Project Title: Development of Process for Polypharmacy Management and Reduction
With the growing prevalence of polypharmacy (patients taking 5+ medications) in long-term care, there is an increasing need for the optimization of medication assessment and review. Using York Care Centre for analysis, this project will seek to identify appropriate criteria for medication management and reduction, with the ultimate goal of developing a mobile application to be used by clinicians and caregivers.
