Abstract

The complex and comprehensive management of polypharmacy among individuals who reside in supported living centers requires an interprofessional approach that includes the collaborative efforts of disciplines such as medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and psychology. As a result of this collaboration, health care outcomes can be optimized, and the different disciplines can also become aware of the contributions that each department can make towards improving patients' quality of care through the reduction of unnecessary medication prescribing.
