Regional Workshops

The Vaccination Confidence – Patients’ and Professionals’ Awareness, Communication and Trust pilot project coordinated 3 regional workshops with over 120 participants from the CEE, Southern and Western Europe regions to enable us to engage and work with representatives at national levels.


Each workshop took place over one day and followed the principle of active engagement of the participants, with plenary sessions and parallel workshops to enable interactive debate and reflections, focusing on concrete and workable outputs and recommendations.

The format of the sessions was designed to enable participants to transmit the knowledge afterwards to their communities, and to support effective use of the toolkit at their own events, as well as dissemination through participants’ own social media networks.


Integrate national perspectives and gather the voices and concerns of patients, their supporting communities and healthcare professionals “on the ground”.

Create a platform connecting patients, support communities and healthcare professionals in which everyone feels safe and empowered to share their views, hopes or concerns.

Validate and/or refine the content of the toolkit, based on feedback from its target user.

Disseminate the draft Toolkit to the full range of target audiences at national and regional levels and prepare the ground for effective dissemination of the final Toolkit.

Who is the target audience?

Each regional workshop gathered over 40 participants with balanced representation of patients, supporting communities and healthcare professionals from at least three countries in that region.
