15 Aug 2022 Prescribing cascades: Are you concerned?
We are finalizing an upcoming Therapeutics Letter on the topic of “Prescribing Cascades”, and wonder whether any readers know how to use office or hospital electronic medical record systems (EMRs) to detect possible prescribing cascades, resolve them, or prevent them from occurring.
If you have knowledge or technical ability about how an EMR could help avoid prescribing cascades, we would love to hear from you. Especially if you have shown it can work in an office or hospital setting using an EMR in common use in Canada.
Think you can help us write an appropriate short paragraph or link to simple instructions that primary care providers or dispensing pharmacists could use? If so, please contact us ASAP:
