As part of the Advocate Development Programme (ADP), MPE is organising an online webinar about science in patient advocacy. Although the webinars held within the ADP are usually open only to our ADP trainees, on this occasion we would like to invite to the webinar all our members and patient advocates interested in science. The webinar “Science in patient advocacy” will be given by Bettina Ryll, chair of the ESMO Patient Advocates Working Group (PAWG) and founder of the Melanoma Patient Network Europe (MPNE).
Only by being part of decision-making in healthcare the patient perspective will be taken into account in clinical research and the drug development process. Patient advocates are increasingly involved in decision-making in healthcare and the setting of the research agenda. Knowing how to access scientific literature, correctly analyse and interpret data, hold a scientific argument and effectively and correctly communicate scientific content have become essential advocacy skills.
This webinar will be held on 14 December 2017 (18:00-19:30 CET). The session will last about 90 minutes, including a 50 minute presentation from Bettina Ryll and a 40 minute Q&A session at the end.
Registration is free of charge. Also, feel free to forward the registration link to everyone who might be interested in attending the webinar.
Should you be unable to attend the webinar, please feel free to send your questions in advance to and we will make sure they reach our speakers.
A recording of the webinar will be available shortly after the session.
We look forward to your participation.
