Discontinuation of benzodiazepines - Big Bird Trail


Belgium is forerunner when it comes to the global consumption of z-drugs and benzodiazepines. To aid general practitioners in the nearby future in following the use of z-drugs and benzodiazepines, a study is being set up to test the effectivity of a blended care program in the discontinuation of benzodiazepines. 

The department 'Huisartsgeneeskunde en Chronische Zorg' (HUIS) of the VUB is eager to include general practitioners willing to contribute to the Big Bird study on benzodiazepines discontinuation. For more information, please contact Roel Van Overmeire (roel.van.overmeire@vub.be) or go to the website of the project: https://www.bigbirdtrial.com/
