Abstract

Aim: To estimate the prevalence of potentially inappropriate medications (PIMs) use and identify the medications involved, in community‐dwelling adults with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Background: Inappropriate medication use is associated with detrimental clinical outcomes in CKD. However, limited data are available on the level and type of PIMs use in non‐institutionalised CKD patients.
