Laura Schackmann, MSc
Researcher Pharmaceutical Care


In the research group, Pharmaceutical Care, I work on projects that contribute to proper use of medicines. In the ‘’Negatief nieuws brengen” project we work on the optimization of communication around changing of medications in the pharmacy. I also participate in projects where we contribute to the support of both written information, in particular the comprehensibility of information provided in the pharmacy, and the use of digital support in the pharmacy. For example, I work on a project in which we are exploring ‘’Mijn Geneesmiddel in Beeld” (MijnGiB). MijnGiB, a personalized medication overview of a patient, which can be supplement to the package insert and label texts of medications, and is intended to help people with their medication use.
