Senior living residents experience adverse effects when they are prescribed multiple medications at a rate that is more than clinically necessary for treatment.
During an hour-long webinar that will begin at 1 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Oct. 2, attendees will earn a continuing education credit while learning how proper treatment can mitigate polypharmacy practices, why polypharmacy goes beyond the number of medications prescribed, and the important role that pharmacists and prescribing physicians play.
Speaking will be T.J. Griffin, RPh, chief pharmacy officer at assisted living and skilled nursing pharmacy PharMerica. PharMerica is supporting the online event.
