Patient Engagement eLearning Program
Gain an Understanding of Patient Engagement in Drug Development.
An ever-expanding area of collaboration 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.
