Buch: Bildungsberatung für Menschen im Alter – Grundlagen, Zielgruppen, Konzepte

Vor dem Hintergrund einer Politik des „aktiven Alters“ wird das Alter immer mehr zu einer Lebensphase, die aktiv gestaltet werden will: Viele ältere Menschen weisen heute ein erhebliches kulturelles, soziales und politisches Aktivitätsniveau auf, gleichzeitig bleiben soziale Unterschiede und Ungleichheiten in der nachberuflichen Lebensphase bestehen. Diese Entwicklung stellt die Bildungs- und Beratungsarbeit mit älteren Menschen vor neue Herausforderungen.

Physical frailty: instruments for baseline characterisation of older populations in clinical trials (reflection paper)

The reflection paper describes how to characterise the baseline frailty status of older patients enrolled in clinical trials other than by their age. The aim is to ensure that clinical trial populations are representative of the users of the medicine, as the benefit-risk balance in older patients may depend on their physical frailty status. This supplements the requirements of ICH E7 note for guidance and questions and answers.
