Globally, healthcare systems are challenged with providing appropriate care to patients with complex care needs, multiple chronic conditions, and multiple medications.

This presentation will provide an overview of the current evidence related to the benefits and harms of prescribing and deprescribing medications in frail patients and how to capture patient preferences to ensure optimal care.
