– What Does it Really Mean to Partner 
with Patients in Clinical Trials? –

Kimberly, Anne, Suzanne and Lode

Kimberly McClearly, FasterCures,
Dr Anne Beal, Sanofi, Suzanne Schrandt, PCORI and Dr Lode Dewulf, UCB challenged us to new heights in how we work with patients at Patients as Partners

This conference is dedicated to understanding what it will take to achieve a true partnership. There is no guidebook or one right strategy. This is why it’s so important we bring together all the stakeholders who affect the patients and address ideas and solutions for the following:

    • Understanding and incorporating the patient’s voice in designing clinical trials / developing a clinical endpoint
    • Vastly improving the patient’s entire experience in a clinical trial
