The EJPRD has launched a new training activity focused on Leadership and Communications Skills for patient advocates. The course aims to teach participants presentation, negotiation and leadership skills through plenary presentations and interactive sessions, to improve their ability to communicate and represent needs assertively, influence critical decisions and guide strategic decision-making when engaging with healthcare providers and other rare disease stakeholders.
Sixty patient representatives will be able to attend the two training days, the 26th and 27th of October 2023, organized by the Medical University of Gdańsk (MUG) in close collaboration with EURORDIS.
A total of 21 fellowships are offered for the accommodations, meals during training hours, and up to 435€ of travel costs. Submit your fellowship applications before 26th April 2023!
The EJP RD is committed to ensuring the training is accessible to patient representatives and advocates from all backgrounds, with those from Eastern Europe particularly encouraged to apply.
