Team-Based Care Meeting on Deprescribing: Considerations, Implementation, and Best Practices

  • 21 Mar 2024

In March, CTC-RI and RIGEC hosted our Best Practices in Team-Based Care meeting on “Deprescribing: Considerations, Implementation, and Best Practices”, featuring speaker Christine Eisenhower, Pharm.D., BCPS, Clinical Associate Professor of Pharmacy at the University of Rhode Island. During the session, participants learned about evaluating older adult patients through reviewing case studies to determine deprescribing appropriateness with particular attention to timeframes when deprescribing might be most helpful. Opportunities and challenges for deprescribing among interdisciplinary team members were discussed together with resources that could be used to optimize shared decision-making. The meeting showcased a strong attendance with over 80 people attending. The Best Practices in Team-Based Care meetings will continue to be held every third Tuesday of the month from 8:00-9:00am.
