In this webinar we will define polypharmacy and discuss its prevalence and impact on patient outcomes as well as age-related changes that alter the pharmacology of cancer treatments and affect treatment-related effects. We will review tools to screen for polypharmacy and medication adherence, plus discuss the latest research on how to effectively reduce polypharmacy. Participants will takeaway practical steps or initiatives that can be implemented at your program or practice to improve medication management.
