The AMBER study in collaboration with project leader Susanne Erzkamp aims to develop an algorithm based tool for conducting medication reviews in nursing homes. It is based on complex methods, involving a systematic review, practitioner questionaires, a Delphi survey and various clinical testings. Final results have been published at drug safety.

Funded by Apothekerstiftung Westfalen-Lippe.

In a follow-up project we are now trying to evaluate the AMBER algorithm in a effectiveness study and are trying to build a tool based on AMBER, which will make the study results accessible and useful for all pharmacists.
