SPAEN Advocacy in Action Award 2021 announced for best projects in sarcoma patients advocacy
Patient advocacy ensures that people are heard, take action and ultimately improve situations, achieve changes or help to fulfil unmet medical needs. We believe it is time to shout out about how important patient advocacy in sarcomas is - for patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals or anyone interested in sarcomas. We want to celebrate and honour outstanding practices, projects, initiatives or campaigns and the creators working behind these activities.
We therefore invited you to participate in the “SPAEN Advocacy in Action Award 2021”!
However, we acknowledged that we all face a different situation due to the coronavirus pandemic. This confronts all of us with new challenges, but also creates room for new and innovative ideas and solutions.
Giving credit to this new situation, we decided to award again two prices for the “SPAEN Advocacy in Action Award 2021”:
• One prize for one for traditional patient advocacy projects and
• one for innovative COVID-19 related projects
The winning projects in the respective categories (traditional / innovative COVID-19-related) will receive 2.000 € each!
A jury of patient advocates and healthcare professionals will evaluate the submissions.
