Who are we?

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 was formed in 2014 following a workshop in Brisbane that brought together clinicians and researchers with an active interest in deprescribing. Since then ADeN has held annual meetings in Sydney (2015), Melbourne (2016), Brisbane (2017) and Adelaide (2018), with the 2019 meeting scheduled for Sydney.

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