Personalised Medicine – 1.4 Why the Nordic perspective?
From Sisse Rye Ostrowski on November 1st, 2021
The technical revolution enables us to analyse large amounts of data in healthcare and research and continuously increase our understanding of the complex factors that determine disease risk and outcome. This holds great potential to support a change from the one-size-fits-all paradigm to personalised or precision medicine. The Nordic countries have a well-functioning data infrastructure, which gives us the opportunity to be at the forefront of this revolution – especially if many healthcare professionals and researchers understand the potential. The course is developed by the University of Iceland and the University of Copenhagen in collaboration with medical faculties across the Nordic countries. It was initiated by Faculty leaders in the Education Working Group of Nordic Medical Schools and received funding from the Joint Committee of the Nordic Medical Research Councils (NOS-M).
