The Conferences Forum Launches Patients as Partners Event

New York, NY (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

The Conference Forum is proud to present Patients as Partners with CISCRP’s founder Ken Getz as conference chair, along with an exciting speaking faculty representing industry, advocacy, academia, patients and the FDA. Together, they address the latest strategies, technologies and policies to vastly improve the patient experience in clinical trials. The conference addresses how sponsors of clinical trials can realistically partner with patients and how patients can partner with sponsors to meet the demands of:

  • Evolving Science: Personalized Medicine
  • Higher Quality Data
  • Lower Dropout Rates
  • New Therapies Faster to Market

Patients as Partners takes a broad view of the patient experience and how we engage with patients across the entire clinical trial continuum. This includes early research, patient-centric protocol design, recruitment, retention, engagement, and communicating results with patients acting as ambassadors and educators.

“If you put the patient lens in front, you start to come up with some really solid answers and solutions.” - Jeffrey Kasher, PhD, Eli Lilly

The conference is designed for clinical trial executives in pharma and biotech, directors in patient advocacy and academia, and service providers who are looking to incorporate the patient perspective throughout the clinical trial process, valuing patients and treating them as partners, ultimately leading to more successful clinical trials. Take advantage of the first early bird and register by December 20th.
