High-level Policy Roundtable - “Making Empowerment a Reality: Patients as Partners”


EPF is organising a high-level policy roundtable on the 22nd of June to present the results of the Patient Empowerment Campaign and to discuss further steps at policy level. 

The roundtable will take place on Wednesday 22 June 2016 at the European Parliament in Brussels. Hosted by MEPs Karin Kadenbach (S&D, Austria), Andrey Kovatchev (EPP, Bulgaria), and Roberta Metsola (EPP, Malta), the event will present the main achievements of the campaign and offer a platform for exchange of good practices and patients testimonials.

A debate will follow where MEPs, officials from the European Commission and patient organisations will discuss the next actions to promote and implement patient empowerment at European and national level.

The event will also be the opportunity to officially present two milestones of the campaign: the Charter on Patient Empowerment and the Roadmap for Actions. The Charter defines the fundamental principles of patient empowerment from the patients' perspective, and the Roadmap turns these principles into 8 priority action areas that need to be taken at different levels in order to apply the principles in policy and practice.

The PROGRAMME of the roundtable is available here, RSVP to REGISTER.

Only for members: Please find here the reimbursement policy.
