We are pleased to announce the in-person annual meeting of the US Deprescribing Research Network, which will be held in conjunction with the Society of General Internal Medicine annual meeting in Boston, MA on May 15, 2024. The USDeN annual meeting is open to all people who are conducting or care about research on deprescribing medications and addressing medication overuse among older adults.
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 adults
The meeting speakers and agenda are not yet finalized, but please see the bottom of this page for examples of agendas from the last several years of meetings. The meeting will include a poster session. Encore submissions from research submitted for presentation at SGIM, the American Geriatrics Society, and other meetings are welcome. We will update this page with additional information as it becomes available, including how to submit poster abstracts.
Join 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.
