The IPPOSI Patient Education Programme delivers training for patients, carers and advocates living in the Republic of Ireland on health research and innovation. This includes education modules on clinical trials, medicines regulatory affairs and health technology assessment.
The programme is designed to enable and empower more patients and patient advocates to work effectively with Irish and EU-level health research and technology partners, agencies and authorities.
The 2019 programme will last for the period of mid-January 2019 until mid-November 2019. Potential candidates may be interested in these short videos, which capture student feedback on last year’s pilot programme and their reasons for taking part.

IPPOSI (Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science and Industry) is a group that Fighting Blindness has been a member of for many years. Through this group we work closely with other IPPOSI members to ensure patients are at the heart of health policy and innovation.
