CPME believes the patient-doctor relationship is fundamental in achieving high quality healthcare for every patient. It follows that professional practice and patients’ rights must be at the very core of CPME’s work. CPME is actively involved in policy discussions and legislative processes at EU and European level ranging from patient safety and quality of care, to health systems as well as doctors’ qualifications and working conditions. By bringing the doctors’ voice to the debate, CPME aims to improve the real-life relevance of policies and ensure that the improvement of healthcare is the objective of all action.
