1. To explore current processes of in-hospital medicine review and associated communication with the patient’s general practitioner (GP) and consumers.
2. To determine how best to design computerised decision support and consumer information to facilitate medicine review and deprescribing.
Researchers, clinicians, consumers, local health districts (LHDs), primary health networks and NSW Health pillars were involved in the design and development of several decision support tools. The study was conducted in six hospitals across two LHDs (Sydney and Northern Sydney), and with GPs and consumers. Semi-structured interviews and focus groups were conducted with hospital clinicians (doctors, pharmacists and nurses), GPs and consumers to explore current views of medicine review processes, polypharmacy, deprescribing and future decision support. Observations of hospital clinicians were conducted and clinician workflow was incorporated into the design.
