Prescription databases are a valuable source of information on use of prescription medicines. All the Nordic countries have prescription registers, used for research purposes and to some extent as guidance in decision making. Iceland‘s Prescription Registry has the added purpose of surveillance of physician prescribing and of patient consumption.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
