Details and patient eligibility

About

Older people residing in nursing homes (NH) are frequently polymedicated and often prescribed potentially inappropriate medications. Deprescribing has been proposed as a way to reduce the number of drugs they receive and their exposure to harmful treatments. The objectives of this study are 1) To evaluate the effect of a deprescribing-specific interdisciplinary quality circle module on the use of potentially inappropriate medication in nursing-home residents. 2) To determine the effective strategies to reach and implement deprescribing consensus resulting of said quality circle module.
