Potentially Inappropriate Antipsychotic Medications Use Among the Elderly - Impacts of 2012 Update to the Beers Criteria
Des Moines University faculty, staff, and students.
Dr. Lim’s research is broadly focused on evaluating health policy changes and its association with patients’ health service use and health outcomes from an economic perspective. Specifically, he is interested in exploring how people alter their prescription drug consumption patterns and healthcare decision-making behaviors, focusing on non-properly used medications, responding to the implementation of new health policies and interventions.
In this seminar, Dr. Lim will explain whether the Beers Criteria is an effective way to improve the quality of pharmaceutical care for the elderly particularly focusing on antipsychotic agents. He will also discuss whether and to what extent the 2012 update of the Beers Criteria had an impact on the use of potentially inappropriate antipsychotic medications among the elderly.
