Beers criteria medication list

(no author information available yet)
The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) Beers Criteria® (AGS Beers Criteria®) for Potentially Inappropriate Medication (PIM) Use in Older Adults are widely used by clinicians, educators, researchers, healthcare administrators, and regulators. Since 2011, the AGS has been the steward of the criteria and has produced updates on a 3-year cycle. The AGS Beers Criteria® is an explicit list of PIMs that are typically best avoided by older adults in most circumstances or under specific situations, such as in certain diseases or conditions...

Background: The Beers Criteria were developed with the aim of improving the safety of medicines among older persons. While the association between the Beers' list of potentially inappropriate medicines (PIMs) and adverse drug reactions (ADRs) among older Caucasians is contentious, the ability of the Criteria to predict ADRs among older persons in Africa remains unexplored. Objectives: This study aimed to compare the prevalence of PIMs and ADRs among hospitalized older persons in Nigeria and South Africa, and to determine the association between the 2015 American Geriatrics Society-Beers (AGS-Beers) PIMs and ADRs...

Objective : To evaluate influence of education level of older patients on polypharmacy, potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) listed in Beer's Criteria, and unplanned hospitalization. Methods : A cross-sectional study was conducted among older people aged ≥65 years between 1 December 2017 and 28 February 2018. For data analysis, descriptive statistics and logistic regression analysis were employed. Results : Among 385 older patients, 88.8% were prescribed PIMs and 56.4% underwent PIMs associated unplanned hospitalization...

Background and objectives: Due to physiological and pharmacological variations, geriatrics are at high risk of experiencing life-threatening outcomes related to the use of potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs). Thus, the present study aims to evaluate prescribing practices of PIMs among elderly patients who may lead to unplanned hospitalization and associated risk factors. Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in different hospitals of Lahore, Pakistan...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Elderly populations usually use more medications than any other age group and are therefore more susceptible to potentially inappropriate prescribing (PIP), drug-drug interactions, and the related health consequences. In this study, we aimed to determine PIP prevalence and explore the most common potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) prescribed. METHODS: This was a retrospective study involving elderly patients admitted at King Abdulaziz Medical City-Jeddah (KAMC-JD), between November 2014 and January 2015...

PURPOSE: To assess the changes in use of potentially inappropriate medication (PIM) as defined by the 2015 Beers criteria, the EU(7)-PIM, and the PRISCUS list over a 6-year period and to identify determinants for current and future PIM use with a particular focus on geriatric syndromes. METHODS: In a German cohort of 2878 community-dwelling adults aged ≥ 60 years, determinants of the use of ≥ 1 PIM were identified in multivariable logistic regression (cross-sectional analysis) and weighted generalized estimating equation models (longitudinal analysis)...

AIM: The present study investigated the status of potentially harmful drug-drug interactions (PHDI) in older adults, to obtain insight into factors that influence the risk of PHDI. METHODS: The present study included Korean people aged ≥65 years who were prescribed one or more drugs included in the list of PHDI under the Beers Criteria 2015 from January to December, 2016 (n = 1 257 317). PHDI were defined based on the Beers Criteria 2015. Among 10 PHDI, a prevalence of >5% was taken to be clinically significant, and the relationships between multiple variables and PHDI were examined...

To identify factors that influence use of potentially inappropriate psychotropic drugs among elderly residents living in nursing homes (NH). Cross-sectional, multicentre study among 65+ years NH residents, based on queries performed on the PATHOS database and on prescription information from residents' medical data. Medications were coded using the Anatomical Therapeutical Chemical classification. Psychotropic agents were classed using Delay and Deniker's classification, and the Beers Criteria (Beers list 2015 update) were used to identify potentially inappropriate psychotropic drugs (PIPs)...

OBJECTIVE: To assess and compare, according to Beers and STOPP criteria, the frequency and causes of potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) in elderly, as well as the relationship between PIMs use and patient's treatment satisfaction, evaluated using the Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire for Medications (TSQM). METHOD: 350 patients (mean age = 73.49 years), taking a total of 1893 medications, were enrolled from community pharmacies. RESULTS: 6...

BACKGROUND: Potentially inappropriate medications (PIM) for the older adults are those with an unfavorable risk-benefit ratio when more effective and safe therapeutic alternatives are available and is an important public health problem. PURPOSE: To analyze the factors associated with the use of PIM by the older adults and to investigate the agreement of PIM use frequency using the 2015 American Geriatric Society Beers Criteria for Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use in Older Adults - 2015 AGS Beers Criteria, the Brazilian consensus on potentially inappropriate medication for older adults (BCPIM) and the European union list of potentially inappropriate medications - EU (7)-PIM List...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to determine patient characteristics associated with potentially inappropriate medication (PIM) use and its impact on outcomes for patients with breast or colorectal cancer receiving adjuvant chemotherapy. METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database, linked to Medicare claims, was used. The cohort included patients who were 66 years old or older and were diagnosed with stage II or III breast or colorectal cancer between July 1, 2007, and December 31, 2009...

AIM: Lack of electronic assessment of medication lists in electronic health records is a barrier for more generalized use of potentially inappropriate medications (PIM) lists, designed for older adults. The aim was to construct a European repository of explicit criteria on PIM, suitable for electronic assessment. METHODS: PIM description, medication information, clinical information and level of evidence was entered. Criteria with unclear medication specifications were excluded...

PURPOSE: The prescription of potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) is associated with an increase in adverse events, prescribing cascades, high health-care costs, morbidity, and mortality in the elderly. The overarching objective of this study is to examine the prevalence of PIMs in the elderly, applying the 2012 American Geriatrics Society Beers criteria for the study period 2012-2014, and the updated 2015 Beers criteria for 2015. METHODS: The study population (N = 70,479) included a continuously recruited national cohort of community-dwelling older (aged ≥ 65 years) New Zealanders who had undertaken the International Resident Assessment Instrument-Home Care (interRAI-HC) assessments between September 2012 and October 2015...

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) or potentially inappropriate associations (PIAs) prescribed knowingly are associated with patient monitoring. DESIGN: Prospective observational study. SETTING: Geriatric units (n = 56) in 28 hospitals. PARTICIPANTS: Inpatients aged 75 and older (N = 1,327). MEASUREMENTS: Potentially inappropriate prescriptions (PIP) were defined as a PIM or a PIA selected by an expert board from lists of explicit criteria (Beers, Priscus, Laroche, French Health Agency) using a Delphi process...

Elderly people are the most rapidly growing sector of our society. Due to their multimorbidity they are exposed to a multitude of medications, which are accompanied by chances and risks. The problem of inappropriate medication in the elderly is exacerbated by the fact that only a holistic view can help these patients and that this is predominantly the responsibility of the general practitioner. The closely measured paid contact time is often insufficient to optimize complex medications. Clinically successfully tested aids in the form of lists give reason for hope: in particular, the positive/negative assessment of limitations of the elderly with respect to drugs by the STOPP/START criteria and the FORTA classification are clinically successful aids...
