Description : This book is a practical resource that will support the delivery of holistic mental health interventions in the primary and community care setting for older people. Primary care delivery is discussed in relation to both functional mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, and psychotic and personality disorders, and acquired organic mental disorders of old age, such as dementia, cognitive impairments, and delirium. Careful consideration is paid to the complex relationship between mental and somatic health problems, as well as the impacts of multimorbidity and polypharmacy. Further topics include, for example, epidemiology, wider determinants of health, different care models, history taking, neurocognitive and capacity assessment, and pharmacological, psychological, and physical interventions. The wider goals of the book are to support the development of community resilience and self-care in older people; to promote universal access and equity for older people in order to enable them to achieve or recover the highest attainable standard of health, regardless of age, gender, or social position; and to promote pathways to care for older people with mental health problems respecting their autonomy, independence, human rights, and the importance of the life-course approach. This book will be an invaluable resource for all professionals who work with older adults with mental health problems and those training in these fields including physicians, psychiatrists, family doctors, geriatricians, general practitioners, nurses, psychologists, neurologists, occupational therapists, social workers, support workers and community health and social care workers.

Description : This book provides a comprehensive and systematic state-of-the science review of major primary care delivery models, how they address specific needs of older adults, and available evidence for their efficacy. Written by experts in the field, this book explores the patient-centered medical home model (PCMH) in depth and dives into the complexities of the “medical neighborhood”. It describes and analyzes primary care specifically directed toward special, complex populations, such as the Health Home for safety net patients with mental health needs, and intensive primary care for older adults. It reviews an array of primary care models related to dual eligible patients including the GRACE primary care consultation model and PACE models. It describes primary care with Advanced Practice Nurses and Physician Assistants and explores in-depth the massive effort within the VA to develop the Patient Activated Care Team (PACT), a VA form of the PCMH that also has several offshoots that address complex older veterans and veterans with severe mental illness. Finally, it illuminates rarely discussed primary care that occurs within the home and within long-term care. Throughout the entire book, experts navigate the workforce, care quality, and financing challenges of primary care for older adults. Primary Care for Older Adults is a valuable resource for clinicians, researchers, patients, caregivers and their advocates, and policy makers who have an interest in designing, promoting, and implementing high quality primary care for older adults.

Description : The process of aging is frequently associated with changes in the physical and mental functioning of older adults, challenging their autonomy and rendering them vulnerable to exploitation. Certain illnesses that are more common in older adults can affect their capacity to function independently. These include the capacity to make medical decisions, live independently, manage finances, to name a few. Healthcare professionals, especially psychiatrists are often entrusted with the responsibility of assessing an older adult’s capacity to perform one or more functions. This makes it imperative for them to be cognizant of these issues, understand the need for these evaluations, and be able to conduct them in a comprehensive manner. Another way of protecting an older person’s rights and facilitating a life based on their own decisions even after they lose decision making capacity is Advanced Health Care Planning (AHCP). Health care professionals are required to initiate a discussion about AHCP with their patients and their families and review it periodically. Lastly, the older adults incarcerated in prisons is a group that is growing in numbers. They have unique needs at the intersection of the geriatric and forensic services, but are often marginalized by both services. The combination of poor quality of life and increasing costs makes the care of older adults in the criminal justice system makes this topic an important public health concern. There is a pressing need for better training of prison staff in issues of geriatric psychiatry. Assessment of criminal responsibility and competence to stand trial in aging offenders are other complex but under-studied issues. This proposed book will provide a comprehensive view of ethical, medicolegal, and forensic issues that will be useful in clinical practice. There will be three sub-sections, each focusing on ethical, medicolegal and forensic issues respectively. The first section will focus on ethical issues. Its first chapters will provide an overview of the how age and the process of aging influence decision-making and introduce unique ethical dimensions to clinical care. This will be followed by a discussion of the concepts of informed consent and capacity evaluation. The next chapters will focus on common scenarios that arise in the care of elderly patients and offer a practical approach to understanding and managing them. These will include assessments of the capacity to make medical decisions, the capacity to live independently, manage finances, drive a vehicle, have sexual relations etc. A chapter on ethical issues specific to dementia will outline issues related to diagnostic disclosure and genetic testing. Research ethics issues in geriatric psychiatry will also be outlined. The next section of the book will focus on surrogate decision making in an older adult who has been deemed to lack the capacity to serve one or more functions independently. The first chapters in this sub-section will focus on patient directed advance health care planning tools, namely, living will and power of attorney. This will be followed by an overview of default surrogate making. Guardianship will subsequently be covered. A separate chapter will cover the issue of elder abuse and discuss an approach to assessing it. The last section of the book will cover forensic issues in geriatric psychiatry. The first chapter will discuss aging older adults in the criminal justice system from an epidemiological perspective. The growing numbers of incarcerated older adults, their illness burden, the challenges in the diagnosis and management of neurocognitive disorders in the prison setting will be elucidated. The following chapter will discuss competence to stand trial with reference to elderly offenders. This will be followed by a discussion of the concepts of medical reprieve, compassionate release as well as model programs and policies currently in the works for older incarcerated adults.

Description : “This is one of the best mental health and aging books I have ever read. [It] is one that I will turn to often in my teaching of doctoral students, and in my work with older adults. One of the phenomenal aspects of this book is the research reviews; which are in-depth and broad in their scope. It is clear that Lee Hyer is an exceptional scholar-clinician and geropsychologist..”--Peter A. Lichtenberg, PhD Drawing from current research and clinical practice, this text espouses a unique interdisciplinary approach to the assessment and treatment of psychosocial impairment in older adults. This approach, called “Watch and Wait,” is grounded in a "whole person" model of care rather than one that addresses symptoms or syndromes in isolation. This model advocates relationship building, prevention, psychoeducation, multipronged interventions for comorbid problems, and communication. It does so in the context of a multidisciplinary health care team, the patient, and family. The model encompasses five core factors of psychosocial impairment in older adults: depression, anxiety, cognitive deficits, adjustment or life problems, and health issues. Considered together, they provide an integrated understanding of the older adult that is more likely than single-disorder models to facilitate successful outcomes for common psychosocial difficulties that occur in later life. The book describes in depth the unique components and complex interactive influences of these five factors as they apply to older adults seeking mental health treatment. A cornerstone of the author’s approach is treatment based on stringent care-based assessment and thorough monitoring of empirically supported interventions. Each factor is considered individually from its empirically supported basis as well as its interaction with the other factors. Distinct treatment modules are isolated for each factor and assembled to provide the optimal pathway for clinical treatment. The text also addresses the unique difficulties of diagnosing the aging population, the pitfalls of existing treatments, and the need for brain-based models for care. Key Features: Advocates for integrative, interdisciplinary care and primary care involvement for the older adult Emphasizes core components of care: depression, anxiety, cognition, pain/sleep/health issues, adjustment in the community Demonstrates how a single-problem approach for older adults with psychiatric problems is not effective or efficient care Espouses a "Watch and Wait" paradigm of care, based on person-centered diagnosis and careful monitoring of treatment Translates and integrates current research findings with clarity Covers use of SSRIs and other medications, suicide, subsyndromal states, issues involving cost of care for the older patient, among other topics Plentiful case examples

Description : ABSTRACT: Research suggests that more than ten percent of older adults experience behavioral health problems (including mental health problems and/or substance abuse). However, very few actually receive care from a behavioral health care provider or even a primary care provider. One major barrier to accessing and receiving care is the feeling of perceived stigma commonly associated with behavioral health problems. The present study examined the relationships among attitudinal variables, feelings of stigma, and behavioral health outcomes over time in an elderly population with the secondary analysis of data collected for a previously implemented research study, the Primary Care Research in Substance Abuse and Mental Health for Elderly (PRISM-E) study. The PRISM-E research project was a multisite, randomized, comparative trial examining two models of care for persons aged 65 and older with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and/or at-risk drinking. A total of 2,022 participants over the age of 65 were included in the database. Over half of the participants indicated that they had some feelings of stigma associated with mental health and substance abuse issues. An examination of the measure used in the PRISM-E study to measure stigma revealed the presence of two factors, or components, of stigma that we labeled Perceived Stigma and Comfort Level. Statistical analyses of the data demonstrated that feelings of stigma are not constant and can indeed change over time. However, in this sample, perceived stigma was not related to behavioral health outcomes, such as a reduction in symptoms of depression, anxiety, and/or at-risk drinking. Limitations of this study include the possibility that the sample may be biased due to the fact that all participants were under the care of a primary care provider and all agreed to enter treatment for their behavioral health problem. Implications of the findings are that it is possible to influence feelings of stigma and previous research has demonstrated that lower levels of feelings of stigma in older adults as well as other age groups may lead to improvements in accessing and engaging in behavioral health treatment.

Description : Designated a Doody's Core Title! "This volume is one of the best practice-oriented books on mental health and aging that I have read. I hope that the coming years will see substantive developments in outreach to depressed older adults. This book lays a solid and credible foundation for these efforts." --PsycCRITIQUES Late life depression has become increasingly prevalent among older adults. This book presents guidelines to help enable aging and social service programs to establish a mental health education and screening program focused on late-life depression. This 2-time award-winning model presented in this book offers a practical and culturally-sensitiveapproach to mental health education which can be adapted by service programs seeking to identify clinical depression among their older adult clientele. Additionally, this program offers professionals serving older adults an opportunity to increase their knowledge about clinical depression among older adults; develop the skills necessary to identify the signs of clinical depression and suicidal ideation; and create long-standing, collaborative relationships across the professional disciplines of aging, social services, medical and mental health services. Older adults who participate in this program are able to: increase their awareness of the role of mental health in their overall quality of life identify both long-standing and newly emergent symptoms of clinical depression, a serious mental health condition connect to treatment providers within their own communities

Description : This open access textbook represents a vital contribution to global health education, offering insights into health promotion as part of patient care for bachelor’s and master’s students in health care (nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, radiotherapists, social care workers etc.) as well as health care professionals, and providing an overview of the field of health science and health promotion for PhD students and researchers. Written by leading experts from seven countries in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, it first discusses the theory of health promotion and vital concepts. It then presents updated evidence-based health promotion approaches in different populations (people with chronic diseases, cancer, heart failure, dementia, mental disorders, long-term ICU patients, elderly individuals, families with newborn babies, palliative care patients) and examines different health promotion approaches integrated into primary care services. This edited scientific anthology provides much-needed knowledge, translating research into guidelines for practice. Today’s medical approaches are highly developed; however, patients are human beings with a wholeness of body-mind-spirit. As such, providing high-quality and effective health care requires a holistic physical-psychological-social-spiritual model of health care is required. A great number of patients, both in hospitals and in primary health care, suffer from the lack of a holistic oriented health approach: Their condition is treated, but they feel scared, helpless and lonely. Health promotion focuses on improving people’s health in spite of illnesses. Accordingly, health care that supports/promotes patients’ health by identifying their health resources will result in better patient outcomes: shorter hospital stays, less re-hospitalization, being better able to cope at home and improved well-being, which in turn lead to lower health-care costs. This scientific anthology is the first of its kind, in that it connects health promotion with the salutogenic theory of health throughout the chapters. the authors here expand the understanding of health promotion beyond health protection and disease prevention. The book focuses on describing and explaining salutogenesis as an umbrella concept, not only as the key concept of sense of coherence.

Description : This book provides a comprehensive account of the current developments in mental health services for older people and describes a robust model for evaluating health and social care to improve these services. Drawing on international experience, it provides accounts of the development of mental health services for older people in the UK, Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia. The approaches to evaluating health and social care in these countries are all outlined, and a comparative analysis is given. The services currently offered are patchy, so there is a pressing need for effective mechanisms to be introduced in order to monitor quality - this book will show you how. Managers and commissioners working within Primary Care Trusts, NHS Trusts, Strategic Health Authorities, geriatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists and allied health and social care professionals will find this book valuable reading.
