So confusing and scary to see the length of lists of drugs that so many geriatric patients have on their health histories. This course helped categorize them and give me a good handle on recognizing what they're prescribed for.
Helpful breakdown of the many drugs our elderly patients are taken. Can't believe how many drugs are being prescribed for older patients.
