Assessing potentially inappropriate prescribing (PIP) and predicting patient outcomes in Ontario's older population: a population-based cohort study applying subsets of the STOPP/START and Beers' criteria in large health administrative databases.

Bjerre LM, Ramsay T, Cahir C, Ryan C, Halil R, Farrell B, Thavorn K, Catley C, Hawken S, Gillespie U, Manuel DG - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: The aim of this study is to describe the occurrence of PIP in Ontario's older population (aged 65 years and older), and to assess the health outcomes and health system costs associated with PIP-more specifically, the association between PIP and the occurrence of ED visits, hospitalisations and death, and their related costs.Ethical approval was obtained from the Ottawa Health Services Network Ethical Review Board and from the Bruyère Research Institute Ethics Review Board.Dissemination will occur via publication, presentation at national and international conferences, and ongoing exchanges with regional, provincial and national stakeholders, including the Ontario Drug Policy Research Network and the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

BMJOPEN2015010146F3: Time-to-event as a function of potentially inappropriate prescribing (PIP): possible patient scenarios, definition of eligible exposure and of outcome observation time window.

Mentions: The main exposure variable will be the occurrence of the first PIP ever during the accrual period (see figure 3). This will be used to quantify the association of a first PIP with an outcome (see ‘Primary outcome’ below).
