Project Title: Deprescribing Initiatives using Community Engagement and Education (DICEE)
This is a community-based project which aims to support and facilitate conversations between older adults, their caregivers, and their healthcare providers about better management of their medications including when to continue or stop medications. Centred around a series of interactive and educational events, this programming will allow older adults to more confidently navigate decisions about their medications, and improve their quality of life by living with more independence for longer.
