In this cluster randomized clinical trial, Romskaug and colleagues investigated the effect of clinical geriatric assessments and collaborative medication reviews by geriatricians and family physicians on health-related quality of life and other patient-relevant outcomes in home-dwelling older patients receiving polypharmacy. The study intervention consisted of clinical geriatric assessment of the patients combined with a thorough review of their medications, a meeting between the geriatrician and the family physician, and clinical follow-up. Results showed that health-related quality of life at follow-up at 16 weeks was statistically significantly better in patients who received the intervention compared with those who received usual care.
