Patient Engagement Certificate Program

DIA's Patient Engagement Certificate Program is a competency-based program

How the Program Works

Patient Engagement Certificate Program

There is an ever-expanding area of collaboration that is occurring among patients, patient organizations, industry, regulators, and governmental organizations to ensure that new drugs developed represent value to the patients they aim to treat, that patient access to innovations is accelerated, and that patient experience and outcomes are optimal.

Integrating the patient experience from the early stages of drug discovery and development through approval and post-marketing is now an accepted norm. However, for many companies, understanding why this is important as well as convincing leadership to invest in these activities can be confusing and elusive. DIA’s Patient Engagement Certificate Program provides the fundamentals about why and how to incorporate patient focus and build organization-wide capabilities.

This comprehensive training program is based on the DIA Patient Engagement Competency Framework developed with experts working in the field and offers up to 15.75 Continuing Education (CE) credits, as well as up to 1.7 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). These competencies outline the functional knowledge and skills needed to incorporate meaningful patient engagement throughout the product lifecycle and embed patient focus into the culture of an organization. The certificate program enables employers to prepare and support their teams in achieving the core competencies they need to build confidence and strengthen their work with patients and patient partners.
