culture change because they occupy administrative positions closest to where most

  • Engaging With Aging: A Framework for Managing Daily Living
    • Authors: Doris L. Carnevali; MN, RN
      Abstract: Nursing's capacity to optimally care for older adults depends on expanding the gerontological science that underlies the development of best practices, educational changes, and policy directions (National Hartford Center for Gerontological Nursing Excellence, 2019).

    • Authors: Yan Su; MS, RN
      Abstract: To optimize older adults' functioning and quality of life and meet the anticipated societal need, the American Geriatrics Society recommends advancing knowledge on healthy aging (Friedman et al., 2019; Jacobs, 2019).

  • Advancing Our Understanding of Engaging With Aging
    • Authors: Basia Belza; PhD, RN, FAAN
      Abstract: Our knowledge about healthy aging continues to evolve. To advance the field, new paradigms need to be developed and tested that address the aging experience from the perspective of the person who is aging. The American Geriatrics Society challenged professionals to intensify educational, clinical, advocacy, and research efforts that address healthy aging from a multidimensional perspective (Friedman et al., 2019). More specifically, a key area to further develop is person-centered approaches that address older adults' goals, independence, functioning, resilience, dignity, and life
