Why is the training important?

The mindset in the health ecosystem shifted from the risk of doing patient engagement to the risk of not doing it.

Involving patients in a meaningful way will not only determine the quality of the medical solution but will also increase performance in various phases of the medicines development

Drug development may once have been daunted by the prospect of patient engagement – indeed, cost and compliance were common reasons for avoiding it entirely, but this mindset is shifting

This training programme for health industry professionals will give you the context and scope to understand the potential and benefits of patient engagement

Meaningful patient engagement requires the proper tools and methods and this co-created training programme can help you understand the industry standards


The Patient Engagement Industry Training was requested and endorsed by 6 pharma companies from the PFMD partnership, and co-created together with EUPATI and other stakeholders.
