November 16, 2022 12:00pm (ET)
Dr. Elizabeth Rhynold, Geriatrician, and Dr. Shanna Trenaman, Pharmacist, will present what deprescribing is, how it works, frailty, functional dependence, factors related to the need for full assessments, 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.
