Review of the Geriatric Pharmacotherapy Blog

The Geriatric Pharmacotherapy Blog was created in April of this year and at the time of writing there are four posts. The blog is written by Thomas R Clark, Director of Clinical Affairs at the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists Foundation. The blog was created on a Mac as indicated at the bottom of the page. The home page is simply structured with abstracts of the four posts located in the central panel. The reader must click at the bottom of each abstract to read the full article and is able to make comments on the posts. Clark summarises two studies on adverse drug events in this post. Although the blog has only a few posts, the reader can easily get to further useful material by following the links. For instance if you follow the links in this post, there are various useful resources including the ASCP foundation website which features amongst other things an electronic newsletter. In conclusions this is a fairly recent blog with only a few posts but which links to other useful resources and is relevant to those with an interest in pharmacotherapy in older adults.
