Patient awareness and engagement are critical in bringing innovative treatments to market and reaching those who need them. The donation to the EUPATI patient education scholarship helps make patient engagement the new norm in the clinical development process. Each scholarship covers the full cost of the program’s online modules and in-person training events.

About FindMeCure and EUPATI
FindMeCure supports patient education and awareness by helping patients find treatments in development through the clinical trial search platform by the same name and by helping the industry plan clinical trials closer to the patient through a data intelligence platform developed for feasibility.
EUPATI is a multi-stakeholder public-private partnership providing accessible, innovative, and inclusive education that empowers patients and patient representatives with the right knowledge, skills, and competencies to effectively engage and partner with all other stakeholders in the medicines research and development process.
As part of the shared commitment to enhancing the engagement of patients and patient representatives in medicines research and development, FindMeCure joined the EUPATI Partnership of patient organizations, academia, and industry in 2020. This collaboration is now taking the form of scholarships for patients who want to become patient experts, EUPATI Fellows, and engage with the different stakeholders in the medicine development process. EUPATI has trained over 200 Patient Experts from different disease areas through its Patient Expert Training Programme.
“By participating in the EUPATI Expert Training Programme, patients can be empowered to understand how their voice can shape decisions in the healthcare continuum and help develop the treatments of tomorrow.”
Patient recruitment and retention remain one of the most challenging hurdles in clinical development and the success of clinical trials is wholly dependent on the engagement of patients. Medpace is a full-service, global clinical research organization (CRO) that places patients at the center of a trial to increase awareness, reach, and enrollment while helping yield successful outcomes in terms of study design, study results, and patient participation and satisfaction.
