November Webinar – Medication Overload: The Dangers for our Older Adult Population

About this Webinar

How Many Medications is Too Many Medications? As we age, we see more chronic conditions, and with those conditions more medications. Are they all really necessary? Prescriptions, Over the Counter, Vitamins & Supplements and Herbals can all add up to a hefty pill burden. Is such a burden safe? This presentation will address the “normalization” of overtreatment and the hidden dangers medication overload can cause in our older adult population.
