The Danish Medicines Agency has a new and improved website

More targeted news categories, new user-specific entry points and more user-friendly features are some of the new elements of the latest update of the Danish Medicines Agency’s website accessible from today.

Nearly 50,000 users representing the general public, healthcare professionals, researchers, the industry and other users visit our website every month, and we want it to be easier for them to find what they are looking for and to give them better opportunities to decide what kind of information they want to receive from the Danish Medicines Agency.

This is the aim of the latest update of the website of the Danish Medicines Agency.

What’s new?

The most important new features of the upgraded are:

  • More targeted news categories 
    We have added new and additional news categories, and you can now specifically subscribe to communications with importance to patient safety and field safety notices for medical devices, which was not possible before. See all the new categories and subscribe here

  • New homepage and new user-specific entry points 
    We have made three new user-specific entry points for the general public, the healthcare professionals and the industry, and we have reorganised the homepage.

  • Clearer information about our core tasks and on the most visited pages
    We have rewritten a lot of the website content in a clear language and added graphics. This concerns the most visited pages and information about our core tasks – among them licensing of medicines, control and inspections, side effects, medical devices, private imports of medicines and drugs affecting the ability to drive.

In the pipeline, we have new and targeted functionality that will make it easier for pharmacy owners, doctors and other healthcare professionals to understand the rules that each of them must follow when they collaborate with the industry. The new functionality has been developed to follow up on the evaluation of the so-called relationship reform intended to increase the number of compulsory notifications about relationships . 

The website update is part of the implementation of the Danish Medicines Agency’s communication strategy for the period 2017-2021.
