Minister Bruno Bruins launches initiative for more reliable, easier-to-find information on medicines
Patients need reliable and comprehensible information on medicines that is easier to find online. In order to achieve this, Bruno Bruins (Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport) has launched the Network Patient Information today. Seven organisations today signed a letter of intent and will be working together on achieving this goal. The first specific step to be taken will be to link four different websites: the Netherlands Medicines Authority (MEB), the Netherlands Pharmacovigilance Centre (Lareb), the GPs (NHG, Thuisarts.nl) and the pharmacists (KNMP, Apotheek.nl).
