Abstract:

Mark H. Beers, MD, revolutionized the way medications are prescribed for the elderly. The list that bears his name, the “Beers criteria,” became the watchword for practitioners, particularly consultant pharmacists, who oversee drug therapy for the elderly in nursing facilities and in outpatient settings. An honorary lifetime member of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, his cross-disciplinary approach was crucial to the success of his efforts.
