Event Details

NICH Ecosystem Gathering - March 25th,  2015 - Ramada Plaza Hotel, Shaws Bridge, Belfast.

Medicines are the most common intervention in healthcare.  The increasing population of older citizens, who often have several co-morbidities, necessitates the use of numerous medications.  This in turn presents a range of challenges with regards to medicines optimisation.  This event aims to explore what health professionals, pharmacists, patients and industry can do to combat this growing challenge. 

The goals for this event are to:

  • Identify the challenges facing medicines optimisation
  • Share knowledge & best practice from recognised leaders in medicines optimisation
  • Explore future business opportunities & solutions to address the continued challenges of medicines optimisation
  • Showcase current technology & process solutions for medicines optimisation and to identify gaps in provision
  • Provide an opportunity for industry to meet procurers and buyers 


The format of the meeting will be workshop based and will include keynote speakers, panels, roundtables and an exhibition area.

We are delighted to be collaborating with a range of partners for this NICH-ECO including:

  • Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment (DETI) – event host
  • Department of Health, Social Services & Public Safety
  • Northern Health & Social Care Trust  - Pharmacy and Medicines Management
  • The GET project
  • Other partners will be announced shortly
