300 - Increasing Complexity Awareness of Parkinson Disease Psychosis: Risk Factors, Symptoms, Diagnosing & Management
Presenters: Linda J. Keilman, DNP,GNP-BC, FAANP (United States); Sharon Bronner, DNP (United States); Melodee Harris, PhD, APRN, GNP-BC, AGPCNP-BC, FAAN (United States)


301 - Social health: a pathway to inclusion and cognitive health
Presenters: Myrra Vernooij-Dassen, PhD (The Netherlands); Rabih Chattat, MD, PhD (Italy); Suraj Samtani (Australia), PhD; Isabelle van der Velpen (The Netherlands)

Description: Social health is an umbrella concept that covers how the individual relates to his or her social environment and vice versa. Presenters share a systematic review on the relationship between social health and cognitive decline and dementia, discuss how data were combined to provide a visual overview of social health (living situation, relationship status, social isolation, and loneliness) in different countries, show the social health trajectories and illustrate how pre-pandemic sociodemographic factors influence these trajectories of loneliness, social isolation and social connectedness in the early pandemic and conclude with the results of a qualitative research with people with young onset dementia and their caregivers


302 - The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on those living with and caring for someone with dementia
Presenters: Clarissa Giebel, PhD (United Kingdom); Marta Lenart (Poland); Ilaria Chirico (Italy); Katarzyna M. Lion (Australia)

Description: In this symposium, we will present findings from our 5-country international comparison study on how the pandemic and associated restrictions have impacted the lives of people living with dementia and unpaid carers. We present emerging findings from interviews with over 125 people with dementia and unpaid carers from the UK, Australia, Italy, Poland, and India, and report on faster deterioration, the severe withdrawal of social care and social support services, digital technology solutions, as well as the effects on social health for people living with dementia.


303 - Novel Continuum of Behavioural Support in Dementia
Presenters: Morris Freedman, MD, FRCPC, FAAN (Canada); Deb Galet, M.Ed., BSc. OT (Canada); Robert Madan, MD (Canada); M. Uri Wolf (Canada)

Description: This symposium will focus on a novel continuum of behavioural support in dementia involving a game changer in care for neuropsychiatric symptoms (Virtual Behavioural Medicine Program), a model of specialized behaviour support teams embedded across the continuum of care (Behaviour Support Services for Seniors Program), an acute inpatient neurobehavioural unit that is integrated with the Virtual Behavioural Medicine Program, and a Transitional Behavioural Support Unit. This novel continuum of behavioural support represents a scalable model that can be adopted worldwide.


304 - Mental healthcare services and advocacy for older people amidst the COVID crisis: Voices from South Asia
Presenters: Dr. Afzal Javed (Pakistan); Dr. Gautam Saha (India); Dr. Sudarshan Narsingh (Nepal); Dr. G.Prasad Rao (India); Dr. Waziul Alam Chowdhury (Bangladesh); Debanjan Banerjee, MD (Moderator, India)

Description: Asia has some of the fastest developing economies and largest conglomerations of populations in the world. One such geographically unique region is South Asia, which accounts for nearly 25% of the global population and one-fifth of the psychiatric morbidity worldwide. This region is also ageing rapidly compared to rest of the world due to modifications in healthcare facilities, hygiene, and lifestyle as well as improved sanitation and infection control. Besides, some of the South Asian countries have also been worst-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic which has led to an exaggerated psychosocial crisis among their older people. With this background, leaders in the field of psychogeriatric care from five South Asian nations come together to discuss and highlight upcoming strategies for mental health advocacy and service delivery among older people in these regions.


400 - Environmental stimuli in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic: Lessons learned to improve the management of challenging behavior
Presenter: Inge Knippenberg, MSc (The Netherlands)

Description: COVID-19 restrictions in nursing homes resulted in a reduction in stimuli for residents. In an online  survey, Dutch healthcare professionals provided their perspectives on the effects of the reduction in untargeted stimuli (e.g., spontaneous noise) on residents with mild, advanced, or no dementia, and on different types of challenging behavior. Additionally, we asked participants’ opinions about strategies for limiting untargeted stimuli and for adjusting targeted stimuli (e.g., planned recreational activities) for optimal management of challenging behavior. In our presentation, we elaborate on the findings of this study.


401 - Cannabis and Older Adults
Presenter: Kiran Rabheru, MD (Cananda)

Description: The results from a variety of published sources highlight the increasing use of cannabis among older adults in addition to a reported gap in knowledge for healthcare providers regarding cannabis and older adults. In order to address this gap, the Canadian Coalition for Seniors’ Mental Health (CCSMH) conducted a Needs Assessment Survey on Cannabis and Older Adults. CCSMH received 1551 responses from healthcare providers, healthcare students, caregivers and older adults in the Fall of 2020. This presentation will discuss key findings from the survey including the reality of cannabis use and older adults, and reported levels of healthcare provider knowledge and comfort prescribing and authorizing cannabis for their older patients.


402 - An audit of Lithium Prescribing Practices in an Old Age Psychiatry Service highlighting renal impairment in this cohort.
Presenter: Dr. Leia Valentine (Ireland)

Description: This is an audit of Lithium Prescribing Practices in an old age psychiatry service highlighting renal impairment in this cohort. The aim of the audit is to compare Lithium with prescribing practices in Psychiatry of old Age service in the North West of Ireland among adults aged 65 years or older with best practice guidelines. The results of this audit highlight room for improvement in lithium monitoring of older adults attending POA service. Furthermore, all patients prescribed lithium had impaired renal function, half had abnormal calcium and two fifths had abnormal thyroid function. This is an important finding given the associations between kidney disease and premature death.


403 - Paradoxical lucidity: A survey of family caregivers of persons with dementia
Presenter: Joan Griffin, PhD (United States)

Description: In this presentation we will discuss research in progress to understand “lucid episodes” among people with Alzheimer’s Disease or Related Dementias (ADRDs).   These episodes are characterized by spontaneous, relevant communication or connectedness in a person who is assumed to have permanently lost cognitive capacity.   We will discuss our approach to develop and refine typologies of lucid episodes and our planned future efforts to establish prevalence estimates, predictors of lucid episodes, and test how these episodes affect caregiver outcomes, such as complicated grief.  


404 - Factors associated with diagnostic delay in younger-onset dementia
Presenter: Samantha M. Loi, PhD, MD (Australia)

Description: This presentation provides the background and results to our research investigating delay to diagnosis in younger onset dementia.  Younger-onset dementia refers to a dementia when onset occurs at 65 years or less and represents about 5% of all dementias.  Due to many factors including hetereogenous presentation including psychiatric presentation, diagnostic delay is the norm and has implications for service provision and future planning.  We found time to diagnosis was 3.4 years and the risk factors were younger age of onset, a dementia that wasn't Alzheimer's nor frontotemporal and dementia and increased number of services used.


405 - Emotional Resilience of Older Adults During COVID-19: A Systematic Review of Studies of Stress and Well-Being
Presenter: Evelina Sterina, MD, MSCR Student (United States)

Description: Older adults and those with medical co-morbidities are at an increased risk of severe disease from viral illnesses, including COVID-19, and are especially urged to adhere to preventive measures. This presentation describes a systematic review of age as a variable in early studies of distress, depression, and/or anxiety during mass quarantine. The study explores the relationship of scores on a broad range of scales with age, including limitations of the studies and considerations for future evaluations.


406 - Supports received by the families of people with neurodegenerative disease: a quantitative and qualitative approach
Presenter: Alba Aza Hernández, PhD (Spain)

Description: We know that when a neurodegenerative disease (ND) is diagnosed, the family's quality of life changes drastically. However, it is necessary to conduct more specific studies, using a comprehensive quantitative-qualitative approaches that delve into the affected areas and the family's needs. In our study 300 relatives of people with ND completed the instrument FQOLS–ND, a specific scale for measuring quality of life in families caring for people with a ND. ND negatively and significantly affects the family as a whole. Despite this, the emotional and practical support they receive from both other community members and professionals and services is still very insufficient.


407 - Living through the pandemic as an older person: Long-term psychological impacts in low- and middle-income countries
Presenter: Clarissa Giebel, PhD (United Kingdom)

Description: We conducted 90 baseline interviews and over 50 follow- up interviews, as well as focus groups with care professionals, about the psychological impact of the restrictions on the lives of older adults and those living with dementia. We noticed stark impacts on the general lives of older adults, such as lack of income and thus lack of basic necessities. Older adults were thus more concerned with a lack of basics than focusing on their mental health and well-being, their primary focus was surviving in many instances, as opposed to living well.


408 - Muscle strength is an important predictor for limitations in basic activities of daily living among people with severe disability
Presenter: Jinni Wang (China)

Description: TBA


409 - Psychometric features of Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments (CGAs) in long-term and home care settings: A Systematic Review
Presenter: Mauricio Molinari Ulate (Spain)

Description: The presentation will take you into the journey of the Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments that has been used in long-term care and community care settings. We will review their psychometric characteristics, strengths and weaknesses, and what areas are included in the assessment.  


410 - A Systematic Review on Digital Health Interventions (DHIs) supporting the administration of Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments (CGAs) use in long-term and home care settings.
Presenter: Mauricio Molinari Ulate (Spain)

Description: The presentation aims to overview the different digital platforms facilitating the administration of Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments, targeting the barriers and facilitators for its usability and implementation, and describing their technical features.


411 - Palliative Care in Dutch Green Care Farms and Innovative Small-Scale Facilities
Presenter: Brittany DeGraves (Canada)

Description: This presentation will discuss a two-part study focused on palliative care in innovative small-scale facilities that care for older adults with dementia. Innovative Small-Scale facilities, including Dutch Green Care Farms, promote resident engagement and resident-centred care to maintain quality of life up until death. This presentation will discuss our scoping review and semi-structured interviews focused on palliative care in these innovative facilities and identify further directions for research that are needed to understand the quality of palliative care provided in these innovative facilities. 


412 - Empowerment for people living with dementia: an integrative literature review
Presenter: Charlotte van Corven (The Netherlands)

Description: Although the concept of empowerment seems useful for good care and support for people living with dementia, there is a lack of understanding as to how to define this concept. We performed an integrative literature review, including articles that addressed empowerment for people living with dementia in their title or abstract. We combined these results with the conceptual framework of our previous qualitative study on the definition of empowerment for people living with dementia based on stakeholders’ perspectives into a revised conceptual framework. In this presentation, we will elaborate on these results.


413 - Delivering tailored, holistic support to people living with dementia and their families: a new primary care intervention
Presenter: Greta Brunskill, PhD (United Kingdom)

Description: This presentation will describe the development of a new primary care post-diagnostic support intervention that aims to improve quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers. It will highlight three key challenges to delivering good quality post-diagnostic dementia support that we identified through evidence reviews and qualitative research, and underpin the focus of the new intervention. 


414 - Supporting staff delivering person-centered care to people with dementia in Dutch nursing homes
Presenter: Henriëtte Van Der Roest, PhD (The Netherlands)

Description: Person centered care (PCC) is seen as the golden standard for dementia care. When providing PCC, care and support are provided in line with the needs, preferences and capacities of people with dementia. PCC has positive evidence on residents’ quality of life, quality of care an wellbeing. Time constraints or high levels of cognitive impairment might hinder high levels of PCC provisioning by care professionals. Limited evidence so far show that organizational and environmental conditions, such as leadership or interdisciplinary collaboration, contribute to high PCC. During this presentation insight is provided into modifiable, organizational and environmental factors that contribute to PCC for people with dementia in Dutch nursing homes.


415 - Promoting empowerment for nursing homes residents with dementia: a feasibility study of the SPAN+ program
Presenter: Charlotte van Corven, PhD (The Netherlands)

Description: For feeling empowered, a sense of identity, usefulness, control, and self-worth is important for people living with dementia. We developed an empowerment intervention called the SPAN+ program to promote empowerment for nursing home residents with dementia. In this presentation, more information is provided on the experiences of healthcare professionals of two dementia special care units of one care organization who worked with the SPAN+ intervention.


416 - Family quality of life in Neurodegenerative Diseases and associated factors
Presenter: Eva González Ortega (Spain)

Description: Neurodegenerative diseases (NDs) are one of the major causes of dependency among older people. Their impact goes beyond the patient and affects the entire family. However, researchers have focused on family caregivers from an individual perspective, paying less attention to the family unit. The main aim was to describe the Family Quality of Life (FQOL) of people with NDs from a holistic perspective and to identify factors associated. Overall, our results confirm that NDs are especially challenging in rural areas, where families have fewer opportunities to receive professional support. Hence, there is a need to design a specific portfolio of services and resources covering all the family needs and to bring them closer to these areas.

424 - Cardiac Healthcare Disparities in Schizophrenia at the End-of-Life
Presenter: Joshua Baruth, MD, PhD (United States)

Description: Individuals with schizophrenia are at greater risk of early mortality and sudden cardiac death compared to those without psychiatric disease. This retrospective study measured cardiac-healthcare utilization in the final year of life in individuals with schizophrenia (N=610) compared to an equal number of controls matched by sex and age of death. The schizophrenia group was less likely to undergo an electrocardiogram (ECG); they also had a greater prevalence of cardiovascular disease and a two-fold increased risk of prolonged QTc, which is a recognized biomarker of cardiac risk. Strategic interventions are needed to address cardiovascular healthcare disparities in this population


425 - Incorporating young children into family caregiving for people with dementia in Taiwan
Presenter: Ching Yi Kuo (Taiwan)

Description: This study aims to investigate Taiwanese children's aged 8-12 years old attitude and perceptions toward dementia and people with dementia. Taiwanese children are guided by Chinese Filial Piety cultural values, which emphasis the respect for older family members and extend this respect to other older adults. Although young children do not interact with their older family members often, they remain to possess relatively positive attitudes toward older adults. However, Taiwanese children are shown to lack dementia knowledge. Dementia education tailored for school-aged children therefore merits attention.


426 - Character Strengths association with Personal Growth in Grandparents providing Regular Care
Presenter: Cristina Noriega (Spain)

Description: The number of grandparents providing regular care for their grandchildren has increased substantially. Some research has shown lower perceived health and role strain. However, it can also offer opportunities to grow. This study examined what character strengths predict extended babysitters´ personal growth. Results showed that the higher scores in character strengths, emotional intelligence and creativity, the more personal growth grandparents showed.


427 - Psychoeducation Program for the Prevention of Older Adults´ Infantilization in Professionals working in Nursing Homes
Presenter: Cristina Noriega (Spain)

Description: Kayser-Jones (1981) described infantilization as one of the four most frequent types of violence in nursing homes. This study analyzed the efficacy of a psychoeducation program for the prevention of infantilization in professionals working in nursing homes. The intervention lasted 6 hours and included four sessions distributed in two days. These sessions aimed to reduce negative stereotypes, preventing infantilized communication patterns and the use of behaviors or practices that are frequently used with children. The scores of infantilization in the experimental group significantly decreased from pre-intervention to post-intervention in the professional, while the control group did not show any changes.


428 - Reflections on geriatric psychopharmacology in Portugal
Presenter: Beatriz Jorge, MD

Description: TBA


429 - Human rights crisis for older people during the COVID-19 pandemic in India: Psychosocial cohesion as a mitigating strategy
Presenter: Debanjan Banerjee, MD (India)

Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exploited risks not only related to health, but also the societies, economies and our future. India, being one of the worst hit nations during this outbreak, has faced a significant economic fallout with certain vulnerable populations enduring major humanitarian crisis. Older adults are at disproportionate risk of severe infection, mortality as well as loneliness, ageism, seclusion, abuse, loss of autonomy and neglect during the pandemic. This talk highlights social cohesion as a multi-dimensional driver of long-term prosperity and collectivism. It refers to the extent of connectedness, solidarity and sense of belongingness in the community. Further, we review psychosocial vulnerabilities of older adults during infectious disease outbreaks in light of the present pandemic and propose strategies to mitigate this marginalization through the WHO’s concept of healthy ageing based on social cohesion and inclusion.


430 - Burnout and Negative Stereotypes: How They affect the Quality of Life of Professionals working in Nursing Homes.
Presenter: Patricia López-Frutos (Spain)

Description: The quality of life of professionals working in nursing homes is often impaired by the stress that they experience daily. This study aimed to analyze how burnout affects professionals´ quality of life and how this relationship is moderated by their stereotypes towards the residents.


431 - Establishing a Canadian National ECHO Educational Program focused on Mental Health of Older Adults
Presenter: David K. Conn, MBBCh (Canada)

Description: The goal of this collaborative program between Baycrest, the Canadian Coalition for Seniors’ Mental Health and the Canadian Academy of Geriatric Psychiatry was to build capacity in healthcare providers across Canada who work with older adults experiencing mental health issues.  The ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) model was utilized. This is a highly interactive and effective educational model, that originated in New Mexico, USA and is now utilized in more than 40 countries.  The process and outcomes will be described.


432 - Ultrabrief Right Unilateral ECT in Older Adults with Catatonia: A Case Series and Literature Review

The capacities of social innovation and transfer of students, professors and staff members of the Masters of Gerontology and Psychogerontology have been trained.


436 - Scaling up a community-based intervention for people affected by dementia: what is the value?
Presenter: Nathan Stephens (United Kingdom)

Description: Post diagnosis, evidence-based interventions are essential for people to adjust to the changes dementia brings. However, not enough people access this type of support, and increasing availability and access is a feature of national and local policy in the UK. The presentation will discuss the political landscape of social value and the theoretical and practical challenges and advantages of using the principles and stages of SROI.


437 - The elderly and their sexuality: specific challenges and the role of the psychiatrist
Presenter: Catarina Pedro Fernandes (Portugal)

Description: The model of sexuality currently in force is a young, genitalized model, that does not tolerate failures or the natural aging process, generating many myths about sexuality in later life but also real difficulties. In this presentation, we will comprehend how aging impacts sexuality, affecting all stages of the sexual response cycle. We will have a look at the specific biological, socio-cultural and psychological factors as well as the changes on couple’s dynamic interaction that occur during the aging process.
