Optimizing medication therapy is an essential part of caring for an older patient and it presents unique challenges. Particular care must be taken when fall risk-increasing medications are used. A recognized challenge is the proper selection of medication dosing regimens when genetic polymorphisms have been shown to affect medication clearance. In this webinar, Dr. Hachad will discuss the utility of pharmacogenomics testing to guide the appropriate use of fall-risk increasing medications in the elderly. In this webinar, Dr, Hachad will discuss the benefits of testing for variants that can help identify patients at risk for medication-induced falls and using a medication management platform to help mitigate the risk.
