patients voice study visit in italy

On 7-10 November 2016, a Cypriot delegation of 10 people was hosted in Rome by Active Citizenship Network for a study visit in the framework of the EU project “Patients’ Voice”. The trip was meant to give them a practical insight on protection of patients’ rights, advocacy techniques and strategies and policy building. The 4-day visit included classes and meetings with several representatives of Italian associations with an expertise in the health field. The tours in local hospitals and exchange of views with health professionals and medical directors were also of great interest and appreciated.
