Currently, I am working on a Master thesis project which focuses on the development of a business case within the realm of Telecare. The aim is to deliver a product or service (potentially a game platform) that stimulates children with impaired mobility to improve their physical fitness level. I have found a lot on impaired mobility, games and telecare but no specific articles in which I can see or find a link to physical fitness. If anybody could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated. (I have been searching on Business Source Premier, maybe this is not the right search engine for the topic?).

Polypharmacy is a common finding among older adults with multiple chronic conditions. Medication interactions could lead to potentially serious adverse drug events. Moreover, adverse drug events could be mistaken for a new disease symptom resulting in additional medication prescription. Since PTs usually see older adults with multiple chronic conditions, it is important to assess for polypharmacy and its associated adverse drug reactions as part of the plan of care. Do you know of any evidence in the primary literature investigating this particular role of PTs and its effect on patient care?
