Deprescribing guidelines – Tools for implementation

Deprescribing can be challenging. The “Deprescribing Guidelines for the Elderly” project developed guidelines and decision-support tools in the form of algorithms. Our knowledge translation tools will include whiteboard videos to help clinicians use these algorithms in a variety of situations and powerpoint presentations that outline the processes used for developing the guidelines and making the deprescribing recommendations. Additional tools such as infographics and translations are also supported through this grant.
