Evaluation of a Deprescribing Guideline Mobile Application

The four evidence-based deprescribing guidelines and algorithms produced through the leadership of Deprescribing.org 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 used the Information Assessment Method for healthcare provider users to evaluate the usefulness of the five deprescribing guideline topics.

If you are having issues accessing the Deprescribing channel through the IAM Medical Guidelines app (the iOS version), you will have to uninstall and reinstall the IAM Medical Guidelines app as well as the Deprescribing channel due to recent updates to the terms and conditions. If you are still having issues, please contact our team at deprescribing@deprescribing.org
