43 Profile of the GDH Admission Heterogeneity between different GDH Personal Means Activities and advices Outcome parameters Discussion

44 Registration: Discussion (1) Profile of the patient on the GDH is Compared to the acute G ward Younger ~ 3 yrs More often admitted from home More often discharged to home with less modification in care giving (only in 5.2% of pts) Compared to General Population Comparable level of education More professional caregivers – seems to be more dependent than general population Higher mortality rate (~ 19% versus 9.1%) Higher admission rate in the acute hospital (66.7%)

45 Registration: Discussion (2) Admission Often referred by physician Only in 40% GP Geriatric Ward seems to become more and more the provider of GDH activity Active policy for information of GP, specialist is already organized  Results from qualitative research in field of general physicians is expected till the end of 2008  Quid for the internal and surgical specialists?

46 Registration: discussion (3) Heterogeneity between different GDH Hours of Activity Hypothesis:  Efficient use of means  Consequence of a shortness of geriatricians  Often there is a lack in the current means of logistic support (secretary, transport in the hospital) Available surface/rooms Hypothesis:  22% are integrated in other day hospitals  60% are sharing rooms with others  Calculations are not correct

47 Registration: discussion (3) Heterogeneity between different GDH Patient profile (probably) linked with the performed activities (diagnostic and therapeutic) Integration in other day hospital setting Use of GDH as medical DH for the (older) person (fe gastro and colonoscopy …) Shortness of geriatricians to see the patient at GDH, so referred to consulting physicians (in 1 out of 3) or seen ambulatory and only for the multidisciplinary evaluation send to the GDH with ambulatory consultation after the visit to the GDH

48 Registration: discussion (4) Personal Means The mentioned personal means are not always the necessary means Strongly influenced by the financial means provided by the FOD/SPF  Less nurses are used (~ 1.5 FTE)  More physiotherapist, occupational therapist and psychologist are used than provided (~ 1.5 FTE)  Hospitals invest in the presence of social worker, dietician, speech therapist and administrative worker Shortness of Geriatricians  Too less financial incentives  Lot of work to perform, organisation, family talk …

49 Registration: discussion (5) Performed activities at GDH are mainly diagnostic (85%) GDH lead to the possibility of financing the often existing and necessary multidisciplinary team for an efficient memory clinic, fall clinic, assessment clinic … Less often to no experience with rehabilitation in day hospital setting  Afraid of reaction from first level caregivers as GP, physiotherapist by starting up rehab activities Treatments are often performed at specific day hospitals for oncology, haematology, surgical …

50 Registration: Discussion (5) Advices for therapy should be given, also advices for home therapy and non pharmacological therapy Medication in 70%, 96.7% started at home FU in 95.6%, stopped in ½ on advice of GP Rehabilitation in 20%, 40.4% started at home FU in 85%, stopped in ¾ on own initiative Positive effect in ½ (direct and afterwards) Higher degree of satisfaction if the patient stay in FU at the GDH

51 Registration: Discussion Outcome parameters: Very difficult to define FU in GDH seems to has only a small effect on family situation but no effect on stay at home, hospitalisation, need for professional caregivers However family are in 75% of the cases convinced of the added value. This seems to be positively correlated with FU Longitudinal follow up of a number of elderly compared to a control population should bring an answer to these questions

52 Registration: recommendations Working group consisted of Delegates from BvGG-SBGG (fe working group on GDH) College of Geriatric Medicine Research Group Define ‘Good Clinical Practice’ Type of patients who will benefit from GDH Activities to perform in GDH & who to differentiate Treatments, rehabilitation Assessment tools to use in GDH Policy to recruit patients benefiting from GDH
