Wednesday, November 29, 2017

On November 16th, 2017, the CLSA Data Collection Site at the Universite de Sherbrooke hosted a public event about managing medications as we age for CLSA participants and guests. Geriatrician Geneviève Ricard and pharmacist Marie-Claude Fortin shared information the physiological changes associated with aging that may leave seniors at higher risk for potential side effects from certain drugs, and introduced the concept of ‘deprescription’ as a medication management solution for some individuals as they age.

The event was live streamed on the CLSA Facebook and YouTube channels and is available for viewing below. Access the presentation slides here
