This meeting will comprise a wide-ranging series of sessions and activities that are focused on:
- Enhancing skills, providing multidisciplinary perspectives, and offering practical guidance on and opportunities for deprescribing research
- Communicating how the network can help you and your research interests
- Building collaborations and community among people interested in deprescribing research and how it can be used to improve care for older adultJoin us as we build a community of researchers and stakeholders that will generate science, address logistical and safety challenges, and develop infrastructure to promote the conduct and dissemination of research on deprescribing
The annual network meeting is open to all who are interested in research on deprescribing for older adults, including early-stage investigators, more experienced investigators, patients, caregivers, health system stakeholders, and policymakers who have a strong interest in advancing scholarship on deprescribing and translating research findings into everyday practice.
