The Charter on Patient Empowerment encapsulates the "cardinal rules" of patient empowerment. The document outlines what really matters to patients.
European Patients’ Forum
The European Patients’ Forum (EPF) is an umbrella organisation of patient organisations across Europe and across disease-areas. Our 78 members include disease-specific patient groups active at EU level and national coalitions of patients.
The Charter was co-developed with EPF members and defines the fundamental principles of patient empowerment from the patients' perspective. The document should be “owned” by patient communities across the EU, and supported by other stakeholders to ensure concrete commitment from the different actors.
