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.

Funded by Apothekerstiftung Westfalen-Lippe.
