Covid has made the public more aware of clinical trials, patients want their voices heard, calls for diversity have grown louder, and regulators continue to raise the bar.  As more and more companies embed the patient voice in every aspect of medicines development, leaders are interested in guidance and best practices to continue moving the needle.  

How do we design patient-centered assessment tools that are fit-for-purpose for regulatory and payer use?  What are the guidelines for collecting and reporting patient-experience data?  How do we advance patient access to research through digital technology and enable diverse representation?  In short, how do we stay ahead of the curve and continue to evolve as an industry?
