The A to Z of medicines
Blogging with EUPATI
PARADIGM launched with EUPATI input
The word PARADIGM has taken on a whole new meaning in the EUPATI community! The acronym stands for “Patients Active in Research and Dialogues for an Improved Generation of Medicines”. The aim of the PARADIGM project is to advance meaningful patient engagement in the life cycle of medicines for better health outcomes. The 1st Open Patient Engagement Forum, co-organised by PFMD, EUPATI and PARADIGM was held in Brussels on 10th April. The forum, held a month after the launch of PARADIGM, was a launchpad to gain early insights and inputs on the project workplan and to start discussions on specific tasks via thematic workshops. Eighty-four delegates attended the forum, among them four EUPATI Fellows: Dominique Hamerlijnck, Begonya Nafria, Victoria Fonsou and Joan Jordan. Here is what each of us experienced and took away from the event.
Mini-course on Community Advisory Boards
Community Advisory Boards (CABs) are one of the proven and effective models of involvement and working together in medicine development. Established, operated and controlled by the patient community, CABs provide a neutral, scientifically grounded space for researchers, regulators, patients and the industry to discuss current issues and to jointly influence the processes.

Mini-course starter kit – Protocol design
This EUPATI Mini-course starter kit is designed for patient involvement in protocol design.EUPATI Mini-course starter kits have been derived from content found in the EUPATI toolbox and EUPATI Patient Expert Training Course. The starter kits are thought to address roles that patients play in medicines development for example those shown in the figure showing the roadmap of patient involvement in medicine development.

How did you adapt the Toolbox?
The EUPATI Toolbox is a fantastic new resource containing over 3000 pieces of content to help you learn more about the medicines research and development (R&D) process. Since its release in January 2016, tens of thousands of visitors from across Europe have been discovering, adapting and sharing tools to educate themselves and their patient communities. There are many different ways to use the EUPATI Toolbox, and we want to capture how different people in different countries are getting on.
