Abstract:

Polypharmacy is a growing community problem, and is evident in correctional healthcare.  Using Lewin’s Change Theory, action research, and an interprofessional team approach in this project, potentially problematic polypharmacy was identified. One hundred eighty profiles met criteria for inclusion. Eighty-six profiles were reviewed, 44 (51%) were age 50 to 78, and 42 (49%) age 26-49.
