Patient involvement in medicines research and development is a major driving force for transformational change in health care and the development of innovative medicines.
This is why the EUPATI Project is such an exciting and unique opportunity - offering patients and patient advocates education and information on how new therapies are being developed and regulated.
EUPATI works at national levels, implementing EUPATI initiatives in 18 countries. The national teams offer workshops and tutorials for patient communities, interacting with professionals from clinical research, ethics committees, regulators and the pharmaceutical industry.
The current challenge is to bring all these initiatives and experiences together to create value for everyone. For the patient this means better understanding of research and innovation, leading to better therapies and eventually to improved health and well-being.
The conference in December built the foundation for fruitful collaboration between all stakeholders with a role in the medicines development process. It focussed on nurturing an evolving sustainable ecosystem for medical innovation, asking how patients, regulators, academia and industry can continue to work together, how they can further support each other in a trusted and respectful way, while committing themselves to our shared goal of Better Health.
