Positive age beliefs protection against dementia

One of the strongest risk factors for dementia is the ε4 variant of the APOE gene. Yet, many who carry it never develop dementia.

A recent study, published in PLOS One, examined for the first time whether positive age beliefs that are acquired from the culture may reduce the risk of developing dementia among older individuals, including those who are APOE ε4 carriers.

The cohort consisted of 4,765 Health and Retirement Study participants who were aged 60 or older and dementia-free at baseline. As predicted, in the total sample those with positive age beliefs at baseline were significantly less likely to develop dementia, after adjusting for relevant covariates.

Among those with APOE ε4, those with positive age beliefs were 49.8% less likely to develop dementia than those with negative age beliefs.

The study concluded that the results of this study suggest that positive age beliefs, which are modifiable and have been found to reduce stress, can act as a protective factor, even for older individuals at high risk of dementia.

Clinical Practice Guidelines for LBP

Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are designed to ensure that evidence-based treatment is easily put into action. Whether patients and clinicians follow these guidelines is equivocal.

The objectives of a recent study, published in The Spine Journal, were to examine how many patients complaining of low back pain (LBP) underwent evidence-based medical interventional treatment in line with Clinical practice guidelines recommendations before consultation with a spine surgeon, and to evaluate any associations between adherence to Clinical practice guidelines recommendations and baseline factors.

The study concluded that Evidence-based medical interventional treatments for patients with LBP are not being taken advantage of before spine surgery consultation.

If more patients were to undertake CPG-endorsed conservative modalities, it may result in fewer unnecessary referrals from primary care physicians, and patients might not deteriorate as much while lingering on long wait lists.

Further studies incorporating knowledge translation or health system pathway changes are necessary.
