The Center for Healthy Aging in Washington maintains a Web site with multiple resources to assist elderly consumers and caregivers in safe medication management practices.
The site includes a form for consumers to track their medications, a listing of dozens of medications that are potentially inappropriate for the elderly, a guide to safe use of diabetes medications, tips for preventing "polypharmacy" problems when a patient is taking more drugs than needed, lesson plans for medication management, and new care management strategies, among other information.
Available tool kits cover establishing a community medication management improvement system, and helping seniors use medications safely. To access the Web site, click here.
