Dr. Med.Sci dissertation defence by Henrik Støvring: Using prescription data as indicators of disease or drug use, new analytic methods based on renewal processes
Presenter: Lotte Rasmussen, Pharmacist, PhD student
Description: The aim of this study was to measure the validity of the prescriber information recorded in the Danish National Prescription Registry (DNPR). The problem of validity only pertains to non-electronic prescriptions and we therefore based our study on 2,000 non-electronic prescriptions from five pharmacies in Denmark. The validity of the recorded prescriber information was measured at the level of the individual prescriber and the prescriber type, respectively. Furthermore, we calculated the positive predictive value and the sensitivity for the classification of prescriber types in the DNPR.

Comparison of the Five Danish Regions Regarding Demographic Characteristics, Healthcare Utilization, and Medication Use–A Descriptive Cross-Sectional Study.
Presenter: Daniel Pilsgaard Henriksen, MD PhD
Description: The aim of this study was to assess whether the 5 Danish Regions each were representative of the entire Danish population. Denmark is well known for its plethora of registers. Many studies are conducted on research databases that only cover parts of Denmark, and regional differences could potentially threaten these studies’ external validity. The video is in Danish.
