Taper MD today launched PIMsPlus.org, a new free searchable resource for safer medication use which is focused on Potentially Inappropriate Medications (PIMs): medications that should be used with caution in older adults because research and clinical experience with these medications have shown that the risk of adverse effects can outweigh the benefits.
The aim of PIMsPlus.org is to become the best and most easily accessible source for PIM information for patients and healthcare providers.
This project is a partnership between
- The Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University,
- The American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP).
The launch coincides with the ASCP Annual Conference, which started yesterday and runs through the weekend.
