Abstract
Although research on medications for seniors is vital, there continues to be a dearth of information for this growing population. In addition, there are many barriers to conducting studies in the elderly. Pharmacists can play a key role in conducting and participating in these studies. By establishing contacts with experienced researchers, understanding how to work with an institutional review board, and connecting with research networks and other organizations, pharmacists can help conduct studies that produce valuable results and improve patient care and safety.
