Cardiovascular Conference Series: Effective Medication Management in Older Adults
Poor adherence to treatment regimens has long been recognized as a substantial roadblock to achieving better outcomes for patients. Non-adherence to medications affects the quality and length of life and has been associated with negative health outcomes and increasing healthcare costs. The problem of non-adherence is particularly troublesome in older patients who are affected by multiple chronic diseases and for this reason receive multiple treatments.
Dr. Cooper-DeHoff, Pharm D will address the prevalence of CVD in older adults and associated multimorbidity and polypharmacy, how physicians are considering deprescribing in light of patient-centered decision-making, and provide strategies to improve medication adherence in older patients.
