          Abstract

          There are limited tools to assess potential prescribing omissions (PPOs) or underprescribing in the elderly. The ACOVE project defines comprehensive quality care indicators for older people and some of these indicators focused on appropriate use of medicines. The aim of the present study was to assess the inter-rater reliability between observers using the ACOVE 3 prescribing indicated medications indicators and compare it with the inter-rater reliability obtained for the Screening Tool of Older Person's Prescriptions (STOPP)/Screening Tool to Alert Doctors to Right Treatment (START) criteria.
