The European Patients’ Rights Day
May 23, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
Active Citizenship Network is happy to invite you to the XII edition of the European Patients’ Rights Day.
The topic of this year conference will be “Therapeutic adherence: value the impact for patients and healthcare system”.
The aim of the convention is to debate, inform and exchange good practices on therapeutic adherence, sharing and discussing the different experiences and more effective solutions in overcoming some of the existing barriers to appropriate prescription and adherence to pharmacological medical plans.
In line with the topic of healthcare systems’ sustainability, addressed in the previous conferences of the European Patients‘ Rights Day, the twelfth edition will contribute to the current policy debate on how to achieve a more sustainable provision of care. The poor adherence to treatments has, in fact, significant implications for the expenditures of healthcare and it is estimated to increase costs of approximately €80 billion a year.
