Deprescribing: a Preventative Decalogue

Lluís Triquell is a hospital pharmacist, doctor and PDG IESE. As a managing partner of Antares Consulting, he has focused his field of expertise towards the bio-industry and pharmacy, areas where he is particularly active, both in his professional life and on Twitter.

Lluís Triquell’s tweet brings us to a Decalogue published in the online magazine NPS Medicinewise, an Australian organization specializing in searching for evidence in the field of medicine and in diagnostic tests. In this Decalogue, NPS offers a number of tips that should be taken into account when prescribing drugs to the elderly. It is, therefore, to prevent de- prescribing with 10 simple criteria.

Thank you, Lluís, for giving us this opportune link.
