The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Beers Criteria® (AGS Beers Criteria®) for Potentially Inappropriate Medication (PIM) Use in Older Adults are widely used by clinicians, educators, researchers, healthcare administrators, and regulators. Since 2011, the AGS has been the steward of the criteria and has produced updates on a 3‐year cycle. The AGS Beers Criteria® is an explicit list of PIMs that are typically best avoided by older adults in most circumstances or under specific situations, such… Expand
Expert consensus on clinical applicability of the American Geriatrics Society-Beers Criteria to older persons in Africa: An exploratory validation study.
TLDR
The 2015 AGS-Beers Criteria recommendations were adapted to the Nigerian and South African health care contexts and may serve as a guide to clinicians when prescribing medications to older persons in Nigeria and South Africa. Expand

It is recommended to revise each patient's medications prescription to avoid inappropriate prescribing and hence decrease the prevalence of PIMs. Expand
A challenge: The American Geriatric Society needs to address the lack of inclusion of older adults in new drug evaluation
TLDR
Neither the American Geriatric Society nor its members play a role in the US Food and Drug Administration evaluation process for new drugs for conditions that may be common in older adults, and this may partially explain the lack of information regarding older adults when new drugs are approved. 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

Identifying potentially inappropriate medication (PIM) use in geriatric oncology.
TLDR
A theoretical case and proposed medication management strategy, which combines the use of objective review with Beer's criteria and clinical judgement with the Medication Appropriateness Index (MAI), can serve to identify PIMs while recognizing factors unique to the geriatric oncology population. Expand
Beers AGS 2019 criteria in very old hospitalized patients.
TLDR
In the present series of oldest-old hospitalized patients, significant rates of PIM were found, especially for drugs prescribed as "If Necessary", thereby increasing the risk of side-effects to that of the common polypharmacy in this age group. Expand
Frailty and potentially inappropriate medications using the 2019 Beers Criteria: findings from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (ALSWH)
TLDR
This study determined the use of potentially inappropriate medications according to frailty status using the Beers Criteria 2019, identified medications that should be flagged as potentially inappropriate and harmful depending on individual health factors, and determined the association between frailty and PIMs. Expand

Determinants of Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use among Community‐Dwelling Older Adults
TLDR
The results suggest that physicians attempt to avoid PIM use in the oldest old but have inadequate focus on the high-PIM-risk conditions, and medication intensity appears to be in the pathway between both quality-enabling and need-complexity characteristics and Pim use. Expand
