Why attend the Heart Failure Policy Summit 2022?

The Summit is the only dedicated policy event for the heart failure community, providing a much-needed forum for collaboration and discussion between patient advocates from different sectors. It aims to elevate the efforts of national-level heart failure advocates to engage decision-makers and policymakers across Europe. The Summit helps members of our community to form relationships and learn from one another’s experiences.

The sessions will feature speakers from the heart failure and wider health advocacy communities, including high-profile clinical leaders and experienced patient advocates. We will also be joined by policymakers, past and present, who will present case studies of successful advocacy initiatives.
