EPF Spring Conference 20, 21 March 2007Comments Off on EPF Spring Conference 20, 21 March 2007


The European Patients’ Forum hosted their third EU conference on 20th-21st March 2007 in Brussels. The themes for this year’s meeting included: the empowerment of patients and their role at EU level; the ‘Informed Patient’; and the sustainability of patient organisations into the future.
Concrete areas of action for EPF to take forward at EU level in partnership with other stakeholders were identified. These recommendations were endorsed by all 120 participants, including the EPF membership, patient representatives from across the EU member states, key health stakeholder groups and federations in Brussels, the European Commission, European Parliament and National Government health representatives.   
The conference report and further recommendations from the working group will be available in mid May.
