Chronic pain is a common problem in the elderly, and is often associated with significant physical disability and psychosocial problems [].Estimates of the prevalence of chronic pain problems among community-dwelling older adults range from 58–70% [].The most common painful conditions among older adults are musculoskeletal conditions such as Cited by:   Measurement of pain in the elderly is an issue that has received limited attention.

The purpose of this review was to analyze and synthesize research findings from to that are related to pain measurement in the elderly. Based on best-evidence synthesis criteria, the review led to the selection of 15 by:   The primary target population is elderly patients with multiple chronic conditions and acute illness or those experiencing exacerbations of their chronic conditions and requiring acute hospital care.

Elderly Population from the, and National Long-Term Care Survey. As providers actively transform to value-based delivery models, they must redefine how they measure success in the larger context of population health and an expanded definition of value.

Our new Cross-Continuum Care Management Metric Picklist helps you do just that. Chronic pain is not an inevitable part of aging, but it is, unfortunately, a fairly common occurrence among those aged 65 or older.

Studies have indicated that as many as 50% of older adults who live in the community and 45% to 80% of those in nursing homes suffer from this problem.

1 Although chronic pain can have significant impact on the lives of persons of any age, it may have a. Elderly people often have multiple health conditions, take several medications and require more frequent interactions with health care providers.

In fact, the current proportion of those over 65 with at least two concurrent chronic diseases may be as high as 98%.

The proportion of both minority and older adults in the United States is growing; as a result, the older population is becoming more racially and ethnically diverse (Ford and Hatchett ; Sinclair et al.

; Federal Interagency Forum on Aging-Related Statistics ).Members of minority groups have higher rates of morbidity and mortality than do their counterparts in the general population.

In addition, Macfarlane et al found that elderly populations were more likely to be prescribed medications as their course of treatment rather than physical therapy, alternative treatments, or specialist referrals.

7 In fact, an elderly person, on average, takes approximately 9 or more medications per day, 5 increasing his or her risk of. Chronic disease affects the majority of Americans: 51 percent of adults have at least one chronic condition, and 26 percent live with multiple chronic diseases.

• The number of people with chronic conditions is increasing rapidly; byan estimated 47 percent of the nation’s population will have a chronic condition •. Not all elderly patients benefit from every preventive measure.

Choice of preventive measures is guided by whether the patient’s general condition is: Healthy. Chronically ill. Frail/complex. Healthy elderly people have minimal or no chronic disease and are functionally independent.

Primary and secondary prevention of disease and prevention. The landscape is full of challenges, but also emerging potential solutions and promising examples. Under the Affordable Care Act, federally qualified health centers (FQHCs)— which provide community-based care to uninsured and medically underserved patients—must now treat patients under a pay-for-performance model, rather than the old fee-for-service model.

Anthropometric evaluation is an essential feature of geriatric nutritional evaluation for determining malnutrition, being overweight, obesity, muscular mass loss, fat mass gain and adipose tissue redistribution. Anthropometric indicators are used to evaluate the prognosis of chronic and acute diseases, and to guide medical intervention in the elderly.

We evaluated anthropometric measurements. Improving access to health care services depends in part on ensuring that people have a usual and ongoing source of care (that is, a provider or facility where one regularly receives care).

People with a usual source of care have better health outcomes, fewer disparities, and lower costs. 7, 8, 9, Chronic wounds are a major public health challenge, but little is known about the true burden with studies reporting different estimates because of disparities in study designs and measurement methods.

This hampers efficient resource allocation, planning, and improvement of wound care. Background. In view of the growing number of elderly individuals and the expected increase of patients with two or more chronic diseases, and also due to the increased availability of new therapies and advanced medical technologies, the need of health care especially in the elderly general population is becoming a major public health concern.

According to the Pan-American Health Organization’s (PAHO) report on Innovative Care for Chronic Conditions, 76% of deaths (4 million people annually) are due to chronic conditions and only 1 of 10 people receives adequate treatment. All countries in the region show an accelerated increase in aging population, due to a better life.

Better control of hypertension among the elderly requires an increase in awareness among the population and improved effectiveness of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions.
