What are the Effects of Ageing on Medicines?

Ageing is inevitable. But just how do these physiological changes affect the growing list of medications that we take as we get older? In this informative and educational talk, Dr Treasure McGuire takes us through the common effects of ageing, and how these declines and changes affect the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of medications.

A brief clip that repeats the longer lecture about risks of polypharmacy and older patients and the risks of falls in this population. Too brief to make sense of this topic on its own, but a good recap of the longer version.
