EFNA neurology advocacy workshop
This workshop will take place on March 7th and 8th in Brussels at the Crowne Plaza – Le Palace Hotel.
The main theme will be: "Linking Global, European and National Policy Priorities".
It is aimed at national neurology advocates from the EU Member States who are interested in learning more about how their national advocacy can align with, and inform, EFNA’s policy priorities at the EU and International levels.
EFNA coordinates a Member of the European Parliament Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain. This will continue after the upcoming EU elections and focus on three themes during the 2019-2024 mandate:
- Fighting Stigma, Isolation and Discrimination
- Ensuring Equitable Access to Treatment, Services and Supports
- Promoting Patient Empowerment for Increased Involvement and Engagement
Before the elections EFNA is working on updating its policy documents to outline the key challenges in each of the above thematic areas and proposing policy solutions. The EAN has been one of the partners already consulted on this work, and will be an ongoing partner of EFNA in its advocacy work.
During the workshop, EFNA would like to present and discuss its new policy documents with active advocates from across the EU – in the context of addresses on the future of EU health advocacy and the place for neurology within that. We would also like to explore ideas on how we can create better links between our work at the European/global level and advocacy activities nationally.
