On 15 November, Mike Mandelbaum and Jo Davies from ASIF attended Galapagos’ first ever Patient Partnership Day at their Head Office in Mechelen, Belgium. The one-day event was attended by representatives from around 30 patient organisations mostly representing RMDs, and many Galapagos employees from around the world.

The aim of the day was to share ideas about what good patient engagement (PE) is.

Patient engagement is maturing. Patients are rightly becoming more important in research and with policy makers and pharmaceutical companies.

There were sessions covering best practice, the importance of shared decision-making in clinical trial settings. There was also an opportunity to take part in workshops in patient engagement and communications and health literacy. The day ended with a poster session and dinner. ASIF members were also present, including Antonella Celano from APMARR and Andri Phoka from Cyplar, EULAR PARE, Agora and an ASIF Trustee.
