Patients as Partners

at DoubleTree by Hilton in Philadelphia, PA

Patients as Partners addresses issues that enable patients to support clinical research including: incorporating the patient’s voice in clinical trial design, improving the patient’s clinic experience, and empowering the patient throughout the therapy development process.

Patients as Partners is accredited by Patients Included and addresses what matters most to patients to enable them to support clinical research:

  1. Understanding and incorporating the patient’s voice in designing clinical trials and developing a clinical endpoint
  2. Vastly improving the patient’s entire experience in a clinical trial
  3. Empowering the patient in the new medicines development process

Patients as Partners is co-produced with patients, industry, academia, government and nonprofit organizations to establish a well-rounded program that addresses the needs of all stakeholders seeking to implement and advance patient involvement across the entire clinical development continuum.

Each session seeks to put ideas into action and must demonstrate the what, where, when and how behind the topic. For example when addressing the topic of “How to Incorporate patient Insights in Clinical Research”, the speaker representing AstraZeneca will show the planning, process and tools used to obtain the patient insights. They will also demonstrate how these insights were used to co-create solutions with patients and measure the impact of those initiatives.

Additionally, most sessions have at least one confirmed patient speaker to ensure the patient perspective is represented for the topic at hand.
