DRUG CLASSES AND SCHEDULES

This video covers the basis for placing drugs into therapeutic and pharmacological classes and the prototype approach to drug classification. It describes drug's mechanism of action, distinguishes between a drug's chemical name, generic name, and trade name, and explains why generic drug names are preferred to other trade name drugs. Students learn why drugs are sometimes placed on a restrictive list and the controversy surrounding this issue and "controlled substance" category. The video lecture explores the U.S. Controlled Substance Act of 1970 and the role of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency in controlling drug abuse and misuse and the drug schedules and examples of drugs at each level together with explanations on how drugs are scheduled according to Parts III and IV of the Canadian Food and Drugs Act and the Narcotic Control Act.

POLYPHARMACY IN THE AGED

By Cynthia Cheng, MD, PhD

Polypharmacy in the aged is a major patient safety issue in the United States today. Medication errors due to polypharmacy can involve severe and even life-threatening side effects or drug interactions. This video reviews the causes of polypharmacy in the elderly and identifies patients who are at risk for medication errors due to polypharmacy. It also discusses steps that primary care physicians can take to reduce the risk for medication errors in elderly patients who are taking multiple drugs to treat coexisting conditions. The use of a handheld electronic device such as a personal digital assistant (PDA) to assess potential medication errors is emphasized, as is the vital role of the pharmacist in helping to identify medications that are more likely to cause severe adverse effects or drug interactions in the elderly. Two hypothetical patient cases based on real-life situations are presented to illustrate how to assess and manage elderly patients who are at risk for polypharmacy-related adverse effects. Tips for educating elderly patients and their caregivers to avoid complications from prescription drugs and from over-the-counter medications and herbal agents also are provided.
