Patients with dementia are often treated with several different medications and therefore prudent prescribing is necessary for optimal medication selection. Medication-related problems including polypharmacy, drug-drug interactions and inappropriate medications are very frequent in this population and therefore I will attend this conference to present to the participants possible pharmacological hints in real clinical practice to avoid drug-related problems. I expect diverse researchers and healthcare professionals from Slovenia and abroad to share common ideas and strategies how to cope with problems related to dementia.
