Part three of a six-part series will cover – Medication Management

The CDC states that although many types of medications have been linked to falls, the evidence is strongest for only a few drug categories. Proper medication management can potentially reduce interactions and side effects which may lead to falls.

This class will identify medication risk factors and prudent discussions to have with your doctor regarding eliminating medications if there is no active indication; reducing doses of necessary medications to the lowest effective dose and avoiding prescribing medications for an older person where the risks from side effects outweighs the benefit.
