EUPATI is a patient-centered team of 30 organizations, led by the European Patients’ Forum, with partners from patient organizations (The European Genetic Alliance, the European AIDS Treatment Group, and EURORDIS), university and not-for-profit organisations expert in patient and public engagement, along with many European pharmaceutical companies. The common goal is to help patient advocates be more educated and involved in health care.
The European Patients’ Academy (EUPATI), will provide scientifically reliable, objective, comprehensive information to you on the research and development process of medicines. It will increase your capacity to be effective advocates and advisors, eg, in clinical trials, with regulatory authorities and in ethics committees. It will also offer patients and the public basic information, training and education around health issues.
EUPATI aims to make a visible difference, showing you ways that you can have a more meaningful involvement in areas like drug discovery, the safety of medicines and access to treatments. We want to raise public awareness, your awareness, and make you better at navigating your health system. Find out more about the European Patients’ Academy on the link below.
The first training course is already happening with 50 participants from all around EU. From Macedonia we have a participant from Life With Challenges. We hope to realize a basic training in Macedonia next year after the course ends and we translate materials in Macedonian language.
Next training course is starting at the end of this year.
