Sponsors have a greater than ever commitment to partner with patients, but the reality is there are limitations and barriers – such as HIPAA, to name just one of many. What are some of the best strategies, programs, technologies and ideas to overcome these limitations and barriers?
The Conference Forum is delighted to present the 2nd Annual Patients as Partners conference. Conference Chair and CISCRP Founder, Ken Getz is joined by Jamie Macdonald, CEO, INC Research and together they lead sessions with pharma, PCORI, CTTI, Faster Cures, FDA, patient advocates and patients to address solutions on how to truly partner with patients in clinical trials.
Our keynotes include Dr Lode Dewulf, VP, Patients Affairs Officer at UCB and Dr Roslyn Schneider, Global Patient Affairs Lead at Pfizer.
The conference is packed with case studies and addresses how sponsors of clinical trials can realistically partner with patients and how patients can partner with sponsors to meet the demands of:
Evolving Science: Personalized Medicine
Higher Quality Data
Lower Dropout Rates
New Therapies Faster to Market
Patients as Partners takes a broad view of the patient experience and how we engage with patients across the entire clinical trial continuum. This includes early research, patient-centric protocol design, recruitment, retention, engagement, and communicating results with patients acting as ambassadors and educators.
“If you put the patient lens in front,
you start to come up with some
really solid answers and solutions.”
- Jeffrey Kasher, PhD, Eli Lilly
The conference is designed for clinical trial executives in pharma and biotech, directors in patient advocacy and academia, and service providers who are looking to incorporate the patient perspective throughout the clinical trial process, valuing patients and treating them as partners, ultimately leading to more successful clinical trials.
