As part of his post-graduate work with the Bruyère Research Institute, Dr. Wade Thompson developed a consult patient decision aid based on the proton pump inhibitor deprescribing guideline. Developed by the Bruyère Deprescribing Guidelines led team of health care and research experts, the evidence-based guidelines are products of quality research and real-world application.
