Polypharmacy is a common patient safety concern among veterans. In this study, 21 Veterans Health Administration (VA) sites developed their own deprescribing protocols and participated in a virtual deprescribing collaborative. Sites employed decision support tools, such as the VA VIONE tool, and other strategies, such as individualized medication review, to encourage deprescribing and reduce polypharmacy among its patients.
