1. Dias, Roberta Bolzani de Miranda, 1980-. Tradução, adaptação cultural e validação do Quick Screen Clinical Falls Risk Assessment para a aplicação em idosos brasileiros: Translation, cultural adaptation and validation of Quick Screen Clinical Falls Risk Assessment for use in elderly brazilians.

Degree: 2016, Universidade Estadual de Campinas

Abstract: Introduction: The identification of elderly at risk of falling is essential for implementing fall prevention programs. However, there are few evaluation and risk stratification of falling tools validated for elderly living in the community. Quick Screen Clinical Falls Risk Assessment (QuickScreen) was developed for this purpose. Objective: To adapt and to validate QuickScreen to be used in Brazilian elderly living in the community. Methods: This thesis covers two studies. The first one concerns the process of cultural adaptation and reliability analysis. For the reliability assessment, 55 elderly patients were evaluated by this tool. The second one assesses the tool's ability to predict the occurrence of falls in a period of 12 months. Statistical analysis: The Kappa coefficient (K) was used to analyze concordance regarding inter-rater reliability and intra-rater reliability of all eight items of the tool, whereas the pondered Kappa coefficient (K-weighed) was used to assess concordance regarding stratification of fall risk, according to the number of risk factors present. To analyze the predictive capacity of the tool, logit regression-type models were developed, and the estimated probabilities, the accuracy, the relative risk of fall and risk of fall twice or more were identified. Results: QuickScreen passed through a process of cultural adaptation and it was considered adequate. The kappa coefficient showed concordances between almost perfect and low (0.908 and 0.393) for intra-rater reliability, and between 1.000 and 0.376 for inter-rater reliability. The K-weighted values for classifying the risk of fall were 0.710 (intra-rater) and 0.470 (inter-raters), which were considered substantial (0.61 ? K <0.81) and moderate (0.41 ? K <0.61). In the second study, 311 elderly participated, 199 (64%) of them did not fall even once, 60 (19.3%) of them fell once, 52 (16.7%) of them fell two or more times. The estimated probability of fall in 12 months ranged from 25% for the elderly with 0 or 1 risk factor to 60% in the elderly with 6 or more risk factors. The relative risk for the elderly to fall was from 2 to 3; 4 to 5 and 6 or more factors when compared to elderly with 0 to 1 factor was RR = 1.77 (95% CI 1.13 to 2.7); RR = 2.05 (95% CI 1.29 to 3.24) and RR = 2.72 (95% CI 1.63 to 4.56) The estimated probability of fall two times or more ranged from 12% for the elderly with 0 or 1 risk factor to 30% in the elderly with 6 or more risk factors. The relative risk of fall among older people with 2 to 3; 4 to 5 and 6 more factors when compared to elderly with 0 to 1 factor was RR = 1.77 (95% CI 0.88 to 3.57); RR = 1.61 (95% CI 0.74 to 3.53), and RR = 3.52 (95% CI 1.57 to 7.90). Conclusion: QuickScreen was adapted to Brazilian Portuguese and proved to be reliable and capable to distinguish between the elderly who have fallen and the elderly who have fallen two times or more from the ones who have not fallen within a period of 12 months Advisors/Committee Members: UNIVERSIDADE ESTADUAL DE CAMPINAS (CRUESP), Perracini, Monica Rodrigues (advisor), Universidade Estadual de Campinas.

2. Pereira, Alexandre Alves, 1976-. Comparação de duas definições de fragilidade na avaliação de risco para morte em idosos participantes do estudo fibra Campinas: Comparison of two frailty definitions in risk assessment for death of elderly people in campinas fibra study.

Degree: 2016, Universidade Estadual de Campinas

Abstract: Objective: To Compare two operational definition of frailty in risk assessment of death in community-dwelling elderly people. Methods: We used two databases. The first was the database of the FIBRA study (Fragilidade em Idosos Brasileiros), that was composed of 900 older adults resident in Campinas. The second was the database of the Mortality Information System (SIM) of Campinas that was assessed every 6 months from 2009 to 2013. There were included 689 older adults (72.1 ± 5.3; 68.8% women) who scored above the cutoff point for the Mini-Mental State Examination. We used two operational definitions to evaluate frailty: the frailty phenotype (exhaustion, unintentional weight loss, weakness, slowness, low activity) that identifies the frailty by the presence of three or more of the components, and the frailty index as a result of deficits accumulated by the individuals along their life course. The statistical analysis included Chi-square, Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis tests to compare categorical variables; Cox regression to evaluate the association between frailty and mortality, and Kaplan-Meier survival curve analysis. Results: The incidence of mortality was 8.2%. The prevalence of frail elderly according to the frailty index was 38.8%, the pre-frail were 51.6% and those who were robust were 9.6%. The average frailty index was 0.23 ± 0.10, ranging from 0.03 to 0.62. The average value was higher in women than in men. There was no association between frailty index and mortality, but being male and being age 75 and older corresponded to higher risk to death. The prevalence of frail elderly was higher in the frailty index model than in the frailty phenotype model According to the frailty phenotype, frail older adults had higher risk of death than did the non-frail. Conclusion: The frailty phenotype model was a better predictor of mortality in community-dwelling elderly than the frailty index model did. The comparison of operational definitions of frailty can provide insights into the accuracy in predicting adverse health outcomes in elderly people in different populations Advisors/Committee Members: UNIVERSIDADE ESTADUAL DE CAMPINAS (CRUESP), Neri, Anita Liberalesso, 1946- (advisor), Neri, Anita Liberalesso (advisor), Universidade Estadual de Campinas.
