PACE believes that patients should be at the heart of all decisions affecting their treatment and care. While many can advocate for change, for better cancer care, the patient voice is indispensable and must be heard. In this respect, PACE is doing what it can to work with patient advocacy to understand their needs and the needs of those they represent; to find new ways of partnership that enable the patient perspective to come to the fore.
Our aim is to establish PACE as a valued partner with the oncology advocacy community; forging relationships built on mutual respect and transparency. We want to work with our advocacy colleagues to discuss the direction of travel of cancer care, ensuring the best possible standard and access to care that is possible.
eMEET (Medicine Evaluation Educational Training) is an online interactive training program designed to help patient advocates navigate through the complex world of medicine development, evaluation and assessment.
The program was created in collaboration with internationally renowned experts in the field of patient involvement, health technology assessment (HTA) and web training and aims to help patient advocates to better share their experience and influence decisions related to access of new medicines. eMEET uses a variety of tools such as video presentations, animations and exercises to show how patient experience can be integrated into HTA process ensuring it successfully highlights patient issues, informs decision-making and is aligned with scientific evidence.
