Special Issue "Geriatrics Syndromes Prevention"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Global Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 May 2019).
Population age is rapidly increasing around the world, and geriatric syndromes are clinical conditions common in older adults.
Geriatric syndromes including frailty, cognitive impairment, falls, functional decline, chronic pain, weight loss, anorexia, depression, and multi-morbidity increase in the risk for adverse outcomes, such as disability, hospitalization, and mortality. Therefore, geriatric syndrome prevention strategies must be important to realize a “society of health and longevity.” In addition, it would be useful to implement these strategies in a community setting.
This Special Issue seeks papers on geriatric syndrome prevention in the community setting, including papers on the impacts of health outcomes and environmental conditions related to public health. Epidemiological and mechanistic studies will be considered. Systematic reviews will be also considered.
