NCPIE will extrapolate key finding from the survey research to develop and conduct and assess a national risk communications campaign through traditional and social media channels addressing medication risk reduction to promote safe and appropriate medicine use. The research initiative is being conducted with input from the Johns Hopkins Center for Drug Safety and Effectiveness, (CDSE), a new center jointly supported by the Bloomberg School of Public Health and Johns Hopkins Medicine. NCPIE has been awarded a collaborative agreement grant from the FDA to develop and implement a medication risk and drug safety communications research agenda and educational initiative.
