Shared Care Committee: Polypharmacy Risk Reduction

Taking multiple medications, or polypharmacy, is a risk factor for serious adverse events for our seniors community, especially for frail seniors. With each medication taken, the risk of confusion, falls and other negative impacts rises exponentially.

The Shared Care Polypharmacy Risk Reduction initiative aims to reduce risks of polypharmacy for seniors, by providing physicians with tools and strategies to reduce medications for improved safety and quality of life.
