Prevalence of potentially inappropriate medications in older adults in Argentina using Beers criteria and the IFAsPIAM List
TLDR
A cross-sectional observational study aimed to identify PIM prescriptions in elderly outpatients, to estimate the prevalence of PIMs, and to evaluate their possible relation with polypharmacy and gender and age of the patients, and used the Beers criteria and the IFAsPIAM List to detect the use. Expand
Assessment of appropriate medication- use by 2015 Beers criteria among elderly critically ill patients in Jordan.
TLDR
PIM prevalence among ICU elderly patients was high (every third patient) and the factors associated with PIM prescription included the total number of medications and presence of diabetes mellitus. Expand
South Korean geriatrics on Beers Criteria medications at risk of adverse drug events
TLDR
In 2011, over half of South Korean geriatrics was exposed to medications recommended to be avoided in geriatrics and their adverse drug event risk warrants close monitoring of their occurrence. Expand
Potentially inappropriate medications in Chinese older adults: a comparison of two updated Beers criteria
TLDR
A high prevalence of potentially inappropriate medication in the Chinese geriatric population, which was associated with the number of prescribed drugs, was shown, which might help pharmacists to detect high-risk drugs and intervene in time. Expand
Potentially inappropriate medications in community-dwelling older adults undertaken as a comprehensive geriatric risk assessment
TLDR
Geriatric risk assessments may provide a vital opportunity to review medication lists by multidisciplinary teams with a view to reducing PIMs and unnecessary polypharmacy in older adults. Expand
Consequences of ignoring patient diagnoses when using the 2015 Updated Beers Criteria
TLDR
Although restricted access to patients’ diagnoses may limit the judgement of Beers PIM-qualifying criteria, this limitation had no effect on the number of PIM identified. Expand
STOPPFrail (Screening Tool of Older Persons Prescriptions in Frail adults with limited life expectancy): consensus validation
TLDR
STOPPFrail comprises 27 criteria relating to medications that are potentially inappropriate in frail older patients with limited life expectancy and may assist physicians in deprescribing medications in these patients. Expand
