Our approach

Partners for change

A commitment that goes beyond products

Camurus takes its commitment to improve quality of life for patients with severe and chronic diseases seriously and we believe we have a role to play that extends far beyond developing and commercialising pharmaceutical products.

Our daily work with healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations combined with our science-led therapy expertise, gives us a valuable perspective of the opioid dependence treatment (ODT) landscape and the challenges and obstacles that can stand in the way of innovation and change.

We are also fortunate to witness many examples of outstanding work to improve patient access and treatment in the field of ODT. We firmly believe we have an obligation to share these examples of best practice, so that more treatment providers and their patients can benefit from these innovative approaches.

Collaborative and joint working initiatives

It is widely acknowledged that pharmaceutical companies like Camurus can bring much-needed expertise, skills and resources to complement the expertise of healthcare organisations and patient organisations in the efforts to improve patient care.

Cross-sector engagement of this nature is often co-ordinated through Collaborative and Joint Working initiatives.

Joint working is a specific type of cross-sector project focused on direct benefit to patients.

Collaborative working is a new, broader category of cross-sector working where there is benefit to the NHS with patient care either maintained or improved.
