STRATEGIES

The primary goal of INRUD is to promote the rational use of pharmaceuticals. INRUD's main strategy to achieve this goal include:

  • an interdisciplinary focus, linking clinical and social sciences;
  • emphasis on understanding behavioural aspects of drug use,particularly beliefs and motivations of providers and consumers;
  • promotion of well-designed research studies to understand these behavioural factors, leading to reproducible interventions to improve drug use, and
  • development of useful tools for research, including standard research methodologies, simplified sampling and data collection strategies, and user-accessible computer software.
