IMI to boost patient involvement in its activities
IMI is creating a pool of patient experts to strengthen the role and voice of patients in IMI activities at both strategic and operational levels. IMI has always involved patients in its work; now the plan is to take patient engagement at IMI to the next level. Benefits for patients of getting involved in this new initiative include the opportunity to influence IMI’s activities; work alongside experts from other sectors; raise the profile of patients as equal partners in research; and learn first-hand about the latest developments in their disease area.
