Reducing medication regimen complexity for older patients prior to discharge from hospital: feasibility and barriers
Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics, 06/08/2012Elliott RA et al.
This is the first study to explore pharmacist–led medication regimen simplification and barriers to regimen simplification in the hospital setting. It demonstrates that simplification of older inpatients' regimens is feasible when training in regimen simplification is provided. The main barrier to regimen simplification appears to be lack of pharmacist time.
