Prescribing inappropriate medication (PIM) is a common public health problem. Mainly due to associated adverse drugs events (ADE), it results in major morbidity and mortality, as well as increased healthcare utilization. For a long time, the systematic review of medications prescribed appeared as a solution for limiting PIM and the ADE associated with such prescriptions. With this aim and since 2008, the list of STOPP-START criteria has appeared as attractive in its design, as well as logical and easy to use. The initial version has just been updated and improved. After having detailed all improvements provided to the 2008 version, we present the result of its adaptation into French language by a group of French-speaking expert from Belgium, Canada, France, and Switzerland.
