About Medication Management in Care of Older People

Medication Management in Care of Older People is an accessible introduction to medication management and its role in the management of older people and their medicines. It addresses key issues in medication management, evaluates professional roles and clinical practice initiatives and explores healthcare policy and prescribing initiatives. This text explores the biology and neurobiology of ageing, pathological conditions such as Parkinson s and Alzheimer s disease, medication errors, issues of concordance, long term conditions and the older person, the principles of applied pharmacology and its relationship to older people. Medication Management in Care of Older People will be of interest to health care professionals who either have an interest in medication management and older people, or who are qualified independent or supplementary prescribers, and will enable them to comprehend the principles of applied pharmacology and medication management to enable them to use this knowledge in their daily practice. Illustrates the current issues, concerns and approaches used to manage older people and their medicines. Builds on pertinent current policy and research initiatives including the NSF for Older People and 'Building a Safer NHS for Patients: the role of medication safety' Each chapter features case studies, learning outcomes and implications for practice I found this book to be interesting and highly relevant to OT practice. I would recommend this book as a learning resource to inform, review and support clinical therapy practice. Occupational Therapists could well appreciate many of the contributory factors relating to medication problems with Older People, using this resource could raise own standards, but also assist with reducing the negative impacts of medication issues on older people. - Sarah Montgomery, A&E Occupational Therapist and Communications Officer, (COT Specialist Section Older People), London, UK
