Deprescribing guidelines – Tools for implementation

Deprescribing can be challenging. The Bruyère and Ontario Pharmacy Evidence Network’s “Deprescribing Guidelines for the Elderly” project developed guidelines and decision-support tools in the form of algorithms. New knowledge translation tools supported by this grant include whiteboard videos to help clinicians use these algorithms in a variety of situations, infographics for the public, and French translations.
