New podcast long read – Patient's advocate

Communications / 27 November 2020

The latest episode of the Drug Safety Matters podcast has dropped. Tune in to hear Marie Lindquist reflect on a career dedicated to patient safety.


In November 2020, longstanding UMC director Marie Lindquist began her well-earned retirement, leaving the reins of the organisation to her successor Hervé Le Louët. As she prepared to open a new chapter in her life, she sat down with Uppsala Reports to take a fond look back at an extraordinary career: a 40-year-long path that began with a knock on the door and turned her into one of the world’s leading advocates for patient safety.

This episode is part of the Drug Safety Matters Long Reads series – the most topical stories from UMC’s pharmacovigilance magazine, brought to you in audio format. Find the original article here.
