Abstract
In 2018, new recommendations about the prevention of falls and fractures emphasized the benefits from exercise and from multimodal prevention programs but did not endorse any more vitamin D supplementation for falls prevention. Results were contrasted for several studies testing exercise (negative) and cognitive training (mixed results) in the management of older patients suffering from neurocognitive disorders. The new direct oral anticoagulants are increasingly prescribed in older patients despite the paucity of data. New information has been released in 2018 from « real-world » data that seem reassuring about their risk/benefit ratio in old-old patients, provided a careful prescription. Finally, the Mediterranean diet is still gaining credit with a new study showing its benefits in preventing frailty in community-dwelling older persons.
