About MedSafer: MedSafer is an electronic tool developed by clinician-scientists at McGill University, Montreal to help physicians and pharmacists identify and act upon opportunities for medication deprescribing in older adults. MedSafer applies an electronic set of criteria, derived from the most current literature, including the STOPP criteria, and has been piloted by teams of geriatricians, internists, palliative care doctors and pharmacists from Ontario and Québec to identify potentially inappropriate medications in hospitalized older adults. The MedSafer project involves eleven sites at seven institutions from across Canada. MedSafer brings together clinician researchers with a strong scientific and clinical background in Geriatric Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Geriatric Pharmacotherapy to facilitate safer prescribing to older adults.
