On February 18, Val Bradley and Dorothy Hiersteiner participated in a webinar titled “Reducing Medication Use in Adults with ID/DD,” organized by the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR). Val and Dorothy presented NCI findings on rates of psychotropic drug use among the NCI Adult Consumer Survey population and discussed initiatives undertaken by states to manage over-medication. Other webinar presenters demonstrated the findings of state-specific studies into psychotropic drug use and discussed the measures their states have taken to reduce over-medication in adults with ID/DD. The webinar brought attention to an important issue, and it was well-attended and well-received.
