Therapeutic advice issued by a geriatric mobile team and 3-year mortality in older inpatients

Abstract

Our objective was to determine whether the provision of therapeutic advice (i.e., any recommendation for an increase or decrease in drug dosage, or for the addition, withdrawal or replacement of at least one drug) by hospital geriatric mobile teams (GMTs) was associated with long-term mortality among older inpatients. Data on therapeutic advice provided by the GMT of Angers University Hospital, France, were collected from 694 consecutive inpatients examined in 2012 (mean age 84.4 ± 6.3 years; 65.6% female), who were followed up after 3 years. We found no between-group differences regarding the 3-year mortality (P = 0.30) and no cumulative survival difference (log-rank P = 0.43). The provision of therapeutic advice by a GMT was not associated with better 3-year survival (HR = 1.18, P = 0.40) in these frail inpatients.
