Adverse Drug Events in elderly

Older people have repeatedly reported cases of adverse drug events. These problems have been presented in offices, extended care facilities, and hospitals. They are caused by diuretics, anti-inflammatory drugs, antithrombotic medications, and antidiabetic medications (Pretorius et al., 2013). These events can be prevented through discontinuation of medications, prescription of new medications sparingly, reduction in the number of prescribers, and reconciliation of medications frequently. The plan below describes an initiative to reduce adverse drug events in the elderly.
