Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting AbstractAcademic


In this workshop, we involve leading experts Professors Paul Gallagher, and Stephen Byrne from the University of Cork, Ireland who have developed and implemented the STOPP START criteria for identification of potentially inappropriate medications in the elderly. They will present their views on the challenges of assessing quality and safety of medication use among older populations. Following these presentations, participants will work in small groups of 5-10 through case based scenarios to better understand the challenges and complexity of conducting drug utilization studies around medication quality and safety among older populations. The groups will be facilitated by the panelists and at the end of the workshop groups will feedback and discuss their views.
