Patient Level Factors that can Contribute to Adverse Events in Older Women – A Retrospective study of Women in the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health.
We are exploring patient level factors that can contribute to adverse events in the aging population during episodes of hospitalization. We would like to look at the old and mid-age cohort of women as older people and women are both higher user of hospitals. By looking at the survey details of patients who have had adverse events, we would like to assess the effects of aging like frailty and comorbidities, cognitive deficits including dementia and related conditions, and social living circumstances including availability of social support on the adverse events.
