abstract

  • CE medication use among dementia patients with a family caregiver is relatively common, though there is substantial geographic variability. Our findings are mixed with respect to appropriate use of CE medications, suggesting areas for physician education. Our data indicate the importance of the caregiver in CE medication use and suggest that there may be disparities in access to healthcare among people with cognitive impairment.
