The Beers criteria are an important instrument to improve medication safety in geriatrics. In 2015, the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) updated the Beers criteria and extended the list regarding important aspects. Our translation into German aims to simplify the application in German health care and to improve medication safety. The list was adapted to the German health care market to ensure its suitability for daily clinical use. The updated Beers lists is extended regarding clinical relevant drug-drug interactions and advice for dose titration in patients with renal insufficiency. Thereby, we hope that the updated Beers criteria will help to optimize geriatric pharmacotherapy.
