Working for patients with rare, low-prevalence and complex diseases

Role of National Hubs

CPMS National Hubs

Contact Point

The National Hub serves as national contact point and national reference contact to:

  • To dissemination of the CPMS at national/local level
  • For specialists, general practitioners, and other healthcare professionals in each country in order to provide information on the functioning of the platform
  • To connecting even the more remoter healthcare providers and patients to highly specialised services of the ERN ReCONNET

Promotion and Dissemination

The National Hub:

  • Enables a wider diffusion of the CPMS potentialities and of the CPMS usage, making the CPMS service available for a larger number of patients, even for those living in disadvantaged areas, far from reference centers
  • Communicates in the local language and helps in overcoming language barriers
  • Ensures that the CPMS is presented in national/local conferences, meetings and web-conferences (at least two times a year)
  • Creates a leaflet on the CPMS in national language
