Instructor: Hedva Barenholtz Levy

 

Taking multiple medications might be the “new norm,” but medications come with both benefits and harms. What steps can we take to reduce the risk of unwanted or adverse effects? This session will explore medication safety issues that are specific to older adults. Participants will gain a better appreciation of how healthy aging includes an informed approach to medications and what questions we need to be asking. Tips and strategies for avoiding medication problems and errors will be discussed.
