Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are commonly prescribed for treatment of acid-related gastrointestinal disorders. PPI use is approved for a duration of 2 to 12 weeks, depending on complication and severity. Many users lack an appropriate indication for continued therapy past the recommended duration. Long-term PPI use is associated with several adverse drug events, including acute interstitial nephritis, fractures, and Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD). Cautious prescribing and regular monitoring is essential, especially for older adults, as they may be at higher risk for these adverse effects...

Objective To review current literature reporting outcomes associated with utilization of the Medication Regimen Complexity Index (MRCI) with older adults in an outpatient setting. Data sources The National Library of Medicine via PubMed, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts, and the Cochrane Database were used to identify clinical trials evaluating outcomes associated with utilization of the MRCI. The medical subject heading terms "geriatrics" and "medication adherence" were used in combination with key terms "medication regimen complexity index" and "medication complexity...

Prescriptions for opioids and opioid-related overdoses have been on the rise-and in the news-in the United States for more than a decade. New guidelines and legislation related to opioid prescribing provide clinical challenges for many pharmacists and prescribers, particularly in the treatment of older adults with chronic pain. Careful patient selection, along with proper opioid dosing and monitoring, enables the pharmacist and prescriber to continue to treat the older adult with pain effectively.

REVIEW
Tiana Luczak, Michael Swanoski
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one the of the most common types of infections in adults older than 65 years of age. Preventing UTIs with prophylactic antibiotics increases the risk of side effects and microbial resistance, and is costly. Cranberry fruit and juices contain the compound proanthrocyanidins (PACs), specifically proanthrocyanidin-A, which exerts antiadhesion characteristics against bacteria. Cranberry products therefore have been an attractive, nonantibiotic preventative option for UTIs; however, the current literature supporting cranberry use in older adults is controversial...

Daniel Hu, Sarah Wurster
PURPOSE: There are a limited number of case reports in the literature which describe hyponatremia/syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) induced by duloxetine. SUMMARY: This case report adds to the literature by describing a patient who developed hyponatremia/SIADH after two doses of duloxetine. CONCLUSION: Hyponatremia/SIADH can develop rapidly after initiation of duloxetine. Clinicians should be aware of the potential for this adverse drug reaction, particularly in elderly females...

A wide range of changes are in the future for health care: value-based reimbursement, delivery of integrated services, the continued breakdown of silos, and interoperability maximizing communication/information exchange. The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists recently held a conference focusing on key innovations in post-acute/long-term/senior care and how pharmacists can function successfully in this new paradigm in ways that promote quality medication management, address polypharmacy, improve patients' quality of life, reduce costs, and eliminate avoidable readmissions...

OBJECTIVE: Potentially inappropriate medications carry significant burden and costs to nursing facility residents and health systems. The goal of this study was to survey nursing facility providers from across the United States to describe the current utilization of deprescribing, and perceptions and desired components of a deprescribing program, in nursing facilities to reduce potentially inappropriate medications. DESIGN/SETTING/PARTICIPANTS/MEASUREMENT: We surveyed health care providers who attended the 2017 AMDA-The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine Annual Conference-in Phoenix, Arizona...

Soyoung Park, Zachary A Marcum
Many older adults experience some degree of cognitive impairment, an important risk factor for medication nonadherence. To prevent negative health outcomes secondary to medication nonadherence, identifying interventions that improve medication adherence for older adults with cognitive impairment is crucial. Other barriers to medication adherence include the structure of the health care system as well as socioeconomic and therapyrelated obstacles. The use of pharmacist-led and population-level interventions hold promise for providing optimal medication adherence for older adults with cognitive impairment...

Alexandra Cambra, Jeannette Y Wick
Concierge pharmacy is an emerging area of practice that appears to be well suited for pharmacists who prefer flexibility in geriatric practice, a system in which patients pay a fee for personalized care and access to their pharmacists. Older adults are a natural population for concierge pharmacists because of their individual increasing medical needs. At this time, concierge pharmacists tend to provide care to individuals who can afford to pay out-of-pocket or who are auxiliary personnel in medical offices, which provides payment...
