  • Description: The ability of elderly people to self-medicate is a critical function for successful independent living. The current research investigated the predictive value of three aspects of memory potentially related to success or failure in a self-medication program. Results show that a combination of memory measures successfully discriminated between those subjects who advanced in the program and those who did not. The results of the present study provide information that will aid in improving the selection process for admission to self-medication programs.
