Hackathon – Enabling Patient Involvement while managing interests and relationships with multiple stakeholders

EPF is pleased to be featuring a hackathon as an integral part of our Congress programme. The hackathon will focus on the problem of enabling meaningful patient involvement, whilst managing differing and sometimes diverging interests of health stakeholders. It will involve multi-disciplinary teams, led by patient representatives. Participants will be selected according to criteria agreed by the Advisory Board.

By the end of the hackathon, participants will have better understanding of potential conflict of interest issues from a multi-stakeholder perspective and having engaged in the process hackathon participants will:

  • Understand the dynamics of trust building between actors;
  • Develop collaborative solutions to drive and nurture meaningful patient involvement, manage interests and avoid conflicts of interest.

Participants will be evaluated by a jury comprising Adrian van den Hoven (Director General, Medicines for Europe), Susanna Palkonen and Dr Miklós Szócska (Former Minister of State for Health in Hungary, Director of The Health Services Management Training Centre of the Semmelweis University).

The announcement of Hackathon winners will be made during the Networking Reception.
