Canadian Deprescribing Network

Melissa Anderson represented CPA at the 2018 National Stakeholder Summit on Medication Safety for Older Men and Women.  This event brought stakeholders from various government, healthcare, and community organizations to promote safer prescribing for seniors. The Coalition for Safe and Effective Pain Management (CSEPM), of which CPA is a founding member, presented their report on “Reducing the Role of Opioids in Pain Management” to the summit attendees with good response.
