Test your knowledge with a patient case quiz series on an 85-year-old male referred in 2017 for a second opinion with cardiology for episodic "whiteouts." Part 1 asks the question, "What could be next steps?" Part 2 asks the question, "Can the patient be defined as having polypharmacy and can decreasing medication burden (deprescribing) be considered on an ethical basis?" Part 3 asks the question, "What is the definition of medication deprescribing?" Part 4 asks the question, "What are the components of the deprescribing process?" In addition, weigh in on an accompanying poll about geriatric conditions in older adults with heart failure.
