Towards Safer Drug Treatment
and Enhanced Patient Empowerment

Building a Future of Personalised Drug Therapy and Enhanced Patient Empowerment: SafePolyMed Project Releases New Video

Age, biological sex, genetic constitution, and current or chronic disease status are among the pivotal factors influencing how drugs interact with each other and our bodies. A "one-size-fits-all" strategy in drug therapy is therefore often inadequate, especially when dealing with the simultaneous prescription of multiple medications, which increases the risk of serious side effects.

Changing the state of the art and working towards the implementation of personalised drug therapy is essential to reduce hospitalisations and deaths attributed to adverse drug reactions. The EU-funded SafePolyMed project is on such an ambitious mission, with international partners working to provide physicians, pharmacists, and patients with innovative tools to define, assess, and manage drug interactions on an individual level. The project is also designing a new approach to involve and empower patients in managing their healthcare proactively. Delve into the brand-new project video to learn more about the holistic and innovative SafePolyMed approach, which aims to increase overall drug safety and enhance patient empowerment.

The clip is available on the SafePolyMed homepage and on YouTube.
