Webinar – Deprescribing is more than just stopping medications
October 18, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Description: Deprescribing refers to the reduction or discontinuation of medications that no longer confer more benefits than risks, or are inconsistent with goals of care. Deprescribing is a process that requires healthcare providers and the patient to have shared goals.
This presentation will discuss multiple medication use, also called polypharmacy and the process of deprescribing.
