This year saw a change in the way that the ECO/ICO congress took place. Patients worked with the new adaptations to ensure our voice continued to be heard.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the usual congress that would be held for ECO-ICO2020 had to adapt and change to ensure it was able to take place. As we were not able to attend in person, this brought with it some difficulties in ensuring that the patient’s voice continue to be included.
To ensure we achieved this, short welcome videos were created by the patient community. These were played at the beginning of key sessions.
These videos helped to ensure we were able to build on work that had been made at previous congresses and achieved our goal!
