Polypharmacy is common in elderly population. Literatures suggest that the incidence rate of drug interaction increases when the number of medication increases, which may result in the increase of adverse reaction and health expenditures. We conduct the study to analyze the severity and pattern of underlying drug interaction in outpatient settings .. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
