DescriptionDeprescribing is the process of withdrawing or replacing medications to improve outcomes and reduce medication-associated risks. Deprescribing, though traditionally the domain of healthcare professionals, is now receiving attention from human factors experts. In turn, the deprescribing community is gaining an appreciation for human-centered design and research. This panel gathers experts in human factors and pharmacy to critically discuss past, current, and future work concerning human-centered design and research in deprescribing. The panel will help formulate the value proposition for human factors in this important area.
