Happy October to our friends across the province!
In Calgary, we will offer two events in November around medication safety in seniors.
On November 1st, we will celebrate Patient Safety Week, offering a joint event with Alberta Association on Gerontology and the Kerby Centre.
We invite seniors, nurses and all other interdisciplinary team members to join us for a discussion on how to start conversations about medications. We will hear from Mollie Cole about the work from the Canadian Deprescribing Network, and share our perspectives. See the link to our poster, here: Deprescribing event Nov 1 2018
Note, this is an early afternoon event, so we are planning a followup presentation later this month, to be shared online (details will be available next week!)
Don't forget that the Canadian Deprescribing Network has an excellent website, with information for the general public, as well as care providers, at www.deprescribingnetwork.ca
