Track 5: Patient Engagement

DIA 2017: Driving Insights to Action

This track, composed of a myriad of sessions, is themed, Operationalizing Patient Engagement, and Concepts of Meaningful Patient Engagement. It will address meaningful patient engagement in medical product development, from early product development, and approval, through maintenance phases. It focuses on important questions for all stakeholders, including:

  • How do we meaningfully engage patients and incorporate their voices into decision-making throughout the medical product lifecycle?
  • How do we become truly patient- (and people-) centric in our approach?
  • How do we operationalize patient-centric approaches in our day-to-day work?
  • How can we measure the effectiveness of our efforts, both for patient outcomes and to meet the needs of other stakeholders such as industry and regulatory decision-makers?
  • What have we learned that can be used to drive more meaningful patient engagement?
  • How do stakeholders best work together to leverage their collective power and expertise to promote meaningful involvement of patients?
