Lecture Overview

Ageing is inevitable. But just how do these physiological changes affect the growing list of medications that we take as we get older?

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.
