Dr Tobias Dreischulte, University of Dundee
Research Fellow (Pharmacy)
A clinical pharmacist by training, I am a postdoctoral researcher within the Quality, Safety and Informatics research group (Population Health Sciences Division) at the University of Dundee.
Since I started my research career I have had an interest in the quality and safety of prescribing and I am currently working on a programme to develop and evaluate a complex prescribing safety improvement intervention in primary care (DQIP). The cluster trial evaluating the intervention will report in late 2014.
More recently, I have developed an interest in pharmacoepidemiolgy and have recently completed a nested case control study quantifying the renal risks of commonly prescribed drugs. I will shortly start working on a series of interrupted time series studies to investigate the impact of regulatory warnings on primary care prescribing.
