This article explores the factors that contribute to polypharmacy and discusses its negative physiological, psychological, and economic effects. It also describes strategies for reducing polypharmacy, including both "explicit" approaches, which are grounded in the findings of literature reviews and expert opinion, and "implicit" approaches, which are based on the provider's interpretation of clinical data and the patient's medication regimen.

Abstract The current qualitative study explored perceptions and experiences of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) among Korean male older adults. Six older adults participated in a narrative group interview. Responses were analyzed to describe perceptions and experiences of COPD. Social stigma, blaming others and the environment, stress to bear alone, and adaptation and management emerged as relevant themes for adaptation to COPD. In relation to obstacles to healthy behaviors after adapting to COPD, emergent themes were adapting to symptoms, external environmental factors, alternative treatments, and ins...
