Lack of clinical guidance constitutes a significant barrier to deprescribing. Within Danish clinical guidelines on treatment of dementia, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and osteoporosis, only limited attention was given to deprescribing. For dementia, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis, guidance was primarily focused on when to consider and implement deprescribing, with limited practical guidance on how to deprescribe. No guidance for deprescribing antihypertensives was identified. This highlights a need to consider deprescribing more broadly when developing and updating clinical guidelines, as argued in this review.
