  1. Comprehensive geriatric assessment : a meta-analysis of controlled trials.

    Article - En anglais

    There is disagreement on the usefulness of comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) due to conflicting results from individual trials.

    We did a meta-analysis on 28 controlled trials comprising 4959 subjects allocated to one of five CGA types and 4912 controls.

    Published data were supplemented with reanalysed data provided by the original investigators.

    We calculated combined odds ratios of important outcomes by pooling data from individual trials with multivariate logistic regression.

    Combined odds ratio (95% confidence interval) of living at home at follow-up was 1.68 (1.17-2.41) for geriatric evaluation and management units, 1.49 (1.12-1.98) for hospital-home assessment services, and 1.20 (1.05-1.37) for home assessment services.
