The European Patients’ Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) (This link will take you away from our website) is a multi-stakeholder programme led and hosted by the European Patients’ Forum (EPF) (This link will take you away from our website) originally established by the IMI-EUPATI project (2012-2017). It is a successful programme that provides education and training to increase the capacity and capability of patients to understand and contribute to medicines research and development (R&D), and to improve the availability of medical information for the health interested public. It does so by conducting its established Patient Expert Training Course which has trained more than 150 patient experts to date and by providing an open-access multilingual toolbox (This link will take you away from our website) that has served more than 1.6 million users around the world to date.
The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (The ALLIANCE) chairs the EUPATI UK National Liaison Team (This link will take you away from our website), made up of an Academic representative and Industry representatives, working alongside the newly graduated Fellows. The UK National Liaison Team aims to raise the profile of EUPATI on a country level, form a national network of stakeholders who can help disseminate information about EUPATI’s education and information resources, and generate a dialogue around future patient involvement in the medicines research and development process in the UK.
