Blended Learning Course “Management of Medicines in International Health”
The number and categories of usable medicines are steadily rising but the financial resources available for health services remain limited. This means that the rational management of medicines is becoming increasingly important in public health care in order to have optimal use of the allocated budget and offer health services with the best quality.
The aim of this online course, which is delivered in English, is to introduce the participants to the subject of rational management of medicines in health services. It teaches them about international agreements, national drugs policies, the management cycle of medicines, essential and positive lists of medicines, standard treatment guidelines, personal lists of medicines and treatments, quality assurance and factors in rational use of drugs for health professionals. At the end of the course they will learn the methods and skills needed to develop projects and prepare funding applications.
