    Soins. Gerontologie 21(118):21 (2016) PMID 26976314

    Training could be a lever for improving the quality of care of residents with dementia in nursing homes by changing social representations.

  5. [The non-meaningfulness of psycho-behavioural disorders with dementia].

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(119):33 (2016) PMID 27173629

    Dementia questions and undermines the content exchanged and relational codes. What is the true nature of these disorders? While they are not psychotic disorders, they evoke a psychiatric revelation of Alzheimer's disease. It is therefore necessary to design a mental health policy which is equal ...

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(118):34 (2016) PMID 26976317

    Hand hygiene is often considered as the attribute of caregivers. However, it is the patient who is increasingly targeted by improved communication around hygiene in care notably in the framework of the "Clean Hands Mission". In this sense, the French regional centres for the fight against nosoco...

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(118):26 (2016) PMID 26976315

    We have conducted in two nursing homes a survey to study the impact of meprobamate's withdrawal, at the beginning of 2012, in terms of extent of prescribing to others psychotropic drugs and occurrence of adverse events. After meprobamate's withdrawal, 65 % of residents did not receive alternativ...

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(118):10 (2016) PMID 26976311

This policy of support forms part of an approach to prevent the risk factors of the loss of autonomy of elderly people. Different types of care within the same nursin...

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(119):41 (2016) PMID 27173631

    The creation of a nursing home for dependent elderly people, disabled people or those with dementia provided an opportunity to reflect on the institute's charter. The main objective was to create a place in which residents and professionals feel good. An inter-professional collaborative approach...
  13. [Clinical specificities of suicidal behaviour in the elderly].

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(119):15 (2016) PMID 27173625

    Suicidal behaviour, notably in the elderly, is a complex phenomenon which is part of a process which is often pathological. The suicidal crisis is thereby difficult to detect in the elderly. However, there are tools and multidisciplinary strategies which must be favoured and which enable the ris...

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(119):12 (2016) PMID 27173624

    Suicide is more frequent in people aged over 75 than in the rest of the population. Is it the fact of feeling too old or of being alone? Is the person fully lucid? The question of responsibility is raised, as is the meaning of the act: the ultimate living gesture or capitulation in the face of d...

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(117):10 (2016) PMID 26805640

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(117):37 (2016) PMID 26805647

    Orthostatic hypotension is common in the elderly and is often associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Compression bandages are recommended as a first-line treatment but there is little evidence of their efficacy in literature. A case-control study involving 52 patients was carried out...
  18. [Hospital auxiliary staff, between polyvalence and invisibility].

    Soins. Gerontologie 21(118):37 (2016) PMID 26976318

    Often underestimated, hospital auxiliary staff carry out on a daily basis a professional activity that may be difficult to define and/or recognize.
