Katharina Tabea Jungo, PhD, is a Research Fellow at the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics and the Center for Healthcare Delivery Sciences (C4HDS) at Brigham and Women's Hospital and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Harvard Medical School. Her research interests include patient-centered approaches to deprescribing, novel digital health interventions for reducing inappropriate medication use in patients with polypharmacy, and disparities in the discontinuation of potentially inappropriate medications. She has expertise in mixed-methods research, survey methods, analysis of administrative health data, and clinical trials. Dr. Jungo is a recipient of a Postdoc.Mobility grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation, which funds her postdoctoral research on optimizing prescribing practices using behaviorally-based digital health interventions. She earned her undergraduate degree in International Relations and her Master of Science in Global Health from the University of Geneva, Switzerland. In 2021, she obtained her PhD in Epidemiology and Public Health from the University of Bern, Switzerland. Her doctoral research focused on the use of potentially inappropriate medications in older adults with multimorbidity and polypharmacy, optimizing medication use in this patient group using an electronic clinical decision support system as well as patients’ and general practitioners’ willingness to have medications deprescribed. More recently, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher and research team leader at the Institute of Primary Health Care (BIHAM) of the University of Bern.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
