The Rising Tide Floats All Boats

Professional Patient Advocacy has been an emerging profession for more than 12 years. As the practice grows, individuals from all areas of the care continuum are realizing the true value of advocacy. Independent advocates, hospital advocates and other advocacy professionals will come together like never before.

Whether you currently work as an advocate, independently or in a health system, or you are a professional who interfaces in some other way with the healthcare system, or a patient or caregiver with keen interest in the system and how its outcomes can be improved, you are welcome to join us at our conference.

Come to meet fellow advocates; hear interesting speakers, find other professionals who can complement your practice, earn CEs, and leave with more new and rich ideas than you can imagine.

Join the excitement at this, our second ICOPA!

Patient Advocacy Around the World!

In lieu of gathering together, we invited advocates from around the world to share videos of themselves describing their advocacy experiences in their countries.

From Naomi in Japan, to Oana in France, from Dorothy and Rachel in Australia, to Ayman in Saudi Arabia, advocates in Canada and the United States, and more, we invite you to hear what they have to say, then ask them questions about advocacy in their countries, too.

Meet our international advocates here.
