Abstract

For patients with polypharmacy or potentially inappropriate medication (PIM) use identified on geriatric assessment, a medication review is recommended. The medication review aims to ensure that the potential benefits of medication outweigh any potential harms and ensures the patient is receiving medication to effectively treat their medical conditions while minimizing risk of toxicity. The medication review encompasses: (1) collecting information to identify medication indications, efficacy and side effects, (2) evaluating adherence, (3) identifying PIMs, (4) identifying drug interactions, and (5) deprescribing. This paper provides the “how-to” guide to conduct a high-quality medication review by the cancer care multidisciplinary team.
