dc.description.abstractA poster presentation about assessing medication appropriateness in a long-term elderly care setting. Introduction: Literature shows that the incidence of preventable adverse drug events in long-term care (LTC) facilities for the elderly is higher than that in ambulatory care. Studies have reported that pharmacist interventions in overseas LTC facilities were successful in improving patient outcomes. The Screening Tool of Older Persons’ potentially inappropriate Prescriptions (STOPP) criteria assess whether there are any inappropriate medications being given to elderly patients. Aim: To use the STOPP criteria as a tool in order to be able to assess and highlight inappropriate medication recommended to the elderly at St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) LTC facility, in Malta.en_GB
