On May 17, Ricardo Fernandes, Project Lead of our STAND4Kids network, participated in the Workshop on “Collaboration between researchers, patients, health professionals, sponsor, academia and the community to strengthen clinical trials”. This Workshop was developed under the Conference “Clinical Trials | Research that gives hope to patients and brings a better life to all”.

The aim of this APIFARMA-sponsored initiative is to continue to contribute to build an informed patient community that is actively involved in clinical research activities in Portugal.
