From Veterans Affairs:
This effort VA has done to improve prescribing to older Veterans and minimize use of these medications looks like it has worked,” Maust said. “They’re not just driving people out into the community. Overall, the goal was to reduce prescribing to Veterans and that has succeeded. But it is also true that a lot of Veterans are receiving benzodiazepines prescriptions through community sources. As VA continues to promote high-quality prescribing, it will be important to think about how to engage community providers in that effort.
