Abstract

Being a clinical provider in today's health care environment has become complex with more levels of care to negotiate. Who is caught in the middle of this complexity? Senior citizens. As we evolve into the new quality model, new problems and complexities occur. Numerous protocols and guidelines necessitate the initiation of drugs for given diagnoses and aggressive treatments. This article discusses geriatric polypharmacy from two practitioners' viewpoints: Zhe Chen, MD, discusses the point of view of a physician provider, and Anthony Buonanno, MD, discusses providers' roles in their own families.
