The 2019 IPPOSI Patient Education Programme is now open for applications (deadline of midnight on Sunday, 18 November 2018).
The programme delivers training for patients, carers and advocates living in the Republic of Ireland on health research and innovation. This includes education modules on medicines regulatory affairs, clinical trials and health technology assessment.
The programme is designed to enable and empower more patients and patient advocates to work effectively with Irish and EU-level health research and technology partners, agencies and authorities.
The HPRA is pleased to announce that we will again be one of a number of education partners working with IPPOSI to deliver the 2019 programme following our participation in the highly successful pilot programme which was completed earlier this year.
Further information, including details of the application process, is available from the IPPOSI website. Potential candidates may be interested in these short videos, which capture student feedback on last year’s pilot programme and their reasons for taking part.
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.
