The 3rd annual Patients as Partners EU is the only conference in Europe that demonstrates how to involve patients throughout the entire medicines development life cycle to drive greater efficiencies in clinical research.

Patients as Partners EU is co-produced with industry, patient advocacy and government to establish a well-rounded program that addresses the needs of all stakeholders seeking to implement and advance patient involvement across the entire clinical development continuum.

Each session puts ideas into action and demonstrates the what, where, when and how behind the topic. The sessions demonstrate how these insights were used to co-create solutions with patients and measure the impact of those initiatives.

Patients as Partners Europe is accredited by Patients Included and addresses what matters most to patients to enable them to support clinical research:

  1. Understanding and incorporating the patient’s voice in designing clinical trials and developing a clinical endpoint
  2. Vastly improving the patient’s entire experience in a clinical trial
  3. Empowering the patient in the new medicines development process
We are pleased to bring “Ask the Patient” to Patients as Partners EU, a program representing a group of individuals who’ve experienced a clinical trial.

These patients, our Medical Heroes, will be available to answer questions about their clinical trial experience. It is a great opportunity to learn about the realities of a clinical trial directly from the patient’s point of view. They will have a badge identifying their participation and will be available throughout the conference. We will also have an area in the exhibit hall to meet them during breaks.

  • The conference room will be set up in rounds for easier interaction and each table will be provided with a “Tool-Box” and an assortment of specially designed materials to help capture ideas.
  • Each session will conclude with a list of key take-aways presented from the session representative.
  • Result: Each attendee will walk away with a toolbox full of ideas that will support their patient involvement initiatives.

– Who Participated in 2018 –

A special thanks to our advisors for their unwavering guidance and expertise in helping us with the research to craft an in-depth agenda that puts the “discussion” around patient involvement into action across the entire clinical development continuum.
