Workshop on (implementation of) Patient’ Rights in the European Union – Mapping exercise (PRE-MAX) Brussels: Sept. 10/11
Led by Prof. Helmut Brand’s INTHEALTH group at Maastricht University and the WHO Observatory (represented here by Willy Palm), this project is a tender: CHAFEA/2014/Health/03.
Base on a discussion paper which considered the preliminary findings of the study, and framed round a series of presentations, on patient rights law, enforcement systems, Council of Europe activities and the role of the EU, an invited group of 30 or so experts spent two half days discussing and giving their feedback on the topic. As well as SANCO representatives and European academics from several countries, NGOs such as CPME, EPF, HOPE and EHFF were present. The main reason for our inclusion was our work on the EMPATHiE project.
