CelebrAGE event: Online panel discussion on the benefits and challenges of online art activities for older adults
Date: Weds 9th June 10am
POLYPHARMACY IN OLDER ADULTS: CHALLENGES AND TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES
As more older adults live with long-term conditions, there is rise in the use of more than one medication in the management of their health. Inappropriate polypharmacy may have societal consequences such as more prevalent adverse drug effects and increased healthcare costs.
CelebrAGE collaborated with SPINE UK to organise this online webinar, which took place on 24 September 2020. Keynnote speakers Professor Nina Barnett (London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust & Visiting Professor, Kingston University, London) and Professor John Overington (CIO, Medicines Discovery Catapult) discussed challenges and current research to tackle the challenge of polypharmacy in older adults.
