ADeN 2021 Annual Meeting Virtual Poster Gallery

The posters presented here were submitted via a call for abstracts for rapid fire presentations. We were overwhelmed with fantastic submissions but unfortunately did not have enough time to offer them all oral presentations.

The posters presented here have not been peer-reviewed, with the rights and responsibilities remaining with the authors (not ADeN).

Clara H. Heinrich “Barriers and enablers to deprescribing in long-term care facilities: A ‘best-fit’ framework synthesis of the qualitative evidence”

Minesh Patel “An assessment of confidence in deprescribing amongst Junior Doctors”

Marea O’Donnell “Deprescribing – Bridging Value to Aged Care”


Abstract submission for rapid fire presentations

We are pleased to announce submissions are now open for the ADeN 2021 Virtual Meeting rapid fire presentations. We particularly encourage clinicians, PhD candidates and early career researchers to submit abstracts. This year’s meeting will be hosted as two sessions – morning and evening – with rapid fire presentations to take place in the morning session (final program is subject to changes). As this is a shorter meeting, presenters will not have time for questions, however, your contact details can be circulated to conference delegates if you wish.   

If we receive more submissions than available time, students and ECRs will be given preference, as will submissions that are clear and relevant to deprescribing in Australia.





  • Presentations will be 3-5 minutes (no Q&A to follow).
  • Submission is due COB 29th October 2021.
  • Acceptance of abstracts will be judged by members of the ADeN virtual meeting committee
  • Presenters notified of the outcome by e-mail by COB 1st November 2021.


To be considered for a rapid fire presentation, please complete this template and submit this form as a word document to A.Page@alfred.org.au by COB 29th October 2021. If you have any questions, please email Amy Page.
