Dose Reduction Template

Date: October 19, 2018
Filed under: Clear, Improve Clinical Care, Clear W3 Resource, Tools


The Dose Reduction Template has been developed to facilitate communication with your physician about reducing antipsychotic use for a specific individual with BPSD.

This template is:

  • Part of a conversation – think of this template as part of your developing relationship with your physicians. This is to support your relationships and communication with physicians.
  • A prototype – we would love to keep working on this template with you! If you have changes you would like us to make to the letter, please do!
  • Aimed at general practitioners – if you have a geriatric psychiatrist or equivalent, you may want to customize this process to meet their needs.

Watch our 4 minute clip where we walk you through completing the template. We’ve provided it in Word format, so please feel free to personalize the template for your use. To provide feedback on the form, contact clearbc@staging.bcpsqc.ca.
