Therefore, appropriate prescribing and evaluating the need to continue antipsychotics are necessary to enhance optimum patient outcomes. This article discusses best practice recommendations for NPs in Canada to help ensure safe use of antipsychotic medications in the older adult population.
Both insomnia and its treatment can lead to the development of delirium in older adults. In the present case, delirium occurred after a single dose of zopiclone was given for insomnia treatment in an 84-year-old patient. Considering the case, patients and caregivers should be informed about the rare complication when zopiclone is prescribed.

We also tested whether an intervention that highlighted Confucian principles would protect Chinese older adults from stereotype threat's detrimental effects.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is recognized as the first-choice intervention for insomnia. One of the best-known advantages of CBT-I in comparison with pharmacotherapy is its long-term effect. However, only few studies have assessed its benefits with follow-up periods of longer than three years. In this clinical case series study we aimed to describe the long-term effects of group CBT-I after a mean 7.8 ± 1.6 years of follow-up (range 4-10 years).

GABA-A receptor agonist (GABAA-RA) treatment is often used, but long-term use is controversial due to the poor risk-benefit ratio resulting from drug dependence and potential cognitive impairment. This study evaluated the effectiveness of add-on cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) and GABAA-RA dose-tapering in patients with primary insomnia resistant to pharmacotherapy.
Nonbenzodiazepine sedative-hypnotic medications, or "Z-drugs," are commonly used to treat insomnia among older adults (≥ 65 years), despite a lack of evidence of long-term effectiveness and evidence linking long-term use with poor outcomes.

Benzodiazepines and Z drugs (BZD/Z drugs) are commonly used for the treatment of insomnia and anxiety in older adults for long periods of time. Given the physiological and metabolic characteristics of this group of patients, they are more prone to the adverse effects of these drugs which include falls. The recommendations for use of BZD/Z drugs include the need to adjust the dose and select those with a short half-life, to avoid adverse events, which as well as potentially affecting patient outcome, increas...

There is growing evidence of the benefits of computers for older adults. Yet, adoption rates are lower compared with younger adults. Extant theoretical models of technology acceptance are limited in their application to older adults-studies on which these models are based included a limited sample of older adults or none at all; none assessed use of a technology specifically designed for older adults; and most only measured intention to use a technology or short-term use, rather than longer-term use (i.e., ...
