New Brunswick Appropriate Use of Antipsychotics Collaborative



“Dementia is a debilitating condition that affects the quality of life of many Canadians and their families. This program will help improve the appropriate use of medication to treat seniors and their health.”

CFHI’s New Brunswick Appropriate Use of Antipsychotics (NB-AUA) collaborative is a fully bilingual program that brings together inter-professional teams from nursing homes across the province to improve appropriate prescribing, enhance the resident and family experience, and build capacity to lead healthcare improvement.
