Benzodiazepine Action

The mission of the Benzodiazepine Action work group is to increasing benzodiazepine safety through education, patient support, and informed prescribing and deprescribing practices. The Benzodiazepine Action Work Group meets every month (in person if possible and by remote conferencing). The current work group roster, most recent meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting schedule can be found on this page. The group joined the Consortium in November 2020, and more details about its purpose, membership, projects, and more will be added to this page.
