About this event
This event will explore the topic of deprescribing and medicines optimisation for older people living in care homes. It will be chaired by Dr Krystal Warmoth, Senior Research Fellow, University of Hertfordshire. The event will include a presentation about the findings from the Understanding Stakeholders’ Perspectives on Implementing Deprescribing in Care Homes (STOPPING) study.

Following this presentation, there will be a discussion about lessons from the STOPPING study and crucial challenges regarding deprescribing and medicine optimisation in care homes (such as, what needs to be in place for this to become embedded practice).
