The PrescQIPP IMPACT bulletin and tool helps prioritise deprescribing decisions in patients taking several drugs which could be stopped.
This tool identifies clinical and deprescribing priorities with recommendations for appropriately continuing or stopping medicines.
Links to PrescQIPP deprescribing algorithms are included where available and the tool is regularly updated as new algorithms become available.
There is the facility to produce individual patient deprescribing plans through the visual data pack, by filtering for specific BNF chapters and drugs (note: disregard the geographical drop down lists as these do not currently include NI data). Note: when registering as a new member of PrescQIPP, select ‘Department of Health Northern Ireland’ as your organisation to ensure access to all resources.
