Research output: ProfessionalArticle

Older patients use many drugs, while there is hardly any information about the effect and safety of these in elderly patients. It appears that only 56%, and 20% of the information required by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) concerning use of medication in the elderly is stated in the patient information leaflet and in the Dutch Pharmacotherapeutic Compass, respectively. The Expertise Centre PHarmacotherapy in Old Persons (Ephor) gathered all available information about drug prescribing in older patients for a number of drug groups from national and international literature, and provided prescribing advice. This information will be made available to users of the Dutch Pharmacotherapeutic Compass, for quick accessibility.
