Patient Education is a core function of the work of any national member organization (NMO). It plays a vital role in enhancing patient care and outcomes. An educated patient is not only better able to manage their condition, but they are also better placed to support NMO efforts in advocating for improved access to care and treatment.

Listen to this 75-minute webinar that took place on 18th September 2020, chaired by Magdy El-Ekiaby, MD, Regional Advisor for the Middle East. Speakers include David Page (Canada), Brian O’Mahony (Ireland), Solange Sakr El-Hage (Lebanon) and Masood Malik (Pakistan). The objectives of this session are to underline the importance of patient education as part of the NMO’s core functions; share international and regional lessons learnt through years of designing and implementing patient education programs; and discuss the challenges faced and the strategies that can be used to cope with changing country and regional contexts.
