European standard for patient involvement in health care services

GPCC initiates the first European standard for patient involvement in health care services.

The standard called Patient involvement in healthcare services– Minimum requirements for person-centred care, will aim to aim to create favourable structural conditions for person-centred care.
The standardization Committee has held two European meetings in Stockholm and Prague and during 2017 there are at least another two European meetings planned. To date, more than 13 countries are members in this consensus driven standardization work, including Sweden, France, Norway, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Cypres and Austria. In addition, the European Association for the Co-ordination of Consumer Representation and the European Trade Union Confederation are observers in order to provide input into the standardization work.

The European Committee has elected Dr Axel Wolf from GPCC to be the chair of the standardization process. Each participating country has or is in the start-up phase of a national committee, which are comprised of experts that provide input, expert knowledge and a discussion forum. The Swedish committee is led by Prof Karl Swedberg from GPCC, and comprises to date over 13 national organisations ranging from care providers (county councils and municipals), professional organisations, patient organisations as well as industry partners.
