Rational and safe use of medicines - evidence for the benefit of the patients and the society

The overall aim of our research group is to provide evidence for rational and safe use of medicines. As drug treatment is the most common intervention in healthcare, the evidence obtained can contribute to improved healthcare. Important prerequisites for rational and safe use of medicines is an acceptable balance between benefits and harms, acceptable costs in relation to effects, and adequate drug treatment prescribing by physicians. Thus, rational and safe use of medicines implies that knowledge on all these aspects are available.

Our research projects mainly concern pharmacoepidemiology and therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM), key areas within clinical pharmacology. At present, we perform studies on real-life prescribing practices using clinical as well as register materials. We also focus on safety/effectiveness of drug treatment in clinical practice using the Swedish Prescribed Drug Register linked to other national and regional registers. Additional focus areas are dose-dispensing systems, indicators of prescribing quality, interventions for improved prescribing, and drug concentrations after bariatric surgery.
