On my personal site I’m blogging about the second annual Patients In Power conference happening today and tomorrow in Athens, Greece, organized by SPM member Kathi Apostolidis.
7:39 a.m. ET – The European Charter of Patients Rights was described in a stimulating presentation by Mariano Votta, director of the Active Citizenship Network. My post is here. They view being an active empowered patient as just part of a being an active, empowered citizen. How great is that?? (In our view at SPM that’s kind of obvious, but you don’t hear it discussed much, anywhere!)
And naturally, being active and empowered in anything requires access to the relevant information – another them of SPM.
