WHO IS WHO – NORCE Norwegian Research Centre AS

HAPPY PATIENT targets both patients, primary health care professionals (general practitioners, nurses, dentists and pharmacists), health care professionals working at OOH services, and nursing homes. We will invite the scientific committees and the relevant societies for all the professionals involved (family doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, OOH services, and nursing homes), as well as national patient associations and policymakers. The adapted EU AMR Guidelines will be translated to the national languages of the Target Countries. 

Our partner NORCE is leading the WP4 which is in charge of all these tasks: NORCE is one of Norway‘s largest independent research institutes, with more than 750 employees from around the world.

Rebnord‘s areas of expertise are infections and use of antibiotics as well as use of point of care tests in Primary Care, while Lindberg‘s field is respiratory tract infections and use of antibiotics in Primary Care Out-of-Hours services.
