Medication management and adherence in older adults

Some 45 percent of older adults struggle with two or more chronic conditions and the health ramifications of those with multiple conditions are vast. People coping with several chronic illnesses have more difficulty with activities of daily living and may struggle to complete simple physical activities.

Many are taking multiple medications, often prescribed by multiple providers, who may or may not communicate with each other. Medication management and adherence may be a key component to allowing older adults to age in place.

This tip sheet provides more background on the impact of medication management, as well as story ideas and the resources to help you do more informed reporting on the topic.
