EPF’s 2016 Work programme is a continuation of the 2015 work programme and has two overarching objectives derived from the strategic goals in our 2014 – 2020 strategic plan:
1. Strengthening the patient perspective and impact in EU health-related policy, programmes and decision-making through evidence-based, results-oriented patient advocacy;
2. Reinforcing the capacity of patients and patient organisations to contribute effectively to better health and social care for all patients in the EU and enhancing their accountability and mutual solidarity;
The WP will contribute significantly to the objectives of the Third Health Programme, mainly objective 3 “supporting public health capacity building and contributing to innovative, efficient and sustainable health systems” and 4” facilitating access to better and safer healthcare”. It contributes specifically to the implementation of key EU legislation on cross-border healthcare, patient safety and quality of care with a major event in 2016, clinical trials, medical devices, data protection, personalised medicines as well as eHealth and HTA. Patient access will be a major focus of our activities with work on health literacy and discrimination. We will achieve our objectives through targeted policy, communication, membership engagement, capacity building and partnership activities resulting in deliverables set by our two thematic areas of patient empowerment and equitable access to quality care. They are also in line with EPF’s strategic plan and stringent governance/consultation procedures. We will continue to place emphasis on EPF’s Youth Group, the needs of patients from vulnerable groups and non-discrimination on the grounds of health. We will collaborate closely with health stakeholder allies in the public health arena and mutually support relevant dossiers. The WP”s processes, outputs and impact will be measured against our two over-arching objectives and specific indicators will be evaluated on an on-going basis
