GeriMedRisk is an interdisciplinary telemedicine consultation and education service for doctors, nurse practitioners and pharmacists in Ontario. Using telephone and eConsult, clinicians receive a coordinated response to questions regarding optimizing medications, mental health and comorbidities in older adult patients from a team of geriatric specialists and pharmacists. GeriMedRisk is a not-for-profit service for clinicians.
Drug Information Summaries
Based on each unique consultation, GeriMedRisk develops drug information summaries specific to older adults. These educational resources are designed to increase the knowledge and ability of clinicians to care for and safely prescribe to their older adult patients.
Development of the Drug Information Summaries is supported by the Ontario Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA).
GeriMedRisk offers monthly webcast Royal College accredited educational rounds on topics in geriatric clinical pharmacology and safe prescribing for older adults. These rounds are targeted to prescribers and occur on the first Tuesday of every month from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (EST).

In fall 2019, GeriMedRisk will offer a series of rounds targeted to family medicine clinicians, supported in part by the Ontario CLRI at the RIA.
