Drive to Deprescribe
To our Signature Family & Community,
In our continued efforts to revolutionize healthcare and help our residents live life with purpose, Signature HealthCARE is excited to announce a new initiative called, Drive to Deprescribe or D2D!
This new program is meant to help improve the overall health and wellbeing of our residents, by reducing the potential for medication overload and polypharmacy, or the simultaneous use of multiple medications by a single resident or patient. We are excited to work with the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (AMDA), and thousands of other long-term care communities nationwide, in a yearlong program that will take steps to optimize prescription use by safely reducing unnecessary medications.
It is our intention to communicate, educate, and heighten awareness to this important initiative and its purpose. For more on the Drive to Deprescribe initiative, please watch this informative video from Signature HealthCARE’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Arif Nazir.
