website of PAWO

The Health Innovation and Research Institute of Ghent University Hospital has set up a Patient Advisory Board for Scientific Research (PAWO) to make clinical scientific research more accessible and attractive to patients. The patient advisory board consists of people who have developed a specific expertise as experience experts or who have been confronted with a specific disease personally or closely.
The objective of PAWO is to make scientific research more patient-friendly by advising on research projects and sources of information for patients.
