Challenges of reducing Dependence Forming Medication

25 Sep 2021
Medicines Optimisation Workshops
In this practical workshop we’ll cover: • What are Dependence Forming Medications (DFMs) and how much do we use? • Why should we be concerned about their use? • Are DFMs of benefit to patients and what are the risks associated with their use? • Which patients are most at risk from DFMs? • How can we reduce DFM use in individual patients? • What resources are available to support deprescribing DFMs? • Where can I find further information on DFMs? We’ll look at a real life case study on deprescribing to support your understanding. There will be a quiz to test your knowledge and a special prize for winners! So do come along to this workshop and find out about the challenges of reducing Dependence Forming Medication.
