Grant to fund deprescribing study

The Alliance for Home Health Quality and Innovation (AHHQI) recently announced the recipient of its 2021 research grant.

Jinjiao Wang, PhD, RN and her team at the University of Rochester School of Nursing are working to develop a deprescribing intervention for older home health patients with multimorbidity and polypharmacy which aligns with existing home health practices, according to a news release.

The multi-aim project seeks to create the first home-based, telehealth-facilitated deprescribing intervention using home health care nurses, facilitating collaboration with other providers such as clinical pharmacists and providers in acute and primary care practices.

AHHQI is seeking funding requests for its 2022 cycle.
