Dr. Christiane Muth, MD, MPH

Biography: Christiane Muth is a general internist and a primary care researcher at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, Main. She holds an MPH degree from Hanover Medical School. She is the key author of an evidence ‐based guideline on chronic heart failure, funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research(BMBF), and authorized by the German Society of General Practice and Family Medicine (DEGAM). The guideline makes use of a method she developed, called the systematic guideline review. This guideline was selected as the source guideline for the development of a National Guideline (NVL) and for the disease management program (DMP) on chronic heart failure for nationwide implementation. Currently, she is conducting the cluster‐RCT ‘PRIMUM’ (PRIoritization and optimization of MUltimedication in Multimorbidity) funded bythe BMBF to determine whether complex interventions will improve the appropriateness of prescriptions in elderly multimorbid patients.  

Research interests: Her research interests focus on clinical decision support for chronic conditions, in particular in combination with co‐ and multimorbidity, on multi‐morbid patients receiving poly‐pharmacotherapy, as well as on methodology with a focus on guideline development.
