Patient engagement in scientific research

The European Society of Cardiology and the Harteraad see patient engagement as a partnership between patients, scientists and healthcare professionals that actively support their mission of reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease. Their aim is to listen and learn from patients how to:

  • find better ways of implementing evidence
  • support patient self-management
  • improve patient outcomes
  • reduce health inequities

Both organisations will be involved in two symposia to be organized in 2022 and 2023 by the TRAIN-HEART network to increase awarenss among early stage researchers on the importance of involving patients in desiging, conducting and dissemination their research.
