Staying WISE & WELL: Deprescribing to Optimize
This week we have a different type of “blog”. A blog of my speaking to older adults and caregivers about polypharmacy and deprescribing. I would like to give a special thanks to the Brewster, MA Council on Aging located on beautiful Cape Cod for hosting and recording a two-part series on deprescribing. This is available on Cape Cod TV and also here for your viewing if you are not on the Cape. Thank you to Andrea for inviting me to participate in this program and to Lisa for coordinating the recording.
