Patient Poster Session

For the EAU Virtual Congress in July 2021, we asked patients and patient advocates around the world to present their research and to give their perspective on how to improve patient-physician communications, and address presumptions and change perceptions on both sides.

We thank all those who submitted their abstract for their enormous effort and their willingness to share their story. This helped us identify unmet needs that are not or insufficiently addressed by the disease-orientated physician

The EAU22 Patient Poster Session on Monday, 4 July 2022 will focus on addressing those needs. For this year, patients and patient advocates’ submissions range from solutions, novel approaches and best practices revolving around physical and psychological well-being, finance and work, patient involvement in clinical research, development of care pathways and clinical guidelines, and patient engagement/advocacy in healthcare policy.

Out of all the submissions, a total of six abstracts were selected to be presented in the Patient Poster Session:
