The use of explicit criteria can play an important role in the identification of areas for pharmaceutical interventions. Purpose This study aimed to characterize and to quantify the occurrence of PIM detected during medication...
This poster describes the results of the project SOS Pharma idoso focusing on the detection of potentially inappropriate medicines in elderly polypharmacy residing in nursing homes. Only results obtained from the application of the Beers criteria (AGS, 2012) are presented.
Introduction: Elderly population is frequently polymedicated, including with potentially inappropriate medications (PIM), sometimes instead of preventive medication, designated as potentially prescribing omissions (POM).
