New Trends Concern Eldercare Professionals, Reports HMP Communications, LLC

Malvern, PA (PRWEB) January 07, 2013

Only 17.6% of long-term caregivers and geriatric healthcare professionals said they would adjust their approach to diabetes treatment based on the latest guidelines.*

This is just a very small glimpse at the surprising data reported in the 2012 Trends Report: Latest Industry Trends in Long-Term Care & Geriatric Medicine.

The information for this second edition of the Trends Report was generated through a comprehensive survey developed through the collaborative efforts of an Advisory Panel of key thought leaders and the editorial staff of Annals of Long-Term Care and Clinical Geriatrics. This survey was then sent to a diverse pool of long-term care and geriatric medicine healthcare professionals.

Based on feedback from our Advisory Panel, several new disease states have been included in this latest Trends Report, providing an even broader perspective of the issues that are top of mind to this niche group of healthcare professionals.

While reviewing the results gathered, it became clear that the list of concerns troubling this specialty is long. As shared by one of the survey participants, “Everyone is living longer, and I think close monitoring and individualizing healthcare in general is needed to improve and keep high quality of life.”

The goal of this Trends Report is to provide a forum where long-term care and geriatric healthcare professionals can see a snapshot of what their peers are doing, what frustrations they are facing, and how they are meeting the challenges inherent in their specialty. And through this information, they may find inspiration and insight. Visit http://www.annalsoflongtermcare.com and http://www.clinicalgeriatrics.com for more information.

*This statistic is based on the results of the Trends Report Survey, which targeted long-term care and geriatric medicine healthcare professionals.

About Annals of Long Term Care and Clinical Geriatrics
The print and online journal of Clinical Geriatrics (CG) is committed to publishing superior, evidence-based, up-to-date, clinical information for clinicians who diagnose and treat patients ages 65 and older; it is also a practical resource for all healthcare providers. As the US geriatric population grows, primary care physicians, geriatricians, and specialists in related fields are caring for a growing number of older, more mature patients.

Annals of Long-Term Care: Clinical Care and Aging (ALTC) is dedicated to providing practical clinical information to all healthcare providers serving long-term care residents, a frail population with unique health concerns. This mission is crucial as there is still a paucity of clinical data for elderly individuals, especially those residing in long-term care facilities. In addition, the demand for long-term care services is anticipated to surge in the coming decades; thus, an increasing number of healthcare providers will be caring for long-term care residents. By publishing detailed, timely, practical clinical information, ALTC seeks to help all healthcare providers serving the long-term care community to stay current on the latest clinical information and developments, ensuring their patients receive the highest quality care.
