What is the greatest insight you gained from attending a conference this year?
We attended the patients as partners in clinical trials conference in March 2015. Presentations discussed specific examples not only of how patient-oriented approaches could be used to promote clinical trial enrollment and retention, but also of how such programs were being used to refine overall approaches to studying and treating disease so as to provide more meaningful results to patients. We brought back and were able to incorporate specific approaches to gathering and utilizing patient feedback about the scientific and logistical aspects of Purdue’s protocols, as well as an understanding of key success factors for such programs.
