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, and patients, caregivers, health system stakeholders, and policymakers who have a strong interest in advancing scholarship on deprescribing and translating research findings into everyday practice.  The meeting is designed to be interactive so all attendees should be prepared to actively participate.
