Medication Listmania

Elderly patients who take many medications often have difficulty in remembering them all.

Elderly patients who take many medications often have difficulty in remembering them all. To keep track of what older patients are taking, give them a form at their first visit on which they can list all current medications. At each subsequent visit, ask them to cross out any drugs they no longer take and add any new ones.
