COVID-19 response in post-acute and long-term care: Task force develops new guide to optimize medications.

A task force convened by the Peter Lamy Center on Drug Therapy and Aging at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy with assistance from the US Deprescribing Research Network has released a new implementation guide to optimize medications. Its goal is to improve resident-centered health and well-being by reducing use of unnecessary medications, simplifying medication management, and reducing opportunities for transmission of COVID-19 between residents and staff. By streamlining medication administration, these changes may also increase the time that staff have available for other direct care activities. See the full guide.
