This project is based on a three-year program that aims to improve the knowledge of the socioeconomic consequences of dementia in Norway. By including patients with and without dementia in four different cohorts (from nursing homes, from memory clinics, home-dwelling persons with dementia and elderly persons without dementia), the project's aim is to describe tha course of dementia, the economical cost of dementia and to look into possible risk factors for dementia.
Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) remains a leading cause of death world-wide. Hypoalbuminemia is associated with worse outcomes. However, whether albumin administration would have a beneficial effect in outcome in patients with CAP remains uncertain. This project proposes to test the hypothesis of whether the administration of albumin in hypoalbuminemic patients with CAP would increase the proportion of clinical stable patients at day 5.
This is a 12-week cluster randomized controlled trial utilizing music-with-movement (MWM) intervention compared with usual care to investigate the effect of MWM among subjects with early dementia or mild cognitive impairment implemented by their caregivers at home.

D-CARE: The Dementia Care Study This pragmatic randomized clinical trial of 2150 persons with dementia and their caregivers, at four diverse clinical trial sites in the United States, will compare the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of 18 months of health systems-based dementia care provided by a Dementia Care Specialist (nurse practitioner or physician assistant) who works within the heath system versus community-based dementia care provided by a Care Consultant (social ...
(1) to determine whether the ratio of glycated albumin and total albumin in saliva is equivalent to blood and (2) to investigate whether the non-invasive SmartAlbu portable salivary sensor is as accurate as standard tests that measure glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c).
This clinical observational cohort study assess the loss of albumin from blood circulation during and after liver transplantation by mass balance of albumin. The overall assumption of this method is that if albumin is more diluted than hemoglobin, it must have left the plasma, presumably into the interstitial space. Predictors of albumin leakage will be assessed, including biomarkers of inflammation and of endothelial damage and dysfunction. The sub cohorts children and patient...
This study aims to assess the prevalence and severity of dementia in an established cohort of community-dwelling older adults living in three neighboring rural Ecuadorian villages (Atahualpa, El Tambo, and Prosperidad), as well as to evaluate clinical and neuroimaging correlates of dementia in the study population. By the use of the Clinical Dementia Rating Scale (CDRS), the study also aims to assess the lower cutoff of the MoCA that better correlates with the occurrence of dem...
The clinical study's hypothesis is that community dwelling older people receiving meals-on-wheels can have an improvement in health-related quality of life and muscle strength, being involved in their own food and meals compared to not being involved in their own food and meals; that is usual community home-care and meals-on-wheels.
Physical activity improves cognitive function and the ability to perform activities of daily living in people with dementia and reduces caregivers' burden thus, enhancing quality of life of people with dementia and their caregivers. The wish of most people with dementia, and their caregivers, is to live at their home, for as long as possible. However community-dwelling people with dementia have low levels of physical activity, increasing dependency, which often leads to institu...
Ireland is predicted to have the highest older adult population growth of any European Union country. A substantial economic and social challenge of this projected growth is the increased incidence of cognitive impairment and the likelihood of progression to dementia. Dementia's, such as Alzheimer's disease, typically have a long prodromal stage with brain changes identifiable from the earliest stages of neuropathology, providing an opportunity for intervention. Switching to a ...
Maintaining of improving the quality of life amongst the elderly with early phase dementia (EwD) is nowadays one of the key aims of health care services. When investigating the quality of life trajectories, it is necessary to examine contributing factors. The aim of the project is to ascertain the profile of quality of life trajectory amongst Czech EwD and to identify the most important factors affecting it. The results will be compared to the results from the elderly without d...
This study evaluates the effect and process of individualized music therapy for home-dwelling persons with mild to moderate dementia. The music therapy is administered individually and includes a close caregiver. Memory of familiar music is found to be retained in persons with dementia. It is assumed to facilitate autobiographical memories and stimulate interaction with significant others. Based on time series analyses we will use statistical process control to evaluate when an...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of community occupational therapy in older patients with mild ot moderate dementia and their primary caregivers.
The overall aim of this study is to investigate how home dwelling people with early-stage dementia cope with their disease, explored through their participation in a 12-week health promotion course, through 3 sub-studies; 1) The users' experience in gaining information about dementia and meeting others in the same situation, 2) observation of the group interactions and support processes, and 3) investigate the effect of the 12-week health promotion course for people with early ...
This study aims to assess the malnutrition prevalence of Colombian community-dwelling adults and evaluate the feasibility of a nutrition-focused QIP implemented in a Colombian ambulatory care facility on healthcare utilization.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmias in clinical practice. Research investigating hospitalized patients have indicated there are deleterious effects of AF on patients besides the disease burden itself, including longer stay days for hospitalization, higher rates of frailty and increasing mortality rate after discharged in six months. In the community-dwelling research also found that elderly with AF have lower cognitive function, physical functional tests sco...
