Visioning Day: Polypharmacy Risk Reduction

Apr 12, 2018 - 12:00am

Exploring Polypharmacy Risk Reduction in the Community

The Shared Care Polypharmacy Risk Reduction (PPhRR) initiative aims to reduce risks of polypharmacy in the elderly by providing physicians with tools and strategies to reduce medications for improved safety and quality of life. The PPhRR initiative is being applied to the 3 care environments: residential care (finished March 2018), acute care through prototyping (finishing June 2018) and the community.

Polypharmacy Visioning Day

The purpose of the community visioning day was to better understand, through the perspectives of a range of stakeholders, a way forward for developing and testing a PPhRR approach to seniors living in the community. The community phase will run from April 2018-March 2019.
