The UK Platform for the European Patients‘ Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) met again last month, with trainees from Cohort 1 and 2 of the course in attendance. The meeting provided the opportunity for the trainees to meet the EUPATI UK National Liaison Team for the first time.

The key topics of discussion were people`s experiences of the EUPATI training course to date, including lessons to be learned, ideas about content of the next EUPATI event in November 2015 and development of the network.

EUPATI is a patient-led project aiming to provide education for patients on the medicines development process. This project aims to help patients be more educated and involved in the research and development process of new medicines by offering reliable, objective, comprehensive patient-friendly information and training on the research and development process of medicines.

EUPATI’s national group meetings aim at encouraging networking among trainees and fostering links between trainees, industry partners and health care decision makers.
