PharmacoEpidemiology and Drug Safety (PharmaSafe)

Medications are an essential aspect of health care. The PharmacoEpidemiology & Drug Safety Research Group (PharmaSafe) covers a wide range of research activities related to optimal use and safety of medication on an individual and societal level. We use epidemiological methods to address questions of drug safety that cannot be studies in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Our work includes monitoring of drug utilization in pregnancy, perception towards medicines, methodology research, analysis of medication safety on patient outcomes and health economics.

The research group is multidiciplinary and has expertise in pharmacoepidemiology and drug safety, biostatistics, health economics and pharmacotherapy.
