Summary

A randomized trial has been designed to determine if this complex intervention can significantly decrease the risk of unplanned readmissions in this very elderly population, compared with usual care.

Description

Drug treatment in elderly is not yet optimal. 20 to 30% of admissions of elderly aged over 80 are related to drug problems, most of them being preventable. To decrease drug related hospitalizations need iatrogenic prevention, compliance improvement, and underuse decrease. A multifaceted intervention has been designed, included three dimensions : 1/ drug optimization 2/ patient and/or caregiver education and 3/ better coordination with home health professionals before discharge.
