Webinar – Managing Meds and Minimizing Risk: Why, Who and How (Deprescribing)
November 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Dr. Elizabeth Rhynold, Geriatrician, and Dr. Shanna Trenaman, Pharmacist and Assistant Professor, will discuss frailty, functional dependence, factors related to the need for full assessments, what deprescribing is, how it works, patient empowerment, and more.
Their planned focus will be on benzodiazepines, safe sleep promotion and the role of anticholinergic medications in their work. The goal will be to increase participant confidence in supporting people trying to gradually decrease and discontinue medications that increase the risk of falls in collaboration with their prescriber.
