Anticholinergic burden: the unintended consequences for older people
NT PHN and NPS medicinewise would like to invite GPs, nurses and pharmacists to a 1 hour interactive webinar on Anticholinergic burden: the unintended consequences for older people.
Improving the safe use of medicines with anticholinergic effects for older people can have a positive impact
on quality of life and reduce the risk of serious side effects such as dizziness and falls.
This educational visit is part of a program designed to:
- help GPs recognise the extent to which different medicines contribute to anticholinergic burden
- support better outcomes from existing resources and pathways, such as Medication Management
Reviews, whether conducted in a residential aged care facility or at home
- provide a range of tools to assist with reducing anticholinergic burden, such as a fact sheet, decision aid
and action plan for patients and their carers.
