Patient Advocate Inventory


Welcome to your Patient Advocate Inventory!

This survey is intended to make an inventory in order to select the right people for Patient Advocate (PA) roles within our global non-profit organisation.

We have started a global project to recruit and educate PA's on our expenses in 2020 and this will be finished in 2022. The project is intended to fly PA's from all over the world to the Netherlands and educate our PA's, during a workshop, on our expenses. Because of our investment we need to make a proper selection of the PA candidates.

The workshop is combined with our global member conference in the Netherlands. One of the deliverables is to build an e-learning environment as well based on the input and output of the workshop.
