MOIC has joined the Enable Adherence COST Action network.

Mike Scott and Anita Hogg will participate in this multidisciplinary network of over 100 researchers from 39 partner countries across Europe. This is an opportunity to contribute and learn more from the stakeholders on this group and ultimately look at ways to improve medication adherence.

The COST Action “European Network to Advance Best practices & technology on medication adherence” (ENABLE) aims to create a multidisciplinary network of relevant stakeholders that work collaboratively towards economically viable implementation of medication adherence enhancing technologies across different European healthcare systems.

Due to an ageing society, there is a steady increase in chronic diseases and multi-morbidity in Europe. This requires a multidisciplinary response, which often involves lifestyle changes combined with lifetime medication use.

MOIC is uniquely placed to contribute to the ENABLE Adherence COST Action. In addition to having an established network of partners across healthcare, academia, industry and community/voluntary sectors, MOIC has expertise in person-centred, multidisciplinary and collaborative approaches to innovation in safe and effective medicines use.

MOIC has experience of looking at the role of digital enablement of all aspects of medicines optimisation and how such technology can bring added benefits to our citizens. WE have a holistic understanding of the barriers and facilitators of medicines adherence for patients/carers, healthcare professionals, organisations and policy makers, current solutions and the need to drive person-centred innovation in clinical and technological approaches to adherence.
