What was iSIMPATHY?
iSIMPATHY was a €3.1M EU funded project that ran across the three jurisdictions of Northern Ireland, Scotland and the border areas of the Republic of Ireland from October 2019 until March 2023.
iSIMPATHY sought to transform the approach to optimisation of medicines through the delivery of medicine reviews to over 6,000 patients taking multiple medicines, and in delivering training to 120 GPs, hospital doctors and pharmacists. It provided a significant contribution towards the embedding of a single approach for polypharmacy management as well as firmly establishing the value of cross-border working in this field.
