Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use In Older Adults Ages 65+


cure-drugs-healthcare-51004

Hello!

Here is a printable guide accessed from American Geriatrics Society (AGS) regarding potentially inappropriate medication use in older adults ages 65+, called Beers Criteria. It’s a great resource I utilize when working with my clients and patients. The list is updated periodically, with the last update occurring in 2015 by the AGS. Beers Criteria is a great resource and reference for older adults regarding medications that can be potentially inappropriate for use. This is especially important for decreasing risks for falls and limiting adverse drug effects, which could lead to a harmful impact on an individuals health. Hope you find it useful!
