EUPATI is nowadays well recognized as one the best platforms that has stimulated patient involvement across Europe.
I found the interactive elements of the EUPATI expert training extremely valuable. Also the best practice sessions after the course, as well as the Alumni Forum where we can support and discuss with other Fellows.
It is a good way for patient advocates to learn basic skills.
This program needs to be provided long-term. It is absolutely necessary to make sure that we have knowledgeable patients representatives for all medical conditions.
