Publisher :American Geriatrics Society
Year of publication : 2015



These recommendations published by The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) incorporate data obtained from a literature review of the most recent studies available at the time. As with all clinical reference resources, they reflect the best understanding of the science of medicine at the time of publication, but they should be used with the clear understanding that continued research may result in new knowledge and recommendations. These Recommendations are intended for general information only, are not medical advice, and do not replace professional medical care and physician advice, which always should be sought for any specific condition.


The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) released its second updated and expanded Beers Criteria® - lists of potentially inappropriate medications for older adults - and one of the most frequently cited reference tools in the field of geriatrics. The Society also unveiled a suite of new companion resources - including a list of alternative therapies for potentially inappropriate medications and more detailed guidance on best practices for implementing AGS recommendations - all published FREE on GeriatricsCareOnline.
