Patient Advocate Meetings
Patient Advocates at Inspire2live get together several times a year to discuss relevant issues in the health care system.
Leading figures in cancer care are invited to guest speak at the meeting, as the backdrop of our periodical discussions. Alongside our guest speaker, we reflect on the subject from the patients perspective.
The discussions, reflections and ideas shared during our PA meetings are different every time but always have an impact.
Sometimes it leads to immediate action to help implement ideas, sometimes PA insights help redirect the thoughts of our guests into becoming more effective in achieving their objectives, it may also lead to great alliances and working groups.
Most importantly these meetings are always an opportunity to bring patient advocates, researchers, clinicians, policy makers and other stakeholders in cancer care to engage and understand the true ways which will bring cancer under control.
