#9: AGS Geriatrics Virtual Patient Case: Perioperative Medication Management and Polypharmacy in the Context of a Patient with Comorbidities Taking Multiple Medications Presenting for Elective Surgery American Geriatrics Society
There is a significant shortfall of trained geriatricians to meet the healthcare needs of the older adult population, and older people are likely to need non-primary care from non-geriatrician specialists. The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) developed the Geriatrics Virtual Patient Cases in order to provide non-geriatrician specialists with guidance on best practices in the care of older adults. This specific case will provide non-geriatrician diplomates with information on polypharmacy and potentially inappropriate medication use in geriatric patients during perioperative management.
