It is important to have patients medication reviewed regularly, especially th elderly. Do they need it? If stopping regular medication do it gradually otherwise it can cause more harm Positive changes can be made ie: Regular exercise to improve gait, balance, constipation sleeplessness. Regular vision assessments . Home/facility evaluation to improve safety.

It would have been so much better to complete the case study instead of editing the process that you're trying to describe. The lecture seemed to start off as one thing, then by the end I was struggling to remember the point and title of the lecture. Too much editing to make this a complete educating package.
