Pisana Ferrari: Patient empowerment in transplantation
“Over 20 years of first-hand experience as a lung transplant patient has offered me a well-rounded perspective on the importance of patient engagement throughout the journey and I would like to provide some thoughts on why strengthening the relationship between the patient and the healthcare professional is so crucial in enhancing the transplant patient experience.”
“The myth is that in ancient times, two of the most prominent of the Olympian gods, Poseidon and Athena, were competing as to who will be the patron of the city that was dynamically evolving in the area from the gulf of Saronicos to the mountains of Attica. Poseidon offered to the people of the city power and domination at sea. He promised them strength that all other cities in Greece would fear.”
Pisana Ferrari: Patients at the heart of the congress
“It is a huge honour and pleasure for me to have been invited to be Honorary Co-Chair of the ESOT Congress 2023, the most prestigious medical event in Europe in the field of transplantation. The decision to invite a patient representative to take on this very important role testifies to ESOT’s commitment to foster cooperation and dialogue between patients and healthcare professionals and to ensure patient representation and participation in ESOT activities.”
