Our partner EATRIS has let us know about a great new resource for researchers conducting studies with patients!
EATRIS and the European Patients’ Forum (EPF), together with affiliated partner European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG) has launched the Patient Engagement Resource Centre, a platform designed to help researchers better engage patients in their research. The PERC was developed as part of the Horizon 2020 project, EATRIS-Plus.
The PERC is an easy to navigate platform that offers publicly available guidance, training, and practical tools that researchers can use to get started with patient engagement.
The PERC also serves as a practical tool for patients to access and promote to the researchers they collaborate with. The Centre features selected relevant public resources to help researchers understand the basics of patient engagement, and guide them through the different phases of patient engagement (from planning to conducting and evaluating), with the ultimate aim to foster meaningful patient engagement practices in research.
