Deprescribing Information Pamphlets

Deprescribing is easier when the public and health care providers have clear, plain-language information to help inform and educate about the reasons and process for deprescribing.

Deprescribing Guidelines Pamphlets

Deprescribing Pamphlets align with each of the Bruyère evidence-based deprescribing guidelines and algorithms to provide lay-level information to help patients and caregivers have conversations with their prescribers about safe deprescribing.

Deprescribing Guidelines Infographics

Deprescribing Infographics align with each of the Bruyère evidence-based deprescribing guidelines, algorithms and patient pamphlets. They can be used as posters or handouts to encourage patients to talk to their health care providers about potential for deprescribing.
