Beers Criteria Update 2023 - Seven Changes

The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) 2023 updated AGS Beers Criteria® for potentially inappropriate medication (PIM) use in older adults was released during the AGS annual meeting in May 2023.  This is the sixth update to the criteria which are currently designed to identify potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) that are best avoided in older adults in general or in specific circumstances.  The criteria were first intended to be applied to the nursing home population but were expanded to apply to all adults 65 years old and older (except for end-of-life settings).
