Dr. Kröger is a research scientist at the Centre d’excellence sur le vieillissement de Québec (CEVQ) du CIUSSSCN and an adjunct professor at the Faculté de pharmacie de l’Université Laval and at the Department of Family Medicine of McGill University. A pharmacist and (pharmaco-) epidemiologist by training, Dr Kröger uses data from epidemiological cohort studies or from administrative data banks for her research. She also performs systematic, scoping or mixed methods knowledge syntheses. For over 10 years, she has been studying risk factors for dementia (Interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Seafood: mercury and dementia, http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/(healthreport/seafood,-mercury,-and-dementia./7149328, ABC).

Dr. Kröger’s current research program focuses on the medication treatment of seniors affected by dementia. It aims at improving medication use and, more specifically, deprescribing medications of questionable benefit (http://pourvivreensante.com/est-ce-que-je-prends-trop-de-medicaments/). Since 2013, she has been leading intervention and evaluation studies in long-term care facilities to assess whether interdisciplinary knowledge exchange interventions, together with critical medication reviews based on validated criteria, are successful in deprescribing medications of questionable benefit and to decrease residents’ medication load.(« OptimaMed » and « PEPS » studies http://www.ciusss-capitalenationale.gouv.qc.ca/sites/default/files/medication_demence_severe_oct2015.pdf).

Furthermore, Dr. Kröger is an affiliated researcher at the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) where she collaborates in the surveillance of dementia and related diseases in the Quebec population (https://www.inspq.qc.ca/es/node/4223).She is also a member of the Scientific Council of the Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux (INESSS) and a scientist member of the Ethics Research Board of the CIUSSSCN.
