WPA is proud to share a new resource developed in partnership with Pfizer and other advocacy leaders worldwide. The Patient Advocacy Leadership Collective (PALC) is an innovative hub that provides connectivity, community resources, and tools focused on sustainable capacity building for patient advocates globally. The PALC is an excellent platform with a focus on supporting the growth, development, and leadership of patient advocacy organizations and offers a NextGen Leadership, Mentorship, and Global Health Fellows program. This platform has been designed to support patient advocacy organizations around the world with evidence-based tools and resources that elevate our work in support of patient communities.
We are keen to incorporate our expertise into this offering. It should only take about 10 minutes to fill out the needs assessment survey, which can also be accessed on the Patient Advocacy Leadership Collective website, under the Programs tab.
Advocacy skills are necessary for patient organizations as these allow the patients to actively participate in their healthcare, improve communication with healthcare providers, access information and resources, and contribute to positive changes in the healthcare system.
