Finding the Balance Between Medication Benefits and Burdens: Implementing Appropriate and Safe Prescribing
April 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT
This Medication Safety Learning and Action Network (LAN) Event will feature speakers on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Stopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths & Injuries (STEADI) initiative, a QIN-QIO’s de-escalation algorithm for discontinuing medication when burdens outweigh the benefits, and a patient advocate who will share his story on safe medication use. Topics will include approaches to safe prescribing and medication discontinuation practices and a patient perspective on the importance of safe and effective medication management. This event will address various approaches and resources available to you or your patients. Join us in the conversation and invite your patients and their families for an informative session!
