Patient & Public Involvement (PPI) is gaining momentum in Ireland and is of increasing relevance to many health stakeholders.
The IPPOSI patient education programme is designed to enable and empower patients and patient advocates to work effectively with Irish and EU-level health research & technology partners, agencies & authorities.
Are you (or your patient group) interested in becoming more involved in clinical trial design, the regulation of medicines or medical devices, or in how the Irish state assesses new health technologies?
