Reducing Risk of Adverse Drug Events by Identifying Multi-Drug, Simultaneous Interactions

Online Webinar

This webinar will describe the pervasiveness of multi-drug, simultaneous interactions and their influence on adverse drug events, especially in patients with polypharmacy. This webinar will also discuss how pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are uniquely positioned to identify and minimize these risks.

Upon completion of this activity, pharmacists should be able to:

  • Discuss the risk for multi-drug interactions associated with polypharmacy.
  • Explain several medication risk mitigation concepts, including anticholinergic burden, competitive inhibition, and others.
  • Apply principles of medication risk mitigation to a patient case scenario.

Upon completion of this activity, technicians should be able to:

  • Discuss the risk for multi-drug interactions associated with polypharmacy.
  • Explain several medication risk mitigation concepts, including anticholinergic burden, competitive inhibition, and others.
  • Apply principles of medication risk mitigation to a patient case scenario (for example, to help ask clarifying questions and identify potential risk for escalation).
