The news@fmul requested a reaction from its coordinator, Professor João Costa, who could not have been more pleased with the news.
This September, we received a 3-year grant by the Erasmus+ Programme to enhance safe prescribing in the European Union. The aim of the project is to develop, test and implement a standardised assessment on safe prescribing during the undergraduate medical curriculum. This assessment will be mostly freely available to all Universities in the European Union. On Sunday 27th of October, we had the first face-to-face meeting at Amsterdam UMC. The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon (through the Laboratory of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and under the coordination of Professor João Costa) is one of the partners in this project, which includes 9 EU universities, a test developer, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Association of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (EACPT). During the kick-start, we developed a draft of the assessment blueprint. We aim to conduct a pilot in all partner Universities at the end of 2020.”.
The Faculty's Clinical and Therapeutic Pharmacology laboratory is headed by Professor Joaquim Ferreira, who also thanks the “support given by the FMUL Directorate when formalizing the application for the Erasmus + Program”.
