Želivská, Nela ; Fialová, Daniela (advisor) ; Pokladníková, Jitka (referee)
Institution/Department: Charles University, Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Kralove, Department of Social and Clinical Pharmacy Title of diploma thesis: Evaluation of the rationality of prescribing of selected potentially inappropriate medications in ambulatory geriatric patients (II.) Diploma thesis supervisor: Assoc.

Polymorbidity and polypharmacotherapy are very common in geriatric patients, for this reason it is also necessary to regularly review drug regimens in older age and address potential drug- related problems. Criteria for potentially inappropriate medications in the aged (PIMs) have been defined by expert groups as a helpful tool to improve the rationality of drug prescribing in older adults. The risks of PIMs in older patients often outweigh their benefits or there is insufficient scientific evidence of adequate efficacy/safety of these drugs in older adults, for which reason the use of PIMs in older patients should be limited and their rationality of prescribing regularly monitored.
