Introduction Elderly patients are particularly susceptible to polypharmacy issues because of age-related changes in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics as well as to chronic diseases resulting in a continuous increasing demand for drugs. Objective This study captures the prevalence of polypharmacy and adherence in Greece and identifies related risk factors in adult patients with diabetes. Design A cross-sectional study was conducted among patients diagnosed with diabetes mellitus attending public and private outpatients' clinics in the regions of Attica and Western Greece...

Objective The resident-directed medication administration program (RDMA) is a personalized medication approach designed to improve the medication administration process in long-term care facilities (LTCFs). This evaluation aimed to document staff experience with the RDMA program compared with staff working in facilities using a facility-directed medication administration program (FDMA). Design This descriptive program evaluation invited staff members to share their experiences with the medication administration process through an anonymous survey...

The Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) is a health information exchange in Maryland that is designed to improve communication among members of the health care team including physicians, nurses, and other health professionals. Senior care pharmacists gained access to CRISP through successful collaborative efforts at both the state and national levels. This involved efforts to address medication-related problems that continue to be a concern during transitions of care, especially for older, vulnerable adults...

Marlene Z Bloom
The 2018-2019 president of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP), has been involved in ASCP for the last 30 years. Her perspective is that all senior care pharmacists are "consultant" pharmacists because they give advice and don't just dispense, whether they work at a chain drug store or a nursing facility. Her highest priority is to meet the educational needs for the members and give them the tools they need to practice their profession.

Sara Pezeshkian, Susan E Conway
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...

Caren McHenry Martin
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...
