A Bibliometric Analysis of the Global Research on Geriatric Interdisciplinary Team From 2000 to 2023

  • Objective To analyze international research trends and cutting-edge hot spots in the field of Geriatric Interdisciplinary Team (GIT) from 2000 to 2023. Methods A search was conducted on the Web of Science database, focusing on 'Article' or 'Review' document types, and including English documents related to GIT published between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2023. The literature content was extracted using VOSviewer 1.6.18 software to create a cooperation network diagram of countries/regions and institutions, as well as a timeline diagram of keyword cooccurrence relationships. Co-occurrence and cluster analysis of authors, research institutions, countries/regions, and other information was carried out using CiteSpace 6.1.R6 software. Furthermore, the 'bibliometrix' package of R language was employed to analyze the evolutionary trend of keywords in the literature. Results A total of 965 documents related to the Geriatric Interdisciplinary Team (GIT) were collected, consisting of 921 Articles and 44 Reviews. The global publication output in this area has experienced significant growth since 2000. The United States leads in both the number of publications, accounting for 357 articles (37.0%), and total citations, totaling 8656. The University of Michigan in the United States has the highest number of publications, with 27 articles (2.59%), while Johan Flamaing from the University of Leuven in Belgium emerges as the most prolific author with 12 articles (2.8%). The Journal of The American Geriatrics Society holds the highest number of documents related to geriatric medicine, with 72 articles (7.5%). Key topics in this field encompass elderly, frailty, geriatric assessment, comprehensive geriatric assessment, and hip fracture. Conclusions Recent research on Geriatric Interdisciplinary Teams (GIT) has emphasized the importance of conducting thorough geriatric assessments and implementing targeted GIT interventions for elderly patients with frailty and hip fractures. Additionally, studies have explored GIT interventions in addressing inappropriate medication use, fall prevention, and managing conditions such as tumors, dementia, and delirium in the elderly population. Looking ahead, there is a growing need for high-quality qualitative research on GIT for elderly patients receiving longterm or home care, as well as on educational initiatives in geriatric medicine that incorporate GIT principles.
