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. Barbara Farrell will highlight common elements of the deprescribing process and demonstrate approaches to engaging patients through shared decision-making.

After the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe common steps for deprescribing
  • Use shared decision-making approaches for deprescribing discussions with patients

Dr. Barbara Farrell is passionate about deprescribing – especially for the frail elderly. As a pharmacist working in the Bruyère Geriatric Day Hospital, she sees many older people often taking more than 20 medications a day. Working closely with physicians, an interprofessional team and the patients and their families, she is able to help reduce or stop medications safely. More frequently than not, this helps patients feel better, be less confused, fatigued and dizzy. These experiences prompted Dr. Farrell to pursue research in the field of deprescribing and models that improve medication-related care for older people.

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.
