As a global pioneer in the science of patient partnership, the Centre of Excellence for Partnership with Patients and the Public (CEPPP) aims to prepare our society for the future of health.
To make collaborating with patients and the public a science, a culture and the new standard to improve the health of all and the (health) experience of each.
Advancing health has long been seen as a technological challenge. Today, it is time to innovate also on the human side of the ‘how-to’ and the ‘to-be’ in health. Time to integrate the patient into their care team and the citizen into their healthcare system. Time to learn to listen, share and work together.
We believe that the medicine of tomorrow will be collaborative. That it will assert itself curious of everything and open to a great diversity of expertise and experiences. That it will prove more human, more personalized and more effective to cure, care for and accompany.
In our opinion, health is a democratic space, where everyone has their place and their voice. It is also a dialogue between the singular and the plural, between “I am sick” and “we cure”. It is a collective good for which we are all responsible and to which we can all contribute. Because as a partner in health, each citizen is a source of progress.
