PFMD was present at the first ever Patients as Partners (PaP) event to be held in Europe (5-6 February, London). Nicholas Brooke, PFMD CEO and Jan Geissler, Director at EUPATI, talked about the fragmented patient engagement landscape, the journey towards a systematic approach to patient involvement and the Global Landscape Mapping and Networking Tool as a first step in co-creating an implementable meta-framework for patient engagement across the life cycle of medicines.
The 2-day event was co-chaired by PFMD’s Advisory Committee member Anton Hoos. Jan Geisler and Nicholas Brooke outlined PFMD’s aims of improving global health by co-designing future health care for patients with patients to over 100 participants. The presentations provided the ideal platform to present PFMD projects and encourage attendees to visit the PFMD booth, explore the Mapping and Networking Tool and find out how to get involved.
