The extent and nature of medication-related hospital admissions over six-years: 2011-2016

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • BACKGROUND:

    The World Health Organization has recently announced that its

    third global patient safety challenge aims to reduce the global

    burden of medication-related harm[1]. The increasing availability

    of medicines worldwide (by prescription and non-prescription),

    has resulted in an increasing number of medication-related

    adverse events, especially amongst older people[2].

    AIM:

    To contrast the medication-related adverse events for individuals

    with and without dementia.

    METHODS:

    Using non-identifiable data from the Illawarra Health

    Information Platform (IHIP), a retrospective longitudinal analysis

    of medication-related adverse events (2011-2016) was

    undertaken. Local health district data was analysed for trends,

    contributing medicines and medicine-related readmissions.
