Moving Older Adults from Medication Misuse to Medication Safety
Although older adults are at high risk of medication misuse, it is often unintentional, which offers prevention opportunities. Join us to better understand the context surrounding medication use and misuse in community-dwelling older adults, including how prescribers, family caregivers and older adults themselves may unwittingly contribute to serious consequences. Medication adherence and safety strategies, prevention opportunities, and resources will be examined.
