Toolkit for the launch of the heart valve patient journey report

Heart valve disease: working together to create a better patient journey

Report launches on 10 December
Please do not share any of these materials publicly before the launch date

In early 2020, the Global Heart Hub’s Heart Valve Disease Patient Council partnered with The Health Policy Partnership, an independent health policy research organisation, to develop a report aiming to raise stakeholder awareness of heart valve disease across Europe. The report was created under the guidance of a multidisciplinary advisory group, whose members included patient representatives and different healthcare professionals engaged in heart valve disease care from around Europe.

We are delighted to provide you with materials to prepare for the report launch on 10 December.
