Description:
Inappropriate prescribing in older people is a major global health problem, with serious consequences for patients, principally adverse reactions and morbidity. This team will collect data in Cork and compare with similar data from Northern Ireland. Objectives: Compare the efficacy of the Beers criteria, developed in the USA, and the STOPP criteria developed at University College Cork; quantify the cost of inappropriate prescribing; and evaluate the opinions of long-term care residents on their pharmacotherapy treatments.
