People with dementia who are taking multiple medications including antipsychotics and sedatives are at risk of adverse effects due to several factors including frailty, medication interactions, and effects of cognitive decline. In this session, learn about the process of deprescribing and how it can reduce medication-related risks and maintain overall health for people with dementia. Allison will discuss tools and guidelines that will help you reduce medications, assess outcomes, and support a person who has been through the process of deprescribing.
