GRiP INITIATIVES

 

Ongoing initiative

Call for Patient Organizations - Your participation in Paediatric Research is needed

 

Children do not respond to medications in the same way as adults. However, the majority of drugs prescribed for children have not been tested in children. Without adequate data from such testing, prescribing drugs appropriately becomes challenging for clinicians treating children, from infancy through to adolescence. Not only does this create a challenge for health professionals but it also places the health of children at stake as available treatments are not always as effective as possible. Parents, children with a (chronic) disease and their organisations must join forces to improve this situation.

 

If you are interested in how GRiP engage with patient organizations, or if you are a patients' representative and would like to collaborate with GRiP, please read the dedicated page of this section - Call for Patient Organizations
