This study uses drug claims data from the National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System (NPDUIS) Database to examine the use of antipsychotics among seniors living in long-term care (LTC) facilities, and the concurrent use of antipsychotics with other psychotropic drugs, which further increases risk of side effects. LTC resident assessment data from the Continuing Care Reporting System (CCRS) provides more detailed information about the characteristics of residents treated with antipsychotics, including diagnoses, behaviours and other functional measures.
