Associate Professor Magnolia Cardona is a health services researcher and an advocate for the reduction of over-treatment of older patients near the end of life.  

She holds a medical degree, a Master's in Public Health, and a PhD in translational research in Australian general practice. Her work over the past few years at UNSW and Bond University has focused on the identification and reduction of inappropriate hospitalisations, unnecessary transfers from nursing homes, non-beneficial ICU interventions, and the enhancement of advance care planning and shared decision-making.

In this seminar on “Deprescribing older patients and identification of over-treatments near the end of life; rationale, feasibility and methods” she will share some of the practicalities of research in this field.
