Empowering Patients Together: DiCE and EUPATI Join Forces

June 21, 2024

We are happy to share that Digestive Cancers Europe (DiCE) and the European Patients’ Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) have teamed up to involve patients and carers in digestive cancer advocacy and research. This partnership aims to empower and uplift the lives of people affected by digestive cancers across Europe.

A Shared Mission

DiCE is a leading voice for patients with digestive cancers in Europe. It is driven by a commitment to ensuring every patient gets access to the best possible treatment and care. DiCE aims to significantly impact survival rates and quality of life by empowering patients and carers with the necessary tools and information.

EUPATI, with its robust background in patient education and engagement, brings a wealth of knowledge and resources to the table. This partnership will see both organisations leveraging their strengths to foster a greater understanding of medicines research and development (R&D) among patients and the public.

Empowerment through Education

Maria Dutarte, EUPATI’s Executive Director, emphasised the focus of this collaboration: “We are thrilled to harness our collective expertise with DiCE to bolster our advocacy and research efforts. Our goal is to equip patients and carers with critical educational tools, enhancing their ability to engage effectively in healthcare decisions.”

Echoing the importance of patient empowerment, Zorana Maravic, CEO of Digestive Cancers Europe, shared: “A cancer diagnosis can be a powerful motivator for patients to learn about their condition. We want to channel this energy by providing the right tools, empowering them to participate actively in their treatment and care processes.”

Broadening Horizons

This collaboration is more than a partnership; it’s a step forward in making complex healthcare systems more navigable and understandable for those affected by digestive cancers. EUPATI’s rich insights into patient-friendly information and medicines R&D, combined with DiCE’s advocacy and network, sets up the duo to transform patient involvement in healthcare.

Looking Ahead

As we progress, we will continue to focus on supporting, educating, and advocating for patients and their carers with digestive cancers. This partnership highlights the power of working together to impact the lives of those affected profoundly.

Through this alliance, EUPATI and DiCE reaffirm their commitment to improving survival and quality of life and ensuring that every patient receives optimal care and treatment.

Stay tuned for more updates as we progress in patient empowerment and advocacy.
