Improving Medication Management for Older Adult Clients


The management of medications for older adults in long-term care facilities presents unique challenges and calls for a dynamic process of ongoing assessment, transitions, and shifting care. Polypharmacy is common for nursing home residents and frequently related to both increased adverse drug reactions and a risk of inappropriate prescribing. Additionally, the management of these medication regimens is complicated by the frail population’s vulnerability to both errors and adverse drug reactions related to functional health and individual responses.


The purpose of this evidence-based guideline is to improve medication management practices for older adults who reside in long-term care facilities. The goals of this guideline include reducing inappropriate prescribing, decreasing polypharmacy, avoiding adverse events, and maintaining function. Written 2004; Revised 2012.
