Event description

Description

Deprescribing is the planned and supervised process of dose reduction or stopping of medication that may be causing harm or no longer be providing benefit. The goal is to reduce medication burden and harm while maintaining or improving quality of life.

In this webinar, Dr. Jadon Webb will discuss how major depression can be difficult to treat, and how clinicians can sometimes feel constrained in choices of how to treat it (i.e. medications vs talk therapy). Dr. Webb will also explore other modalities with strong supporting evidence, and suggest how these can be integrated into a deprescribing decision tree.

After the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • identify the most evidence-based non-pharmacological supports for depression
  • identify ways to integrate non-pharmacological supports into clinical decision trees for treating depression

Jadon Webb is currently the Medical Director for the Colorado Office of Children, Youth, and Families. Board Certified in both Adult and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, he maintains a part-time private practice, and is also an Assistant Clinical Professor at the Yale University Child Study Center. Dr. Webb obtained an M.D. and Ph.D. in Neuroscience, and has published peer-reviewed neuroscience and psychiatric research that has been presented at national conferences, and featured on TV, radio, and major print publications.

Dr. Webb has been tackling the issue of psychotropic medication polypharmacy, and identifying ways to reduce excessive reliance on medications.

The Ottawa-based BRI Deprescribing Guidelines Research Team will be hosting a series of webinars throughout the summer. Follow @deprescribing on Twitter and deprescribing,org on Facebook to stay up-to-date on the upcoming webinars.
