Supply curvesPharmacotherapy

The aim of this study is to avoid adverse drug reactions by taking appropriate measures in cross-sectoral treatment. This includes a higher transparency of patient-related care during inpatient admission as well as the special care of polypharmacy risk patients in surgery by hospital pharmacists. In addition, a structured medication review upon discharge from inpatient treatment and a transition management for risk patients is expected to reduce adverse drug reactions and re-hospitalisation.

These interventions will be evaluated in terms of their effectiveness and cost-effectiveness with the participation of the PMV research group.
