Cover image for lecture: Medication Safety and Older Adults

Lecture Overview

As people age, their ability to metabolise medicines changes. As many older adults take multiple medicines, it is essential that their effect on one another be understood by those administering them. Failure to identify unnecessary and unsafe use of medicines, potential contraindications, and serious interactions puts an older adult and the person administering medicines at a high risk.
