Talking about deprescribing can be challenging for both patients and their prescribers. Our team worked with two communities in the Ottawa area to determine the best steps for developing a community engagement intervention to help with deprescribing initiatives. This work supported the proposal for the “Deprescribing Initiatives using Community Engagement” study.
