Course Overview
This course will describe how the pharmacist is uniquely qualified to assure safe drug use by older patients. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians will be able to use existing tools in identifying polypharmacy and the potential for adverse drug events in providing pharmaceutical care to older patients. Through the use of a patient case study, pharmacists will employ strategies to identify high risk medications and avoid dangerous adverse events associated with specific drugs and drug classes.

At the conclusion of this continuing education lesson, the pharmacist will be able to:

  • State the current statistics on aging and risks from adverse drug events (ADEs). 
  • Employ effective methods to identify and screen for polypharmacy.
  • Identify medications with a higher level of risk when used in older patients.
  • Outline resources to assess adverse drug events (ADEs) in older patients and methods of access. 
  • List common ADEs that may lead to prescribing additional medications and polypharmacy.
  • Describe best practices for limiting ADEs associated with medications commonly used in older patients.
