Medications: Why Less is More
Dr. Debbie Kelly
Director, Medication Therapy Services Clinic
School of Pharmacy, Memorial University of Newfoundland

Modern medicine has helped us better manage disease and has increased longevity. However, as we get older, we tend to “accumulate” medications, many of which may be taken longer than they were intended or beyond which there is evidence of benefit. This presentation will explain why when it comes to long-term medication use, often less is more! Learn how to become informed about your medications and the questions to ask to ensure your medications are working the best way they can for you.

The School of Pharmacy’s Medication Therapy Services Clinic (MTS Clinic) offers in-depth medication assessments for the public at no charge. Our goal is to work with you and your physician to ensure you get the most benefit from your medications, which includes simplifying complex medication regimens and ensuring you are receiving safe, effective and affordable medications.

Please stay tuned for further details.
