Patient participation in scientific research

Experience & expertise:

I was one of the founders of the patient advisory board for scientific research (PAWO) @uzgent and I am the current coordinator and secretary.
You can contact me if you would like the feedback of PAWO, for example for:

  • the review of research protocols
  • brainstorming about certain topics
  • patient participation in general

Relevant stakeholder connections:

Several members of our Patient Advisory Board for Scientific Research (PAWO) are chairs/members of diverse patient associations.
