The geriatric population is as a group often at risk of disease and often experiencing limited access to health care system because of place of residence, economic factors, social isolation, complex medical illness, and other individual and familial factors. Quality is essential to continue examining existing organizational structures in homecare or institution for elderly. Interdisciplinary and person-centred cares have been utilized to trigger quality in geriatrics care for years. Person-centred care was part of a wide movement during the last decades of the 20th century that recognised that people with dementia could benefit from psychological approaches, that they had human rights and that they proposed a challenge to dehumanizing care practice which had not been seen previously. These programs have used diverse group of educational models to relate various health professions and community service agencies with academic institutions for training in care of the elderly and to address ethical issues training for the purpose of stimulating educational collaboration. This article explores present and for the future recommendations for interdisciplinary collaborations, discusses educational models on quality management especially in France and Belgian. [less ▲]

The aim of this descriptive study was to estimate and compare the association between cognitive decline and quality of life (QOL) for 2 groups of dementia patients differing by place of residence: home or institution. Each subject was placed within a specific subgroup according to their Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score and was evaluated by a QOL proxy-assessment [Alzheimer Disease Related Quality of Life (ADRQL)] and a dependency assessment (Katz Activities of Daily Living classification). For the ‘‘at home’’ and ‘‘institution’’ groups, global and subscale ADRQL scores showed significant differences between the 5 MMSE subgroups. Place of residence and MMSE subgroups significantly affected global and subscale ADRQL scores. The MMSE 4 to 8, 9 to 13, and 14 to 18 subgroups had ADRQL global scores significantly better in the institution group than the at home group. In contrast, the MMSE 19 to 23 and 0 to 3 subgroups had similar ADRQL global scores in both places of residence. In conclusion, there is no direct relationship between cognitive decline and QOL, and QOL does not seem to be better at home compared with the institution. [less ▲]

This study approaches the question of the evolution of the quality of life (QOL) measures in older patient populations. On base of the report of the weak number of instruments specifically adapted to this population and of the absence of instruments taking into account both the expectations and the priorities of the individuals, we wished to make the adaptation of a tool for adult, the Quality of life Systematic Inventory (QLSI©). In this prospect, the main aim of this preliminary research was to test the evaluative approach of the QLSI© within a population of old people and to obtain useful information for the construction of a version of the QLSI© for old people. 135 voluntary subjects, from 65 to 85 years old, living at home and having a good health participated in the study. The questionnaire revealed a good QOL which could be explained by the combination of diverse factors such as a good current situation, a lesser importance given to the diverse life domains and the relatively weak goals. The results demonstrated the relevance of the QLSI© but also showed the necessity of certain modifications to make this questionnaire more specific to the old person. [less ▲]

Behavioural and psychological signs and symptoms - BPSD are clinical features of dementia. They have considerable impact on the daily life of patients and their caregivers. The aim of this study is to show the importance of these disorders in dementia semiology and to assess differences in their prevalence across levels of severity of dementia. The sample is made up of 160 subjects with dementia older than 65 years old. Diagnosis of dementia was based on DSM-IV criteria. BPSD were assessed with the NeuroPsychiatric Inventory-NPI and dementia staging was measured with Clinical Dementia Rating/Modified-CDR-M. Results show that prevalence of delusions is more important in severe dementia and that prevalence of agitation/ aggression is more important in profound dementia. These data may help to clarify objectives and treatment of BPSD. This study raises also some methodological problems with the NPI and underlines the importance to define the different disorders included in certain NPI domains accurately. [less ▲]

Purpose: The objective of this paper was to determine the interest and psychometric properties of a new QOL self-assessment questionnaire suitable for children 8 to 12 years old measuring alpha, beta and gamma changes: the “Inventaire Systémique de Qualité de vie pour Enfants” (ISQV-E©). Methods: This was a cross-sectional validation study. 288 children have completed the ISQV-E. Other tools were used: The “Autoquestionnaire de Qualité de Vie Enfants Imagé” (AUQUEI), the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children (STAIC), the Children’s Depression Inventory (CDI) and socio-demographic data. Results: The internal consistency of the four scores of the ISQV-E (state, goal, rank and gap) is satisfactory. All scores have their own specificity. The data show the convergent validity, sensitivity and applicability of the ISQV-E. On the other hand, no satisfactory factorial structure was found although a multidimensional theoretical perspective was applied. Conclusions: The feasibility of the ISQV-E seems clearly demonstrated and the value of this new tool seems evident in contexts of physical, psychological or social problems. The validation study was promising but certain points such as test-retest reliability remain to be studied and the others, such as the absence of a satisfactory factorial structure, need to be examined again.

OBJECTIVES: To assess the sensitivity of the 'Alzheimer's Disease Related Quality of Life' instrument (ADRQL) applied to Belgian people with dementia (n = 357), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) (n = 36), and controls (n = 72). We also determined the clinical parameters that influence the quality of life (QOL) of people with dementia. METHOD: Each subject was evaluated with the ADRQL, the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE), the cognitive scale of the Cambridge Examination for Mental Disorders of the Elderly (CAMCOG), the Katz's ADL classification (ADL), the Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL), the Behavior Rating Scale for Dementia (CERAD/BRSD), and the Clinical Dementia Rating/Modified (CDR-M). RESULTS: The ADRQL showed that QOL of the dementia group (65.77 +/- 17.04) was significantly inferior to that of the MCI (82.11 +/- 13.31) and control groups (79.75 +/- 15.82). There were no significant differences between the MCI and control groups. Within the dementia group, the five ADRQL subscale results were similar to those reported in other studies. Gender, age and place of residence had no significant influence on ADRQL scores. In contrast, ADRQL scores correlated significantly with MMSE, CAMCOG, IADL, ADL, CERAD/BRSD, and CDR-M. The MMSE and CERAD/BRSD were significant predictors of ADRQL variability. CONCLUSIONS: QOL of people with dementia is inferior to that of people with MCI and controls. This demonstrates the ADRQL instrument is sufficiently sensitive for evaluating the QOL of people with dementia. Longitudinal studies are needed to specifically examine the rate of QOL evolution throughout the entire dementia process. Copyright (c) 2008 John Wiley [less ▲]

Aims: We aimed to examine the association of cognitive decline with quality of life (QoL) in dementia compared to controls and to determine variables associated with QoL. Methods: Every subject was placed within a specific group depending on their designation by the Mini Mental State Examination and evaluated by the Alzheimer’s Disease Related Quality of Life (ADRQL) and clinical assessments. Results: QoL for the mild dementia group was lower (p = 0.08) than that of controls. The very severe dementia group had a significantly lower QoL than the other dementia groups, which all had similar ADRQL scores. The only predictor of ADRQL scores was found to be the behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia. Conclusion: There is no direct relationship between cognitive decline and QoL. [less ▲]

Objectives To examine the evolution of quality of life (QOL) in demented subjects at base-line, one and 2 years later and to determine clinical variables associated with QOL. Method Longitudinal study of a cohort of 127 subjects living at home or in a long-term care institution. A QOL measure (Alzheimer Disease Related Quality of Life; ADRQL) was administered three times. In addition, several clinical instruments (MMSE, IADL, ADL and CDR/M) were also administered. Results ADRQL data analysis did not reveal significant modifications of QOL over the 2-year period, whereas results from clinical instruments showed a significant deterioration. On the group, the variations of ADRQL scores were limited, with some improvement after the first year followed by some deterioration after the second year. On the other hand, ADRQL scores fluctuated every year by at least 10 points for more than 50% of subjects. With dementia evolution, it was observed that the clinical variables were more strongly correlated with ADRQL scores and were more significant predictors. This varied from 5.9% (MMSE) in 2002 to 40.01 % in 2004 (MMSE and CDR/M). Conclusions QOL did not develop in a strictly linear manner following the deterioration of clinical state. This suggests that the evolution of QOL is also determined by other variables relating to the physical and social environment of the patients. Their role seems particularly important for the mild to moderate stages of dementia. Copyright (c) 2007 John Wiley [less ▲]

Classiquement, on affirme que la qualité de vie (QdV) des personnes démentes est meilleure au domicile qu’en institution. Toutefois, cette affirmation n’est guère étayée par des études comparatives utilisant un même instrument d’évaluation. En outre, il n’y a pas de consensus sur la nature des relations entre troubles cognitifs et QdV. Dans le cadre des études Qualidem (Paquay et al., 2004) et PIXEL (Thomas et al., 2006), la QdV de sujets déments et vulnérables a été évaluée au moyen de l’Alzheimer Disease Related Quality of Life (ADRQL; Rabins et al., 1999). Des analyses préliminaires ont démontré l’absence de différences significatives entre les populations Qualidem et PIXEL (variables âge, sexe, dépendance et QdV). L’échantillon total se compose de sujets majoritairement féminins âgés de 65 ans et plus. Tous les sujets déments ont un score MMSE compris entre 0 et 23 et sont répartis en 5 groupes: MMSE 0-3; 4-8; 9-13; 14-18 et 19-23. Tous les sujets vulnérables ont un score MMSE24 et se situent au stade évolutif normal de la Clinical Dementia Rating/Modified (CDR/M; Heymans et al., 1987). L’analyse des scores ADRQL ne met pas en évidence une diminution linéaire de la QdV en fonction de la sévérité des troubles cognitifs. Toutefois, le lieu de résidence influence le profil des scores. En institution (n déments=296; n vulnérables=12), ils diminuent au stade débutant de la démence (MMSE 19-23), se stabilisent dans les groupes MMSE 9-13 et 14-18 avant de s’abaisser fortement dans les groupe MMSE 4-8 et 0-3. Au domicile, (n déments=159; n vulnérables=14), on observe une phase de diminution dans les groupes MMSE 19-23 et 14-18 puis une phase de stabilisation dans les 3 derniers groupes. En conclusion, la QdV des sujets déments n’évolue pas linéairement en fonction de la dégradation de l’état cognitif. L’évolution différente des profils selon le lieu de résidence soulève la question de l’influence de la variable « informant » dans l’hétéro-évaluation de la QdV de personnes démentes. Au domicile, cet informant est l’aidant principal (soignant informel) alors qu’en institution, il s’agit d’un soignant formel. L’hypothèse de biais de surévaluation par le soignant formel et de sous-évaluation par le soignant informel peut donc être posée. [less ▲]

L’étude de la qualité de vie (QdV) des personnes démentes suscite de plus en plus d’intérêt. Son évaluation soulève de nombreuses interrogations concernant son évolution au cours du processus démentiel. Les facteurs explicatifs demeurent encore controversés. Dans le cadre de l’étude Qualidem (Paquay et al., 2004), nous avons évalué, sur une période de deux ans, la QdV de sujets déments (n=362) avec l’Alzheimer Disease Related Quality of Life-ADRQL (Rabins et al., 1999). Leur QdV initiale a été comparée à celle de sujets MCI (n=36) et vulnérables (n=124). Majoritairement féminines, les trois populations se composent de sujets âgés de 65 ans et plus résidant en institution ou au domicile. L’analyse des scores ADRQL globaux ( /100) montre que la QdV du groupe « déments » (65.89±17.06) est significativement inférieure à celle des groupes « MCI » (82.11±13.31) et « vulnérables » (75.64±20.44). MCI et vulnérables ne se différencient pas entre eux. Les scores ADRQL du groupe « déments » ne sont pas en relation avec le sexe, l’âge et le lieu de résidence (domicile/institution). Ils sont corrélés avec l’état cognitif (MMSE, CAMCOG), la dépendance (AIVJ, AVQ), les troubles psychologiques et comportementaux (CERAD/BRSD) et le stade évolutif (CDR-M). Le MMSE et la CERAD/BRSD ont un rôle explicateur (25.92%) sur la variance du critère « qualité de vie ». Le suivi du groupe déments (n=127) met en évidence une absence de modifications significatives de la QdV sur une période de 2 ans. Par contre, une dégradation de l’état clinique (MMSE, AIVJ, AVQ, CDR-M) s’observe. Celle-ci s’accompagne d’une augmentation du pouvoir explicateur des variables du tableau clinique (MMSE et CDR/M). En conclusion, la QdV du groupe « déments » n’est pas très nettement inférieure à celle des groupes « MCI » et « vulnérables ». De plus, elle demeure relativement stable sur une période de 2 ans malgré la dégradation du tableau clinique. Ces résultats confortent l’hypothèse selon laquelle l’évolution de la QdV ne serait pas uniquement déterminée par des paramètres neurodégénératifs mais également par des variables en lien avec les environnements physique et social au sein desquels la personne démente vit sa maladie.
