Dr. Mike Steinman Published Article in BMC Geriatrics

Dr. Mike Steinman published an article in BMC Geriatrics entitled, "Impact of a nurse-based intervention on medication outcomes in vulnerable older adults." Dr. Steinman's research evaluated the impact of a nurse-based primary care intervention, based on the Guided Care model of care, on patient-centered aspects of medication use. Dr. Steinman's research concluded that this nurse-based, primary care intervention resulted in substantially more changes to patients’ medication regimens than usual care, without increasing the total number of medications used. This enhanced rate of change likely reflects greater attentiveness to the medication-related needs of patients.
