Survey on Medication Shortage in Europe

Upcoming, nurses survey on medication shortageMedication shortage, we see it far too often in the nurses clinical practice, and it is expected to occur more often. In collaboration with @Medicine-for-Europe, this Spring a  scientific Survey with Medicine for Europe will be launched to idetify a number of aspects but abouve all: 
- Identify the root causes of the shortages
- In addition, we will aim at analysing the perception of the different stakeholders on the cause of the shortages
- We will identify how the different stakeholders would like to be informed about the shortages and which information they require
- The survey should be able to tell us which type of medicines are more frequently in shortage and why
- Lastly, we might analyse how shortages can be prevented or mitigated.
We'll keep you updated
