The Post-Acute and Long-Term Care (PA-LTC) is arguably the most at need population, but one of the most challenging implementation setting for deprescribing. In early 2020, the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Society (formerly AMDA) sponsored the Drive to Deprescribe (D2D) initiative and was developed to address the unique deprescribing-related needs of PA-LTC residents and providers alike. This session is designed to:
  1. Describe the deprescribing conundrum in the PA-LTC setting;
  2. Present the D2D initiative; and
  3. Discuss interim aggregate data and lessons learned from the D2D initiative.
