The involvement of patients in biomedical development, regulatory processes, clinical trials and the complex provision of healthcare services makes sense not only for compliance reasons but also because there is ample evidence in research that involved and informed patients have better health outcomes.
However, desiging, implementing and operating a patient involvement strategy can be challenging, time consuming and ethically laborius. Patvocates has a broad experience in designing patient involvement strategies and structures, always acting as an arms-length mediator between patient communities and the other party.
It may also be the case that your company or organisation already has a patient engagement strategy. Patvocates can audit, streamline and facilitate this strategy, and we can assist in adapting it to your actual needs and situation. We help with strategy development, adaptation, and the exploration of why and how cooperation with patient groups can be made more meaningful and purposeful.
