Fewer Bad Prescriptions Better for Patients and Healthcare System

January 29, 2015 — 
Manitoba doctors are providing safer, more appropriate care to patients with mental-health conditions, thanks to an experimental program directed at physicians’ prescribing behaviours. Called IMPRXOVE for “Improving Medication Prescribing and Outcomes Via Medical Education,” the program provides educational feedback by mail to doctors when one of their prescriptions might be inappropriate. The program included over 1,100 family doctors, psychiatrists, and pediatricians over two years. It is the first of its kind in a public healthcare setting like Canada’s.
