Project Description

This project examined inappropriate use of medication by both cognitively impaired and cognitively intact people aged 75 or over, building on a study in which cognitive impairment is identified and medications recorded.

The project used a variety of sources to define what medication is inappropriate, including the Beers criteria. The project team then discussed the medication use with the GPs who were prescribing it. The final report can be downloaded below.
