Patient Advocates

Have you every wanted to be a patient advocate.

Some people argue that if people want to be able to participate in the drug development process, they first need an initiation into the research and development world. 

The European Patients' Academy on Therapeutic Innovation EUPATI (CLICK) course, which began in October 2014, is designed to be just such an initiation.

The course they do runs over some months  and at the end of which participants who have successfully completed its six modules will be awarded a certificate from EUPATI. The course is free of cost, operating like a scholarship program for the nearly 50 successful applicants from a pool of over 300 applications. 

Even though the course is free to participants, most of the operating costs for EUPATI are minimal because the training course is largely offered online. All participants must pass an exam at the end of each module to proceed to the next one.
