This Deprescribing Tool was developed together by CFHI and the School of Pharmacy - Memorial University of Newfoundland. It is used to assess the appropriateness of long-term care residents’ antipsychotic medication.

This website was developed and is supported by Dr. Barbara Farrell and Dr. Cara Tannenbaum — a pharmacist and physician who work with older people and are concerned about the risks associated with medications in this population — and their research teams at the Bruyère Research Institute (Ottawa) and Université de Montréal.

The website has been designed for people living with dementia and their care partners, healthcare providers and researchers.
