Patient Advocates: Expanding Their Role in Conducting Successful Clinical Trials


  • January 28, 2015

  • Patient advocacy organizations have grown over the past 25 years in affecting legislative and policy issues to fight for the patient voice and rights across numerous therapeutic areas.

    Patient advocates have earned respect for their work in lobbying for legislation that ensures high-quality patient care, for raising millions of dollars for research, and for increasing awareness of clinical trials. Many advocates now have a “seat at the table” for discussions and decision-making in their healthcare communities, the FDA, leading associations and more.

    We are so pleased to bring the Patients as Partners in Clinical Research conference taking place March 16-17 in Philadelphia.  We bring together patient advocates together with pharma, FDA, PCORI, academia and more to 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
