Guidelines for Deprescribing Paths developed in Italy in a participatory process
The Italian network of IIPDW is pleased to share a new Guideline for Deprescribing, developed in response to an increasing dominance of pharmacological treatments in Italian mental health departments. The Guideline is founded on the belief that mental health professionals should be informed about deprescribing options, and aims to open a phase of reassessment of treatment practices in Italy.
The Italian network of IIPDW is comprised of about 160 people who play an active role in the field of mental health in Italy, including mental health professionals, survivors, family members, representatives of local and national organisations and researchers. It was started in February 2020 in Milan. The network created this Guideline as a result of dialogue between various actors in the mental health field.
