Patient involvement in the use of medicines and new health technologies is experiencing a tremendous shift due, among other things, to social media and to new ways of interacting between patients and clinicians, and among patients themselves.
The aim of this conference is to bring together patients, practitioners, academics and industry to reflect and discuss this new reality and set the scene to discover new ways of co-creating research and new practices across sectors. What does it mean to be a chronic patient in the 21st century? What role do healthcare professionals and the pharmaceutical industry play in this new landscape of cyber communities? When and how should patient data be linked to other big data and used for research purposes?
The scientific community attending this conference is committed to promote innovative solutions that involve users of medicines throughout the entire life cycle of drug development, not only in the last stages. Patient empowerment can be improved by involving families and medicine users through innovative research methods. A key aspect of the conference is therefore to raise awareness about the importance of patient involvement.
The newly established WHO Collaborating Center in Research and Training in the Patient Perspective on Medicines Use at the Department of Pharmacy and Pharmakon is hosting this conference.
The conference combines plenary sessions and panel discussions with keynote speakers. A series of workshops have been designed to give you as participant the opportunity to reflect deeper within a topic and promote interaction among your colleagues. A third component of this conference are the oral presentation sessions where junior and senior researchers will have the opportunity to share their recent work and get feedback from colleagues.
Abstract for workshops/posters
As a participant, you will have the opportunity to present and discuss your research and have your abstract published in an international peer-reviewed journal.
The Scientific Committee’s decision regarding acceptance of abstracts will be communicated via email no later than April 26th 2019 only to the first author’s contact e-mail entered in the online abstract submission tool.
History of the conference
Since 2003, the NSPC has been a biannual conference for young and experienced researchers, educators, policy makers, patient advocates and more within the field of social and clinical pharmacy as well as health services research. The conference is a platform which facilitates better implementation of treatment, provides a greater understanding of patients, and promotes rational and optimal use of medicines by cross-disciplinary collaborations.
Theme of the conference
The conference theme in 2019 is “patient’s perspective on medicine use” with the focus being research in patient-centered healthcare and treatment systems. We are especially interested in understanding the hurdles and hindrances that patients experience when using medicines. We are seeing a growing recognition in society for the need to include and listen to patients going through treatment.
A key aspect of this conference is raising awareness about the importance of involving patients, relatives and users of medicines in the research process as co-creators of knowledge, using innovative research methods that enhance patient empowerment. We aim at uniting experts, academics and patients organizations doing research and actively working with and for patients.

What to do round and about Copenhagen and Hillerød:
The Social and Clinical Pharmacy Research Group (SCP), Department of Pharmacy at Copenhagen University, is organizing and hosting the 9th Nordic Social Pharmacy and Health Services Research Conference (NSPC) in collaboration with Pharmakon.
In April 2018, SCP has been designated World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in the Patient Perspective on Medicines Use, recognizing the more than 25 years of research experience within this field. Hence, this conference will focus on sharing the latest advancement in the field of patient-centered healthcare services linked to access and use of medicines as well as co-creating knowledge with different relevant stakeholders, including patients and patients’ organizations.
Researchers from all Nordic countries plus Estonia compose the scientific committee. Together they gather competencies in patient driven research methods, experience with vulnerable groups, pharmaceutical care, clinical pharmacy and pharmacoepidemiology.
