Public Event Planning Guide
As part of the Deprescribing Interventions using Community Engagement (DICE) project, the Bruyère team worked with an advisory group made up of local residents of a small community in rural Ontario to create and pilot a community event designed to encourage older adults, caregivers, and healthcare providers to talk more with each other about medication management and, by doing so, minimizing the risks and maximizing the benefits of medications.
