The LESS Study
Sven Streit et al.
Deprescribing is the process to stop or reduce medication in patients with polypharmacy to reduce inappropriate medication. Implementation to deprescribe in GP practice has been shown not to be trivial, since there are barriers for GPs and patients. In the LESS study, we present cases with oldest-old patients that differ in their level of dependency. We are interested in if and how GPs in Europe and beyond deprescribe and which factors they consider when deprescribing. The LESS Study is a cross-sectional survey study running in >30 countries that builds on previous studies on treating hypertension (ATTENTIVE) and stop statins (STATTENTIVE) in oldest-old.
