Manias E, Bucknall T, Hughes C, et al. BMC geriatrics. 2019;19:95.

Transitions of care represent a vulnerable time for patients. Elderly patients in particular may experience a variety of challenges related to such transitions, including managing changes to their medications. This systematic review suggests that there is significant opportunity for health care providers to improve family engagement in managing medications of elderly patients during care transitions.
