CHARMER is a five year (2020-2025) England-wide research project to develop and test a hospital deprescribing behaviour change intervention


Half of older people in hospital are prescribed a medicine with a safety risk, but these medicines are rarely stopped.

The CHARMER intervention aims to equip geriatricians and pharmacists in hospital to work with older people and family members to stop inappropriate or unnecessary medicines before they cause harm (proactive deprescribing).
