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, FasterCures, FDA, patient advocates and patients to address solutions on how to truly partner with patients in clinical trials.
- What Does it Really Mean to Partner with Patients in Clinical Trials? -
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
- 2015 Keynotes -
Our keynotes include Dr Lode Dewulf, VP, Patient Affairs Officer at UCB and Dr Roslyn Schneider, Global Patient Affairs Lead at Pfizer.
“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 addresses how sponsors of clinical trials can realistically partner with patients and how patients can partner with sponsors to meet the demands of:
Making Trials More Accessible to More Patients
Lower Dropout Rates
Evolving Science: Personalized Medicine
Higher Quality Data
New Therapies Faster to Market
The conference is designed for clinical trial executives in pharma and biotech, directors in patient advocacy, patients involved in clinical trials, academia, government and service providers who are looking to incorporate the patient perspective throughout the clinical trial process.
Join us on March 16-17 in Philadelphia to explore the patient experience and how we engage with patients across the entire clinical trial continuum.
Executive Director, Business Development
