Abstract: This paper describes the protocol for a process evaluation of the early implementation of nurse-led monitoring using the structured adverse drug reaction (ADRe) profile, which addresses the adverse effects of mental health medicines in care homes for older people. The study investigates clinical impact and what is needed to sustain utilisation in routine practice. It utilises interviews and observations with the participants of all five homes involved in earlier research, and five newly recruited homes caring for people prescribed mental health medicines. Outcome measures are the numbers and nature of problems addressed and understanding of changes needed to optimise clinical gain and sustain implementation.
