Yael’s research focuses on (in)appropriate medication, with special attention to polypharmacy in multimorbid patients. The topic is explored both observationally and experimentally in two different health care settings, a) using electronic medical records of general practices (www.fireproject.ch) and b) in a hospital-based cluster RCT (NFP74 project 19, www.nfp74.ch/en). The observational part is investigating determinants of multimorbid patients with polypharmacy and inappropriate medication, while the clinical trial is investigating the effects of an optimized discharge management on clinical outcomes. It is accompanied by a process evaluation to improve the long-term implementation of the intervention in Swiss hospitals.
