Students are to select one of the geriatric syndromes: Polypharmacy, incontinence, failure to thrive, delirium, dementia, frailty, falls, dysphagia, or malnutrition. If you have interest in a topic not listed here, then please discuss with your instructor for approval of your topic.

You are to write a 5-7 page paper on the syndrome to include

  1. An introduction to include selection of a geriatric syndrome and overview of the selected syndrome. The introduction should be 3-4 paragraphs with citations and references.
  2. Review of the literature including research articles, evidence-based guidelines, opinion papers, and/or case studies pertaining to the geriatric syndrome. Articles must be recent (unless a classic article no older than 5 years). Literature is to be on older adults.
  3. A minimum of 3 evidence-based strategies to address the syndrome which can be presented in a chart using an evidence-based evaluation model such as SORT. The table should be included as an appendix and have three columns labelled “Strategy,” “Strength of Recommendation,” and “References.”

For additional information about the SORT approach to grading evidence, review the following article: Ebell et al. (2004). Strength of recommendation taxonomy (SORT): A patient-centered approach to grading evidence in the medical literature. American Family Physician, 69(3), 548-556. Although this approach to grading evidence was published in 2004, it is still commonly used today by several well-known medical journals. The American Family Physician journal provides excellent examples on how to make one of these charts. This journal is available from the library.
