As individuals age, they tend to be diagnosed with more conditions that require more prescriptions and more medication use. Admission to hospice provides prescribers with an opportunity to evaluate a patient’s medication regimen and align it with symptom expression and goals of care to minimize the potential for harm from unnecessary medications.
However, few studies have been conducted to measure prescribing in the hospice population and there is no current consensus on a prescribing model for end-of-life care.
In this data-driven ebook, the President of Clinical Consulting at OnePoint Patient Care aims to help prescribers tackle the challenges and weigh the possible benefits of deprescribing through research and more than 30 years of hospice pharmacy experience.
