About the Australian Deprescribing Network

Who is ADeN and why do we exist?

The Australian Deprescribing Network (ADeN) comprises of clinicians, academic researchers, policy makers, students and consumers working together to develop the evidence-base, clinical guidance and knowledge translation to facilitate deprescribing of medicines that are no longer providing benefit or are causing harm.

ADeN aims to promote research, awareness, practice and policy for the safe and appropriate use of medicines for all Australians.

This website aims to share and exchange information about deprescribing approaches and deprescribing research with the public, health care providers and researchers.                    


What is Deprescribing?

Deprescribing is the planned and supervised process of dose reduction or stopping of medication that might be causing harm, or no longer be of benefit.

Deprescribing is part of good prescribing – backing off when doses are too high, or stopping medications that are no longer needed.
