Use of Antipsychotics Among Seniors Living in Long-Term Care Facilities, 2014 (February 25, 2016)
This study uses drug claims data to examine the use of antipsychotics among seniors living in long-term care (LTC) facilities, and the concurrent use of antipsychotics with other psychotropic drugs, which further increases risk of side effects. LTC resident assessment data provides more detailed information about the characteristics of residents treated with antipsychotics, including diagnoses, behaviours and other functional measures.
