Scope and Importance:
Clinical Geriatrics: According to WHO, Global population ageing is a major challenge faced by all countries, population ageing changes the nature of demands on health care systems which will have to accommodate the needs of older populations while continuing to address other priority health issues such as child and maternal health. With more than 50% of the population above the age of 30 in countries like UK and USA it is also very essential for the developed countries to look at healthy ageing by developing an ageing model. In light of worldwide population ageing, the education of tomorrow's medical doctors must include not only geriatrics care but also interdisciplinary approaches through awareness for training all future medical doctors in the care of older persons. Clinical Geriatrics has wide range of applications and they can be classified as: Medical: Cardiogeriatrics , Geriatric dentistry, Geriatric dermatology , Geriatric diagnostic imaging, Geriatric emergency medicine, Geriatric nephrology , Geriatric neurology, Geriatric oncology, Geriatric pharmacotherapy, Geriatric physical examination of interest especially to physicians & physician assistants. Geriatric psychiatry or psychogeriatrics , Geriatric public health or preventive geriatrics , Geriatric rehabilitation , Geriatric rheumatology , Geriatric sexology , Geriatric subspeciality medical clinics Surgical: Orthogeriatrics, Geriatric Cardiothoracic Surgery, Geriatric urology, Geriatric otolaryngology, Geriatric General Surgery, Geriatric trauma, Geriatric gynecology, Geriatric ophthalmology Geriatric Opthomology: Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists. Geriatric Opthomology deals with the study of eye diseases in aged people. Many changes in vision in elderly patients occur as a result of age-related alteration of the ocular tissues. With age, the lens gradually yellows, resulting in some difficulty with color discrimination. It also becomes increasingly rigid, resulting in a significant loss of accommodative ability. Therefore, the patient has difficulty shifting focus from distance to near. Over time the lens becomes opaque (cataractous), creating difficulty in reading clearly at near, intermediate areas and for long distances with or without corrective lenses. When ophthalmic medical assistants appreciate and understand the problems that elderly patients face daily, they can become more sensitive and responsive to their needs. This sensitivity and care will help you achieve more accurate and complete results. Geriatric nephrology: Geriatric nephrology is the branch of internal medicine and geriatric medicine that deals with diseases of the kidney. It is a growing subspecialty of geriatrics. Patients who are living longer may acquire diseases that accelerate chronic kidney disease, which often remains undetected until patients are confronted with the sudden need for dialysis. In the United States, the median age of patients starting dialysis is 64.8 years old, yet the fastest growing segment of the dialysis population is 75 years and older. Geriatric nephrology emphasizes early identification and aggressive intervention, as well as the incorporation of geriatric and palliative care principles that emphasize independence and functionality. Geriatric neurology: Geriatric neurology is the branch of medicine that studies neurologic disorders in elderly. The subspecialty of Geriatric neurology is defined by its expertise in the diagnosis, treatment, and care of neurological conditions that affect elderly and by its unique body of knowledge regarding the aging nervous system, its vulnerability to specific neurological disorders, and its influence on the prevalence and expression of neurological disease. Neurologists are called with increasing frequency to provide care for older adults. As the number of elderly in the population increases, there will be a concomitant increase in the prevalence of acute and chronic neurological disorders associated with advancing age. Through training fellowships, the neurological community will endeavor to master, codify and transfer the knowledge and skills to effectively care for the elderly with neurological disorders. Cardio Geriatrics: Cardiogeriatrics or geriatric cardiology is the branch of cardiology and geriatric medicine that deals with the cardiovascular disorders in elderly people. Cardiac disorders as coronary heart disease (including myocardial infarction, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias and others are common and are a major cause of mortality in elderly people. Vascular disorders such as atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease cause significant morbidity and mortality in aged people. Geriatric rheumatology: Geriatric rheumatology is the branch of medicine that studies rheumatologic disorders in elderly (joints, muscles & other structures around the joints). Sometimes it is called Gerontorheumatology. The geriatric rheumatology clinic provides evaluation and management services to patients with various musculoskeletal and soft tissue disorders. Evaluation of the elderly patient is often complex due to the many comorbid conditions encountered in this population often compounded by cognitive disorders, functional decline, polypharmacy and limited social supports. Geriatric oncology: Geriatric oncology is the branch of medicine that studies benign and malignant tumors in elderly. While anyone can develop cancer, the risk of getting the disease increases with age. Certain cancers, in particular, are linked to aging, such as breast, colorectal, prostate, pancreatic, lung, bladder and stomach cancers. For many reasons, older adults (generally age 70 and higher) with cancer have different needs than younger adults with the disease. Treatment for older adults needs to consider many issues. For example, older adults
Geographically, North America accounts for one of the largest markets followed by Europe. Baby boomers play a major role in the market growth. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average life expectancy in the U.S. will be 77.1 years for men and 81.9 years for women by 2020. To tackle the rising aging population, favorable reimbursement policies and extensive presence of care centers are set up to assist the problems faced by aged people. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region due to the factors such as rise in persistent medical conditions and rising concern for life expectancies among the geriatric population. Latin America holds a strong potential for the market growth owing to the high presence of geriatric population and growing health care facility.
Some of the key players in this market segment are, the Jewish Family Service, the International Association of Geriatric Care, National Association of Professional Care Managers, Senior Care Centers, the UF health, the World Health Organization and others. These players constantly participate in awareness programs, as well as mergers and acquisitions to serve the elderly society effectively.
