EFA speaks at EPF on rights and needs of older patients

EFA Vice president Christine Rolland was invited to speak from the perspective of older patients with respiratory diseases as a response to the Polish Presidency’s representative presentation on their priorities at a conference of the European Patients’ Forum in Warsaw in June. The conference examined the rights and needs, respect, dignity and quality of life of older patients and their carers in the context of the challenges confronting health and welfare systems such as ageing and sustainability. One of the major conclusions was that older patients and their experiences of managing their disease are valuable resources to learn from. All presentations are available on the EPF website
