Patient Engagement Consultant
admedicum Business for Patients GmbH & Co KG

One of her key land mark projects has been to facilitate a consumer charter for the company which was led by patients and their families to add insight and direction to the way in which a large corporate body conducts its business.

Much has changed since then, with journals and congresses now offering a plethora of enhancements and the rise of social media as a channel for information dissemination.
