The European Patients’ Forum (EPF), has recently launched a training course for young patient advocates, “Advocacy 101”. The EPF is an umbrella organisation of patient organisations across Europe and across disease-areas. “Advocacy 101” is a free-of-charge, tailored training course built to help gain a solid base of knowledge and understanding of patient advocacy.
Some of the key questions that the programme addresses:
- What is patient advocacy?
- What is the difference between advocacy, lobbying, and being a patient representative?
- How do you make and use an advocacy map?
- Where do experts get their expertise from?
