Online courses




We offer courses on the patient perspective on medicines use, and how to further explore this. Course participants will get an understanding of patients’ lives with medicines and will learn how (and try themselves) to conduct a small study.

We offer two learning options:

    • Option 1. The fundamentals of the patient perspective on medicines use.

      4-week online course running continuously every 4 weeks. See a video about the course.
      Registration via Coursera.

    • Option 2. The fundamentals of the use of interview methods to explore patients’ perspectives on medicines use.

      4-week online course running continuously every 4 weeks.  See video about the course
      Registration via Coursera



Both courses are developed for professionals who can influence patients’ use of medicines, and who wish to improve their awareness of patients’ perspectives. Course participants can be: 

  • Anyone who makes decisions about medicines which have an impact on patients
  • Anyone who is willing to implement and make a change (e.g. in quality and development work, policies and guidelines)



Organisers and teachers

The courses are organized in collaboration with researchers from the University of Oslo, University of Groningen, and Trinity College Dublin.
