Join Wave 3 of Clear!

We are currently inviting long-term care homes in British Columbia to join Clear, a voluntary initiative that will support them to reduce the number of residents who are prescribed antipsychotic medications, as Action & Improvement Teams or Supporters.

This is the third wave of Clear (which used to be known as CLeAR: A Call for Less Antipsychotics in Residential Care), and this time we’re inviting care homes that have more residents receiving antipsychotics without a diagnosis of psychosis than the BC average of 25%.

Together with care homes across BC, you’ll learn from advisors and clinical experts with extensive knowledge in improving care for seniors. You will also learn from care homes that have already participated in Clear about how they were able to reduce their antipsychotic use.

Learn more about Clear, or sign up her before December 1.
