Deprescribing – An approach to reducing medications that might no longer be helping, or might be causing harm
Join Dr. Barbara Farrell as she discusses Deprescribing – An approach to reducing medications that might no longer be helping, or might be causing harm.
Dr. Barbara Farrell is passionate about polypharmacy management and deprescribing – especially for the frail elderly. As a pharmacist working in the Bruyère Geriatric Day Hospital, she helps older people and their prescribers decide what medications to continue and which ones to reduce. She is a scientist with the Bruyère Research Institute and CT Lamont Primary Health Care Research Centre, Assistant Professor with the Department of Family Medicine, University of Ottawa and Adjunct Assistant Professor with the School of Pharmacy, University of Waterloo. Her research focuses on interprofessional approaches to polypharmacy management, most recently through development and use of evidence-based deprescribing guidelines. She’s proud to be one of the co-founders of the Canadian Deprescribing Network. In 2011, she received the “Pharmacist of the Year” award from the Canadian Pharmacists Association.
