Vanessa Smith, one of our first patient ambassadors and member of the Patient Advisory Group (PAG) from the beginning, is also a busy blogger.
Her latest blog is entitled: 'Connecting patients and clinicians: Why patient perspectives matter in research.' In it Vanessa talks about her journey both as a patient as a patient ambassador.
She stresses why the patient perspective, especially in research is so important and what is needed from researchers and publishers to make research more accessible and relevant to patients.
You fill find her tips for other patients on writing patient information in there as well.
At the moment Vanessa is looking forward to be involved in the design of the new EPAP module on patient participation in EU research projects.
