Our recent report with the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) found potentially inappropriate antipsychotic use in long-term care (LTC) dropped by 26% between 2014-15 & 2019-20. However, use of these powerful drugs increased in several provinces during the COVID-19 pandemic. What’s behind this rise and how might we tackle this complex problem in LTC settings?
We’ll discuss these questions and more on Choosing Wisely Talks taking place on January 25 at 12 p.m. ET.
