  1. Is there a right age for case finding in elderly people ?

    Article - En anglais

    If age is a useful basis for determining a screening policy the benefit of the resulting interventions should vary with age.

    The choice of the screening age will be such as to maximize the benefit.

    Data from a study of the screening of elderly people by a Health Visitor produced no evidence to support the choice of 75 as minimum age for screening in primary care.

    Indeed there was a suggestion that age might be more useful as a maximum rather than a minimum criterion.
