Recent Trends of Common Factors of Geriatric Medicine and Rehabilitation Medicine


Journal of Health and Medical Research publishes articles covering wide range of disciplines including Biochemistry, Pharmacology and Toxicology focused on developing effective medicines, efficient procedures dealing both preclinical aspects like molecular and cellular research, in vitro and animal model studies as well as clinical trials. Health research topics relating to disease prevalence, risk factors, public health intervention outcomes as well as healthcare economics and medical research topics including etiology of disease, prognosis, management and treatment, functional aspects of human physiology, mechanisms of health improvement and reduction in the burden of disease are covered in this journal.

Editorial board members of this journal are very active and makes the issue releases in time. Peer review process is done in a qualitative way so as to publish the article very easily

In recent years, the proportion of the elderly population has been increasing in developed countries such as Japan. Then, the necessity for geriatric medicine has been expected in the medical system. Various health and medical problems have emerged so far, which could be roughly divided into disease (disorder) or disability. They have been managed adequately according to the situations and countries

Geriatric medicine and rehabilitation medicine have similar points of view. They have common concept for stages as disease (disorder), impairment, disability, and handicap. WHO has announced International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) is useful for evaluation of geriatric syndrome, such as frailty, sarcopenia, and cognitive impairment. Frailty seems to be found approximately 10-14% for more than 65 years. Sarcopenia implies a situation that physical function is reduced by muscle loss. It can be diagnosed by the Asian Working Group for sarcopenia (AWGS) or the European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People (EWGSOP2) criteria
