Presenter: Zack Pemberton-Whiteley, Acute Leukaemia Network

The following presentation held at the WECAN Academy 2019 will help you to understand:

  • The basics of affordability and sustainability of healthcare systems
  • The difference between HTA and payer perspective
  • The specific challenges across Europe, especially the east-west divide on GDP, pricing and access

  • How to influence reimbursement decisions as a patient advocate
  • How to position as patient advocate between a rock and a hard place, between affordability and sustainability
