Description

Published research indicates that many older adults in the United States use prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications and dietary supplements, but this can increase their risks for polypharmacy and adverse drug events. Many medications that are commonly used by older adults, such as antiplatelets, anticoagulants, statins, and NSAIDs, are associated with serious
drug-drug interactions, which may further increase this risk.

Objectives

Objective: Review the need for, and results of, a study that sought—using 2010-2011 data—to update estimates of medication use, concurrent use, and drug-drug interactions among older adults throughout the United States and explored if there were any changes in risks of drug-drug interactions since the last time data was collected in 2005-2006.
On completion of this course, the learner will be able to review the need for, and results of, a study that sought—using 2010-2011 data—to update estimates of medication use, concurrent use, and drug-drug interactions among older adults throughout the United States and explored if there were any changes in risks of drug-drug interactions since the last time data was collected in 2005-2006.
