The WECAN Academy launches a new online course on Patient Experience Data

Mar 25, 2024 | WECAN Online Academy

This new training teaches how to collect, analyze, and leverage patient feedback, enhancing health outcomes and quality of care 


The European Patient Advocacy Institute (EPAI) is excited to announce the launch of a new online course on Patient Experience Data (PED) powered by the Workgroup of European Cancer Patient Advocacy Network (WECAN) Academy.  

This training is a valuable resource for patients, professionals, and advocates involved in healthcare decision-making. Developed through the collaboration of diverse stakeholders, including patient advocates, researchers, clinicians, representatives of HTA bodies, regulatory authorities, and industry professionals, this course is free and self-paced, allowing learners to select the topics most relevant to them. 




In this online course, learners will discover how to collect, analyze, and leverage patient feedback to enhance care quality and satisfaction. They will understand the importance of Patient Experience Data in improving health outcomes and quality of care.  

The course covers different types of PED, including patient preference, patient-reported outcomes, and real-world evidence. It also explains the methodology used for collecting both quantitative and qualitative PED, and the role of PED in regulatory reviews and clinical trial design 

It provided a fantastic overview of so many different types of Patient Experience Data. I would highly recommend for anyone intending to design and conduct a survey, collect data or do any advocacy project.

Throughout this course, learners will also understand the importance of patient engagement throughout the medical product development process. 

EPAI, with its extensive experience in hosting programs for the patient community and currently running the WECAN Secretariat and many of WECAN’s programs and initiatives, is proud to support this new course and encourages all interested parties to enroll and start learning today.  

Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills in the field of Patient Experience Data.
