Inappropriate Use of Antipsychotics in Long-Term Care

A recent report with the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) found potentially inappropriate antipsychotic use in long-term care (LTC) dropped by 26% between 2014-15 & 2019-20. However, use of these powerful drugs increased in several provinces during the COVID-19 pandemic. What’s behind this rise and how might we tackle this complex problem in LTC settings?

These questions and more will be discussed on Choosing Wisely Talks.

  • Sid Feldman, Family Physician, North York Family Health Team
  • Nathan Stall, Geriatrician, Sinai Health
