Meet the Polish EUPATI National Platform
The EUPATI National Platform (ENP) in Poland aims to bring together patient, academic and industry representatives who want to work in partnership to promote patient education and enhance patient involvement in the Polish medicines research and development (R&D) process.
Plans for the Polish National Platform are underway, and once established, it will be led by an Executive Committee – or a National Team – which shares information among members and grows the discussion around national patient involvement issues and opportunities. The Team will meet regularly and provide ongoing management and administrative support to the Platform
- Stanisław Maćkowiak – Federation of Polish Patients (FPP)
- Witold Michalek – Federation of Polish Patients (FPP)
- Hanna Milczarek – Federation of Polish Patients (FPP)
- Prof. Boleslaw Samolinski -Medical University of Warsaw (MUW)
- Artur Białoszewski – Medical University of Warsaw (MUW)
- Ewa Kiersztyn – Infarma

Our work to date
In 2013, EUPATI created the National Team in the Poland with the support of representatives of the Federation of Polish Patients (FPP), Medical University of Warsaw (MUW), and Infarma. In 2015, the Team joined up with Fundacja My Pacjenci and BMS and all are now making plans for the launch of the EUPATI National Platform in Poland – a broad-based network of national health partners interested in patient education and patient involvement in medicines R&D. The launch will take place in early 2016, together with the first training opportunities for Polish patients using Polish language educational material.
Our future plans
Throughout 2016, we invite all national partners with an interest in patient education and patient involvement to join the EUPATI National Platform. We hope that patient, academic and industry representatives can work with government officials, regulatory bodies, health technology assessment agencies, associations of doctors and nurses, medical journalists, and many more, to better include patients across the medicines R&D process.
To prepare the way for greater patient involvement, the EUPATI National Platform provides patients with access to important information and education, including the new EUPATI Patient Advocate Toolbox and Online Library which can be adapted further to meet individual training and learning needs. The National Platform also engages with trainees from the 14-month EUPATI Patient Expert Course to see how they might move their knowledge from theory to practice and to explore how the course material might be shared with other patient communities.
