Ownership and organisation

The knowledge centre is organised under the Norwegian Directorate of Health but is scientifically and professionally independent. The Knowledge Centre has no authority to develop health policy or responsibility to implement policies.  A separate Advisory Board councels our management.

We carry out work for regional health authorities, The Norwegian Directorate of Health, the Norwegian Medicines Agency, and the Ministry of Health and Care Services. We also carry out work for clinical environments and for professional and user interest groups. Some projects are initated internally.

The centre was established in 2004.
