Evaluation of a Deprescribing Guideline Mobile Application

The four evidence-based deprescribing guidelines and algorithms produced through the leadership of the Bruyère Research Institute and the Ontario Pharmacy Evidence Network, and the guideline developed through an NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Fellowship have been built as a series of mobile applications on a “Deprescribing Channel” with the McGill-based IAM Medical Guidelines. This study uses the Information Assessment Method for health care provider users to evaluate the usefulness of the five deprescribing guideline topics.
