The 5th Annual Patients as Partners US returns to Philadelphia in March 2018. 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.
PATIENTS INCLUDED ACCREDITED: Patients as Partners US 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
ASK THE PATIENTS: We are pleased to bring back "Ask the Patient" to Patients as Partners US, a program representing a group of individuals who've experienced a clinical trial. These patients will be available to answer questions about their clinical trial experience. It is a great opportunity to learn about the realities of a clinical trial directly from the patient's point of view. They will have a badge identifying their participation and will be available throughout the conference. We will also have an area in the exhibit hall to meet them during breaks.
PATIENT ENGAGEMENT TOOLBOX: The conference room will be set up in rounds for easier interaction and each table will be provided with a paper "Tool-Box" and an assortment of specially designed materials to help capture ideas. Each session will conclude with a list of key take-aways presented from the session representative. As a result, each attendee will walk away with a toolbox full of ideas that will support their patient involvement initiatives.
