PSC Patients Europe is active in various working parties and attends those international conferences frequently that we consider important and that are close to our heart.
- Lay versions of articles & reports
- Lowering the R&D time for new medicine
- Getting the patient perspective incorporated in plans, laws etc.
- Patient empowerment
- Making sure the paediatric element is incorporated
Just an example of one of our projects:
Together with NHG (Dutch College of General Prationers) we have developed & published a brochure for GP´s and other first line carers/health care professionals
This brochure, for useage after diagnosis, gives doctors the opportunity to read more about PSC in general, line of treatment, socail aspects etc., enabling them to take better care of PSCers.
GP Brochure International
With the framework of a GP brochure in our hands, we offer the template to other interested parties worldwide, at no extra charge and copyright-free. This will enable e.g. countries where there are only a few PSC patients, to have adequate and reliable information available for PSCers. At teh same time, during the proiject process we also develop amazing contacts to collaborate with further.
Currently the GP Brochure PSC is under construction in various countries, including Slovakia and Lithuania.
Quality Standard of care for PSC from a Patient's perspective
During this nationwide bottleneck analysis, we will have an inventory amongst physicians, patients and care givers on challenges and barriers they encounter in the medical field Further anlaysis will lead to an indepth analysis of the various possible barriers, for which we collectively will seek proper solutions. (2-year program).
PSC researchers in other countries have also shown intrest in this project and would like to see it run in their country too. This will take place as of second half 2016.
