IEEPO 2022 'Action for Change: Transforming Healthcare Together' event

This event has now passed - you can read the event overview here.

The International Experience Exchange with Patient Organisations (IEEPO) External Advisory Committee (EAC) and the Global IEEPO core team are delighted to invite you IEEPO’s first virtual event of 2022 on Monday 21st March - Wednesday 23rd March.

Hosted virtually and continuing on the theme of ‘Transforming Healthcare Together', the first IEEPO event of 2022 will shift its focus towards addressing the calls to action of the IEEPO Position Paper on ‘Humanising healthcare’. Launched in November last year, the IEEPO Position Paper highlighted the underlying cracks in healthcare systems exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic globally. There is a clear need for improvement and a clear need for change towards putting patients at the heart of healthcare.

Join us as we discuss;

  1. What ACTION is needed to build new, more sustainable, and resilient healthcare systems, towards a more ‘humanised healthcare’ system. 
  2. Your role as patient advocates in the leadership of this systematic ACTION.
  3. The importance of a multi-stakeholder approach in the healthcare ecosystem as we shift focus to ACTION.

It’s time to act now, act locally, act together!

Day 1 - Monday 21 March, 8.30 - 10.00/16.30 - 18.00 CET - Get inspired!

Building on the learnings and calls to action of the IEEPO Position Paper on ‘Humanising healthcare’, Day 1 of the event will invite all stakeholders to take a seat at the table. Join us and do not forget to take notes, you will not want to miss these tactical conversations with internationally renowned expert voices in patient advocacy, healthcare, industry, and policy in multiple interactive sessions about how 2022 is the year for patient-driven action.   

Day 2 - Tuesday 22 March, 8.30 - 10.00/16.30 - 18.00 CET - Get answers! 

Day 2 will allow you to ‘take your seat at the table’ with the ever charismatic Roche CEO, Severin Schwan to gain his thoughts on the role of industry in rebuilding resilient healthcare in partnership with the patient community in his yearly live Q&A. You’ll also be able to submit your questions to Severin ahead of the day so look out for the question submission form on EventMobi (IEEPO’s go to event-management platform).

You’ve heard of the community favourite IEEPO Regional Workshops? This year we are taking a fresher, more action-oriented, approach to these sessions, now called IEEPO ‘Action Workshops’. Re-designed to maximise your experience exchange opportunities with other international patient advocates. The sessions will take place in small groups, where you’ll have 90 minutes to design an action plan around a specific issue and share your experiences along the way. Roche staff will be invited to join the meeting to support facilitating and note-taking. 

These sessions will be held in English unless stated otherwise.

We look forward to seeing you there and hope you will leave invigorated, inspired, encouraged and supported by the thought leadership, learning opportunities, experience exchange and practical support available.
