Description

Neurological disorders represent one of the most prominent causes of morbidity and mortality that adversely affect the lifestyle of patients and a major percentage of these diseases result in disability. More conservative prescribing has the potential to reduce adverse drug events and patient harm and cost; however, no method exists defining the extent to which individual clinicians prescribe conservatively. One potential domain is prescribing a more limited number of drugs. Personal formularies—defined as the number and mix of unique, newly initiated drugs prescribed by a physician—may enable comparisons among clinicians, practices, and institutions.
