Patient Empowerment


The Patient Empowerment programme focuses on promoting the interests of citizens in the border region between the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany (the border region) in relation to cross-border health care.


Examples of activities within this programme are:

  • Jointly developing instruments for the cross-border participation of patients and citizens, e.g. self-help-friendly hospitals.
  • Monitoring citizens rights and obligations in relation to cross-border care in the border region.
  • Involving the perspective of citizens and patients in all sorts of on-going cross-border projects in the border region.
