SPONSORED BY: UWM’s Center for Aging and Translational Research. As we age, our bodies change along with our ability to metabolize and utilize medications. Attention must be paid to correctly prescribing and using drugs. Fortunately, there are tools to assess medication regimens for safety and efficacy. This session will explore the trends in prescription drug use, misuse, and abuse in older adults as well as strategies for ensuring that medications are used for healing rather than harming.
