Interested in Personalized Prevention? Collaborate with us in the Horizon Europe project "PROPHET" (Personalised Prevention Roadmap for the Future Healthcare), aimed at developing a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for the implementation of Personalised Prevention approaches.
Every year 900,000 people die prematurely in the European Union (EU) due to disease risk factors that can be prevented through a shift from the treatment of established diseases to a “person-centered” disease prevention and early diagnosis practice. Scientific advances in the last decades enabled the identification of novel biomarkers that, together with other clinical and lifestyle personal information, enable tailoring preventive measures to improve individual health and/or avoiding diseases. Although prevention is nowadays a high priority at EU level, personalised preventive strategies are not as widely used as other personalised medicine approaches.
Personalised prevention strategies are only possible if citizens, health professionals, researchers and policy makers are all aware of their potential and have the knowledge and resources to design and implement them.
ACN think you would make a fantastic member of our expert Stakeholder Forum and we would like to invite you to become part of it. This PROPHET Forum is the structure through which PROPHET engages with external stakeholders and collects their input on main project outcomes, namely the SRIA which will get European-wide visibility. Please take just 1 minute to complete this form to confirm your participation – it includes the Terms of Reference.
As a first consultation step, we would also like to invite you to participate in an online survey that will aim to map the barriers, challenges, and enablers for adopting personalised preventive approaches in Health systems in Europe. Answering the survey will take approximately 15minutes. If you cannot complete the whole survey at once, you can save and return at a later moment. You can access the survey HERE The results of the survey will therefore contribute to the development of a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for personalised prevention.
Thank you for your collaboration.
