NON-PHARMACOLOGICAL INTERVENTION SOCIETY

General Interest Learned Society
not-for-profit
NPI: Non-pharmacological, non-invasive, targeted and evidence-based interventions.

“Alternative medicines” are multiplying and diversifying at the beginning of this century. Far from a fad, they are permanently anchored in our lives. Unfortunately, their use is proving to be an obstacle course, even a path to serious disappointments.. Science today makes it possible to sort the wheat, non-drug interventions (NDIs) or Non-Pharmacological Interventions (NPIs) from the chaff, alternative medicines.

In a decade, a new health sector has taken its place between biomedical treatments and everyday consumer products-services. It consolidates its care and prevention protocols, its target audiences, its professions and its contexts of use through research, the quality approach and standardization. To accompany this growth and to follow the needs identified by the “Montpellier Call*”, a Learned Society was to be created, we named it the Non-Pharmacological Interventions Society (NPIS).

ITS AIMS

Federate and boost NPIs research and innovation,

Contribute to the development of NPIs through a scientific and quality approach,

Promote standardization of NPIs for human health,

Promote NPIs certification for implementation in individual care, health and life pathways,

Create a collaborative space to reflect the development of the NPIs stream,

Involve all actors in local, regional, national, European and international projects based on the NPIs benchmarks of good practice,

Facilitate collaborations between research and training institutions and health, social and health prevention actors.

NPIs DEFINITION

Short definition

«Non-pharmacological, targeted and non-invasive, evidence-based intervention»

Long definition

« Psychological, physical, nutritional, digital or basic intervention on a person to prevent, care or cure. It is personalized and integrated into its life path. It materializes in a protocol form. It mobilizes known or hypothetical biopsychosocial mechanisms. It has been the subject of at least one published intervention study and carried out according to a recognized methodology that has evaluated its benefits and risks.» 

THE PRESIDENT’S WORD

NPIS works to develop research on NPIs for their better integration into health systems with a comprehensive and integrative vision of health. It organizes scientific and interprofessional congresses. It publishes annual updated guides on research, the standardisation of pathways, good inter-professional practices and the economics of NIEs. It offers interprofessional continuing education. It develops shared tools for the evaluation of NIEs. She will soon lead a scientific journal indexed on NIEs. Users, practitioners, researchers, decision-makers interested in NMIs, join us to build a more human, close and integrative health.
