About a million people suffer from myocardial infarction yearly in Europe. Cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programs successfully support and educate patients in much-needed lifestyle improvements and lowering their CV risk. However, they do not reach enough people (attendance before COVID-19 between 8 and 50%) and their short duration often renders positive results not sustainable long term. The pandemic has accelerated the transformation of post-MI care and sharpened the need for high-quality remote CR dramatically. Rehab+ is a mobile CR program that includes regular interaction with a health advisor and integration with the healthcare team. Rehab+ is being co-created with patients by rehab centres, Amgen and Liva.
Patients can be highly valuable partners for companies, authorities, and HCPs in all development phases of novel medicines and therapies. EUPATI has come up with the 14-month Patient Expert Training Course over the last years that gives patients deeper insights into the respective processes. The present EUPATI Reload project aims to transform this sequential course into a modular on-demand format to be incorporated into EUPATI’s learning portfolio, wherein four of the existing six modules will be converted into separate online training units. The new proposal under BP 2021 will focus on the repackaging and transformation of the two remaining voluminous modules 5 and 6 and the development of additional new content in the areas of medical devices and digital health.
The ProtectUrLife project has been designed to improve citizens’ understanding of how to live a healthy life and lower the risks of life-impacting events, such as fractures, heart attacks and stroke.

ProtectUrLife is an EIT Health-backed initiative to give free bone and heart screenings to citizens around Europe. The project has been designed to improve citizens’ understanding of how to live a healthy life and lower the risks of life-impacting events, such as fractures, heart attacks and stroke.
New technologies are changing the health sector and the pressure to adapt accordingly and to use these technologies is high. The Transformative Digital Skills for Healthcare programme from our Core Partner Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft aimed at healthcare professionals, physicians, and hospital management is specifically designed by a multidisciplinary expert team in response to the rising demand for digital skills by healthcare professionals. The programme is divided into three parts: transversal (broader, cross-thematic) skills, technology modules (focus on specific technology applications), and management modules. The modular structure allows participants to focus on individual learning paths and choose the most relevant skills to support their own learning journey.
