WEBINAR DETAILS

This webinar will focus on appropriate medication minimization in end-of-life care. Patients often present for hospice admission with rampant polypharmacy issues that should be addressed in order to promote quality end-of-life care. Unfortunately, the task of medication deprescribing or minimization is much easier said than done. This webinar will provide valuable information to clinicians for application to the medication minimization conversation and explanation of why less is more!
