      Authors: Brandon C. Yarns; Tongtong A. Zhu, Ali Najafian Jazi
      Abstract: Chronic pain remains a serious healthcare challenge, particularly for older adults who suffer substantial disability and are susceptible to serious risks from pain medications and invasive procedures. Psychotherapy is a promising option for older adults with chronic pain, since it does not contribute to medical or surgical risks. However, standard psychotherapies for chronic pain, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness-based interventions, produce only modest and time-limited benefits for older adults.

      Authors: Steven M. Albert
      Abstract: In their comprehensive review and call to action, Jimenez and colleagues define a central challenge in psychiatry: how to remove the pernicious effect of racism from the diagnosis and treatment of vulnerable minority populations when institutional psychiatry, from diagnostic algorithms to care models, is built on the legacy of racism. Their review clearly identifies the sources and ramifying effects of racism on the mental health of older African Americans, Asians, and Latinos. Because the authors have developed and tested mental health interventions for minority populations, they are also in a good position to advise on strategies to combat such racism.

      Abstract: Neurocognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), Lewy body dementia (LBD), and frontotemporal dementia (FTD), are complex, multifaceted disorders. Beyond the significant and progressive disease-defining cognitive deficits, neuropsychiatric symptoms and behavioral manifestations are prevalent over the course of these neurocognitive disorders. [1,2] The majority of patients with a neurocognitive disorder will exhibit neuropsychiatry symptoms over the course of the disease, especially at the major neurocognitive stage.

      Authors: Dilip V. Jeste; Danielle K. Glorioso, Colin A. Depp, Ellen E. Lee, Rebecca E. Daly, Dylan J. Jester, Barton W. Palmer, Brent Mausbach
      Abstract: Stress and loneliness are biologically toxic factors with adverse effects on mental and physical health. The 2018 Gallup World Poll found a 25% to 40% increase in stress, worry, and anger in the US from 2008 to 2018 (1). Loneliness is associated with considerable distress (2), and older adults are vulnerable to loneliness due to losses, physical decline, and social isolation. The COVID-19 pandemic led to increased social isolation, though some older adults with higher levels of resilience and wisdom faced the pandemic with greater fortitude than younger adults (3).

      Authors: Charles M. Lepkowsky; Herbert M. Janklow
      Abstract: For more than forty years, delirium (defined as an acute confusional state) and post-operative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) have been observed in over 20% of hospitalized older adults, especially following acute trauma, cardiac surgery, TIA, stroke, and the use of anesthesia [1]. Delirium often goes unrecognized, increasing risk for poor outcome and post-discharge complications including injury and death [2]. These risks can be mitigated by utilizing brief cognitive screening instruments prior to hospital discharge [3].

      Abstract: I had a final pre-retirement visit recently with one of my long-term patients. He is a 14 year old boy whose mother is a domestic abuse survivor who built a new life after being homeless with her son. I helped him and his mother navigate a variety of social, financial, emotional and educational challenges. He has had way too many losses in his young life and was not happy about this being our final visit, but his mother told me that he had said to her recently, “Dr. Coulter is the only doctor who sees the whole me.”

      Authors: Noah Berens; Scott YH Kim
      Abstract: Depression is common at the end of life, and there is longstanding concern that it may affect terminally ill patients’ decisions to request physician-assisted death (PAD). However, it is difficult for clinicians to determine the role of depression in a patient's PAD request. A recent case series described rapid responses to intranasal ketamine in three patients with terminal illness and comorbid depression who had requested PAD. One patient withdrew her request (which, in retrospect, had been driven by her depression) while the others maintained their requests; in all three, the rapid relief clarified the role of depression in the patients’ decision-making.

      Abstract: The association between poor dentation and physical health problems has been known for decades yet is underappreciated by the medical community.1. The medical and dental professions have largely worked in parallel yet barely recognizing that they are working on the same body with the many pathophysiological connections, for example cardiac disease and psychiatric disorders. A review of past issues of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry identified one paper published in a supplement in which oral health was included in the title.

      Abstract: In 2003, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published Unequal Treatment, which elevated racial and ethnic healthcare disparities to the forefront of clinical and policy attention.1 However, since its publication, little progress has been made to lessen the disparities in mental healthcare, especially among older adults of color.2-6 Despite routine documentation, racial and ethnic disparities in mental healthcare remain poorly explained. If we are to eliminate these disparities, then we must acknowledge the root and persistent cause of mental health inequities: racism.

      Authors: Shawn M. McClintock; Christopher C. Abbott
      Abstract: Major depressive disorder (MDD) in older adults is a severe neuropsychiatric illness that results in significant disability, morbidity, and mortality1. While antidepressant treatment strategies have evolved considerably in recent years, many maybe ineffective and unable to alleviate depressive symptoms2. For such treatment-resistant and difficult to treat depression (TRD), the main and most effective treatment option is electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Indeed, for older adults with MDD and TRD, converging evidence collected over decades, including the relatively recently completed National Institute of Mental Health supported Prolonging Remission in Depressed Elderly (PRIDE) Study, substantiates the safety and efficacy of ECT3,4,5.

      Abstract: Brain Capital is a new framework for change which prioritizes brain skills and brain health as indispensable drivers of the knowledge economy. Smith et al. (1) defined “Brain Capital” as the aggregate of “knowledge, creative skills, and optimal brain health that people accumulate through their lives and enabling them to realize their potential as productive members of the society”. Traditionally, Brain Capital focuses on the multiplicative effect of health and economy across the lifespan. But Brain Capital can be conceptually linked to an aging population.

      Abstract: Reduced cerebral blood flow (CBF) is considered to be one of the potential underlying mechanisms for cognitive impairment and dementia.1 There are very few longitudinal studies demonstrating the role of cerebral perfusion on cognition. One study reported an association of lower CBF at baseline with the decline in processing speed and memory in healthy elderly participants in 4-year follow-up,2 whereas another study reported a decline in memory domain in participants with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in 2.7-year follow-up.

      Abstract: The global number of people living with dementia has been rising by population aging. In the last 25 years, the number of people with dementia doubled, and 50 million people live with dementia.1 By 2050, it is estimated that the number of dementia will increase by three times and reach 150 million.2 Modifiable risk factors, including education, lifestyles, and social networks, reportedly contribute to 40% of dementia onset.3 It is anticipated to prevent or delay the onset of dementia by addressing the modifiable risk factors.

      Authors: Dr. Donna Marie Fick
      Abstract: Can delirium be detected in persons with dementia' At one time, many believed that it was not important or even possible to recognize delirium in persons with dementia. Early studies of delirium excluded persons with dementia or used capacity to consent as a requirement to enroll in studies, thus entering selection bias into who was enrolled in studies of delirium.1-3 Other work in the field of delirium and dementia focused on the need to differentiate and separate the two syndromes and did not appreciate the extent to which they occur together and the importance of early recognition and prevention of delirium superimposed on dementia (DSD).

      Authors: William M. McDonald
      Abstract: Somewhere between 15 percent and 65 percent of elders living in nursing homes and residential care facilities have significant depression and anxiety1 and these symptoms have only intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic2. Depression and anxiety are major contributors to decreased quality of life for older adults and are associated with poor health outcomes, social isolation, functional decline including premature death and increasing the burden on nursing home staff and caregivers3, 4. Mood disorders in late life are also often unrecognized clinically and more likely to have a complicated clinical course and incomplete recovery and5.

      Authors: Pim Cuijpers
      Abstract: Hundreds of randomised trials have shown that psychological interventions are effective in the treatment of depression.1 That is also true in older adults. Although the effects of psychological treatments are significantly less effective in children and adolescents, there are no significant differences in effects between age groups when patients have reached adulthood.2 Psychotherapy is as effective in older adults as it is in younger adults, and there is now enough evidence that it also works equally well in older old adults (75 and older).

      Authors: Gary J. Kennedy
      Abstract: For decades the use of opioids both prescribed and otherwise have been the focus of intense scrutiny in system of public health as well as criminal justice. Opioid related deaths have been climbing (1) with over 100,000 opioid related deaths in the United States in 2021. It is uncertain how many were intentional and how many accidental. Because prescribed opioids acutely dim one's awareness of pain it is reasonable to question their longer-term effects on cognitive risk. However existing studies offer conflicting results with only heavy chronic opioid use predictive.

      Authors: Daniel Rosen
      Abstract: Weber and colleagues1 in their article, Older Adult Substance Use Treatment First-time Admissions between 2008 and 2018, document trends that researchers and practitioners who focus on older adults with substance use disorders have long predicted. Not only are an increasing number of older adults with substance use disorders entering treatment, but the majority are seeking services to primarily address a problem with an illicit substance other than alcohol. These findings, though long expected through the tracking of substance use by age cohorts2, indicate the need for substance use disorder clinics that are age appropriate and culturally competent.

  • Social networks of older schizophrenia patients: fit for later life'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Paul D. Meesters
      Abstract: For most of us a flourishing social network ranks high among what we value in life. Social connectedness gives individuals meaningful roles that provide self-esteem and purpose to life. Conversely, social isolation (both actual and perceived) is associated with increased risk for early mortality with a magnitude comparable to risk factors such as smoking and obesity, although aging attenuates this impact1. With aging, social networks inevitably change. In contrast to general belief the net result needs not be negative, as reduction in size may be compensated for by higher quality of remaining relationships.

      Abstract: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and fifth-leading cause of death among Americans aged 65 and older (1). Rates for AD and other forms of dementia are predicted to triple by 2050 and bring $1.1 trillion in direct annual costs to the economy (2). As risk for AD increases with age, projective models have suggested that delaying onset by two years could reduce nearly 2 million prevalent cases of dementia over the next few decades and significantly alleviate the burden on public health (3).

      Abstract: Nearly 2% of people older than 55 years suffer from major depression (1). Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is the most effective treatment for late-life depression (LLD), with remission rates ranging from 60 to 80% (2). However, despite continuation treatment using medication or ECT, half of the patients experience relapse within one year following a successful acute course of ECT (3). Studies assessing post-ECT relapse over a longer period of time (i.e., longer than one year) are scarce, especially in patients suffering from LLD (4, 5).

      Abstract: Depression is a common clinical syndrome among older adults living in residential aged care facilities (RACFs). Clinically significant symptoms of depression, as measured by the Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15), were present in 49 (50.5%) of 97 older adults recently admitted to an aged care facility in Australia,1 with data from the US National Nursing Home Survey suggesting that a depressive disorder affects at least 1 in every 3 residents.2 Despite its high prevalence, the presence of depression among aged care residents may go unnoticed, so that appropriate treatment may not be made available.

      Authors: Carl I Cohen
      Abstract: Older adults with schizophrenia (OAS) have more behavioral problems, impairment in self-care, and deficits in social and community living skills compared to their age peers and other older persons with mental illness.1 Consequently, OAS often require instrumental assistance (tangible aid) and emotional support; and the frequency and composition of contacts vary depending on need. Moreover, loss of instrumental and emotional support is associated with higher rates of physical frailty, impaired cognition, and disability.

      Abstract: Browne & Mohamed1 evaluated Black-white treatment disparities in older people with schizophrenia enrolled in intensive community-based treatment in Connecticut's Veterans Health Administration (VHA). After finding few racial disparities in service delivery, clinical, and functional outcome trajectories over six months, the authors concluded that “provision of high-intensity services in an equal-access setting may reduce health disparities between Black and white older veterans with serious mental illnesses.” We challenge this statement: from a health equity standpoint, intervention effectiveness should be evaluated by the degree to which baseline health inequities are eliminated post-treatment.

      Abstract: Noise, noise, noise. Every scientist confronts challenges measuring what they intend to measure. Variability from extraneous factors pesters us all. Blood pressure (BP) is among the most difficult human variables to measure due to noise from a multitude of factors. First and foremost is measurement error. We use a peripheral device (or the human ear!) to guess at intra-arterial pressures based upon fluctuations in pulsatile vibrations. Adding to this imprecision, biological variation is constant since BP naturally rises and falls with respiration, posture, physical activity, meals, bladder tension, mood, and time of day.

Nkodo and colleagues find that telemedicine is acceptable and feasible for both patients with BPSD and their caregivers, decreases the frequency and intensity of BPSD, and improves caregiver's perceived wellbeing and mental health. Given the time it takes to complete a Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA)-compliant systematic review, Nkodo and colleagues do not include articles with data collected after the start of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) global pandemic.

      Abstract: While cognitive and functional deficits of Alzheimer Disease and Related Disorders (ADRD) have been the mainstay of clinical characterization, behavioral and psychiatric disturbances have more recently been acknowledged. The 2011 McKhan criteria gave weight to these with the inclusion of “changes in personality, behavior, or comportment” as part of the “cognitive” criteria, and similar symptoms were added to the ICD and Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 criteria.1, 2 Among the most problematic and debilitating of behavioral disturbances is agitation, which was given a provisional consensus definition in a 2015 publication by an International Psychogeriatric Association (IPA) working group.

      Abstract: Bipolar disorder (BD) is characterized by two distinct types of mood symptoms, depression and mania/hypomania. However, some individuals with BD experience a ‘mixed’ state in which manic or hypomanic and depressive symptoms are present concurrently. The most recent version of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) includes a ‘with mixed features’ specifier that applies to a manic or hypomanic episode with three or more depressive symptoms (or to a depressive episode with three or more manic symptoms).

      Abstract: Delirium and dementia are common causes of cognitive impairment in older adults. Sometimes referred to as an acute confusional state, delirium is characterized by inattention, cognitive dysfunction, and an altered level of consciousness – all of which can be present in various dementia syndromes as well. Unlike dementia, however, which is typically marked by insidious and progressive loss of cognitive and functional abilities, the mental status changes associated with delirium develop over a short period of time and can fluctuate in severity during the course of a single day.

      Abstract: Several studies suggest that depression may increase the risk of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease (AD).1 While potential mechanisms remain an area of active investigation, it has been hypothesized that cerebrovascular health may underlie changes in psychiatric and cognitive functioning.1 Consistent with this hypothesis, growing evidence suggests that depression in late life is often comorbid with cerebrovascular disease and cognitive impairment.1–3 Additionally, the relationship between depression and vascular risk factors, like hypertension, may be bidirectional, with therapeutic implications for cognitive impairment and mental health.

      Abstract: As the population's life expectancy gradually increases, cognitive impairment and dementia are both prevalent conditions and account for enormous personal and economic burdens. A recent meta-analysis and systematic review has claimed a proportion of 15% of the Chinese older adults suffering from cognitive impairment and China is facing severe challenges in terms of the medical demands for cognitive disorders[1]. Due to the lack of effective treatments for cognitive impairment and dementia, prevention strategy targeting to delay cognitive decline is of great significance[2].

      Abstract: Based on national statistics, the prevalence of substance use disorders has remained stable since 2015 for adults age 26 and older1, but trends in older adult (defined as aged 55 and older) substance use disorders (SUDs) have not been categorized in these large population-based studies. People aged 55 and older make up nearly 30% of the population in the United States (US). Amid an ongoing epidemic of overdose deaths, understanding trends in substance use in all segments of the population is important.

      Abstract: Depressive disorders are common among older adults, with prevalence slightly higher in rural populations than urban populations, though the significance of these differences varies in the literature (1-3). Almost one-fifth of older adults live in rural areas (4). Compared to older adults in urban communities, rural older adults have higher rates of isolation (5), chronic medical illness (6), depression (2); experience greater difficulty accessing transportation services (7); and are subject to minimal service infrastructure (8, 9).

      Abstract: The number of older adults in the United States is expected to increase substantially over the next three decades.1 This rise coupled with the prevalence of mental health disorders and low treatment utilization among older adults has been described as an impending geriatric mental health crisis.2–4 Within the older adult population with mental health conditions, significant health disparities exist between Black and White Americans. Specifically, Black older adults are less likely to initiate mental health treatment and receive adequate care than White older adults.

      Abstract: As the population ages in many countries around the world, the number of people suffering from aging‐related diseases (such as dementia) is growing1. Although cognitive symptoms are commonly considered to be the hallmark of dementia, up to 90% of patients usually also present a broad variety of behavioral and psychological symptoms2. These behavioral and psychological symptoms in dementia (BPSD) have a significant impact on the patient's personal independence in daily life and social relationships.

      Abstract: In this issue of the Journal, Murri et al. (1) present results of their study developing Risk Prediction Models (RPMs) for prediction of onset of late-life depression (LLD) within two years. Readers will learn much from this article. First, the methodology of RPM development is complex, and the authors of the article explain well the need for such models from both clinical and policy standpoints as well as their approach to the creation of RPMs.

      Abstract: The importance of genetic influences in dementia has become increasingly recognised in recent years, with more than 40 genetic loci identified as risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (AD) (1). These genes are involved in pathways such as tau binding proteins, amyloid precursor protein metabolism, immunity and lipid metabolism (2). Genetic risk factors have also been identified for dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), including polymorphisms in APOE, GBA, SNCA and BIN1 and TMEM175 (3).

      Abstract: Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and yoga have been shown to decrease worry and anxiety. CBT is the most efficacious non-pharmacological treatment for worry (10) and has the strongest evidence base for treating late-life worry and related symptoms (11) although some studies have failed to demonstrate a superior effect of CBT to active comparison interventions.(12,13) Regarding the selection of yoga to target worry, following our previous randomized controlled trial (RCT),(14) participants provided feedback that they were interested in yoga as a treatment option for worry and anxiety and would like to be able to choose their treatment.

      Abstract: Over the last decade, multiple reports have signaled the association of late-life anxiety and its phenotypes with increased morbidity and mortality. A 2014 study of 6,019 participants showed that higher anxiety symptoms were prospectively associated with increased risk of incident stroke independent of all other risk factors, including depression (1). The independent effect of anxiety on increasing the risk of cognitive decline has been documented in several recent studies (2), including longitudinal studies indicating an increased association between amyloid burden and anxiety symptoms in cognitively normal older adults (3).

      Abstract: Over half of depressed older adults do not achieve remission with first-line antidepressant treatment1, 2. Additionally, only half of older adults improve with augmentation or switch to another medication1. Several factors may lead to poor treatment response3, including incorrect diagnosis, comorbid physical or psychiatric conditions, and somatic symptoms which overlap with other medical illnesses3, 4. Older adults also experience psychosocial challenges such as isolation and limited social support which may interfere with depression treatment response5.

      Abstract: As the older population grows rapidly, the maintenance and promotion of healthy aging become a key public health issue worldwide. Healthy aging features not only physical health but also cognitive health, which is vital for an individual's quality of life and well-being.1 Evidence suggests that cognitive health is associated with multiple factors, including basic determinants such as genetic and neurobiological variants, as well as modifiable factors such as education, lifestyle, physical inactivity, depression, and social isolation.

      Abstract: Anxiety is a prominent non-motor symptom in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, with a global average prevalence of 31% (1). The prevalence of anxiety in PD is three times higher than that in healthy adults of the same age and in patients with other neurological diseases (2). On average, 13% of PD patients experience clinically significant anxiety that does not meet criteria for anxiety disorder as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of Mental Disorders and are typically classified as having unspecified anxiety according to the DSM criteria (3).
