Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis

Abstract

Older patients are at increased risk of experiencing adverse drug reactions (ADR), which are often attributed to a range of factors associated with polypharmacy and some of the physiological changes occurring with age, which can alter both pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of a drug. The overall aim of this thesis was to develop and validate a system which could be used to identify and prevent the potential occurrence of ADR during in-patient stay.
