IPPOSI – The Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science and Industry – is a patient-led organisation that works with patients, government, industry, science and academia to put patients at the heart of health policy and innovation.
To that end we hold meetings, workshops and training days that promote this objective, whether it is in the area of rare diseases, clinical trials, Health Technology Assessment, innovation, health information, connected health – or any other relevant topic that will promote patient understanding, and patient involvement in the treatment and decision-making processes that affect them in Ireland and Europe.
Through more than 10 years of forging close links and alliances between Patients, Clinicians, Scientists, Industry, Regulators and Policy Makers, IPPOSI has been the primary contact and conduit for patients interested in engaging more actively in the R&D process. IPPOSI is also recognised as a key influencer contributing towards the overall development of Health Research Policy in Ireland.
IPPOSI membership is open to all groups with an interest in healthcare and research and development; Patient Representatives, Academic, Science or the Healthcare Industry.
