Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science & Industry

IPPOSI would like to extend our sincere congratulations to all of the 2021 graduates of our Patient Education Programme!

On 7 March, 2022, the graduates and educators came together to receive their certificates and to engage with two panel discussions featuring patient advocates. Click here to view photos from the ‘hybrid’ event.

We would like to sincerely thank all of our education partners. The 2021 IPPOSI Patient Education Programme was supported by the Health Research Board (Grant Number: IPPOSI-2020-1), as well as in-kind resources from IPPOSI and the 2021 Programme Education Partners:

  • University College Dublin Clinical Research Centre (UCD CRC)
  • The Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA)
  • The Discipline of Pharmacology & Therapeutics, Trinity College Dublin (TCD), in association with the National Centre for Pharmacoeconomics (NCPE) and the Health Information & Quality Authority (HIQA)
March 7th event

The IPPOSI Patient Education Programme is inspired by IPPOSI’s continued involvement in, and partnership with, the European Patients Academy in Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI). To learn more about the programme, click here.

For the first panel, EUPATI representatives Maria Dutarte & Coline Guiol together with patient advocates Mandy Daly and Nuala Ryan joined us for a discussion on how the graduates can get involved with EUPATI and the Irish EUPATI National Platform.

We were then joined by Rachel Morrogh (Irish Cancer Society), Bernadette Gilroy (PKU Ireland) Sarah McLoughlin and Siobhan Freeney (Lobular Breast Cancer Ireland) who discussed their experience with patient advocacy and public and patient involvement in Ireland and internationally.
