Your Resource for Medication Safety

Decision-Making! How many times have you heard “Always seek the advice of your pharmacist and/or physician before making changes to your medication regimen?” As simple as it sounds, it is not always easy, especially if one sees several doctors for multiple conditions or is transitioning from one care setting to another. In order to make the best use of your medicines, it is important to take an active role in decisions about your treatment. We are here to help support you, your loved ones and caregivers navigate the complexities associated with safe medication use.

Our purpose is to provide resources and tools to educate older adults and caregivers about principles and practices associated with safe and appropriate use of medicines to improve outcomes and quality of life.

Keeping up-to-date records of your medicines, knowing the right questions to ask, and how to seek the advice of an expert who specializes in in the use of medications in older adults, will help to lessen concerns and empower you to make informed decisions about your care.
