Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

  • The presenters in this session will identify some of the top diagnoses or medication classes associated with polypharmacy (including hypertension, diabetes mellitus, gastroesophageal reflux disease, nutritional deficiencies, constipation, and chronic pain), review the evidence-based approach for appropriate medication management of each, and lead a panel/audience discussion on the practical approaches to applying the evidence in practice. This session will not focus on why polypharmacy is bad; instead, using an interactive approach, it will offer practical solutions to reducing the effects of polypharmacy in complex, multimorbid adults and/or adults with limited life expectancy.

    Learning Objectives: 
  • Identify common chronic disease conditions associated with inappropriate prescribing and medication errors in older adults.
  • Discuss strategies to reduce medication burden in complex patients with advanced age or limited life expectancy.
  • Describe interprofessional strategies to reduce or prevent polypharmacy and inappropriate medication use.
  • Utilize drug-specific tools and protocols to reduce polypharmacy and medication errors.
