Gravitate-Health - safer use of medication
Professor Anne Moen at the University of Oslo, who also has a part-time post at our centre, is coordinating the international project Gravitate-Health. The goal is to improve access to information about own health and medicines.
The project with 40 partners in 15 countries was launched yesterday, November 16. The Norwegian Centre for E-health Research is one of the Norwegian partners and contributes with the researchers Monika Johansen, Kari Dyb and Unn Sollid Manskow.
Partners from civil society, academia and industry have joined forces to develop new, patient-focused healthcare information tools that will offer citizens access to trustworthy, relevant information about medicines. Today, paper leaflets that come with medicines are often hard to understand.
Gravitate-Health is a unique public-private strategic partnership that is co-led by UiO (public partner coordinator) and Pfizer (industry lead). The budget is 18.5 million EUR.
