Geriatric Update: Cognitive Decline and Polypharmacy

1.50 CME/MOC
1.50 AANP | 0.75 Pharmacology

As we see more patients with cognitive impairment, understanding the real-world care for this population is vital. This lecture will review the most efficient means of assessing cognitive impairment, examine common issues in caring for the older adult with cognitive impairment, and discuss pharmacologic/non-pharmacologic means of treating patients. Dr. Lindquist will also address updates on what medications are useless/useful and what testing should be avoided. Polypharmacy is common among older adults and associated with adverse outcomes. This case-based session will review how to avoid inappropriate prescribing, recognize adverse drug events, and identify opportunities to deprescribe. Dr. Bradley will review recent literature updates that inform our prescribing practices including the 2019 AGS Beers criteria. Tips to enhance safe medication use will be shared. The updates will be followed by an “Ask the Expert” session with Drs. Lindquist and Bradley where they will review common questions and take questions from attendees.
