Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy
Certified Geriatric Pharmacist
1321 Duke Street, Alexandria
VA 22314


The geriatric pharmacist knows that the focus must be on the total patient, looking at all of the diseases and all of the medicines to evaluate appropriateness of drug therapy. The geriatric pharmacist also knows that the elderly are subject to conditions, such as falls, delirium, and cognitive impairment, that are not usually a concern in younger adults. Drug therapy must be evaluated with respect to the potential for medications to cause or worsen these "geriatric syndromes."
