While the value of patient engagement is increasingly recognised in the clinical and launch phases of drug development, it is still a relatively new concept to involve patients in the early discovery phase. By understanding the burden of disease and patient’s aspirations for new treatments from the outset, pharma companies can ensure they are developing medicines that matter to patients. As experts in the disease area and therapeutic landscape, Medical Affairs are well placed to initiate and develop effective patient partnerships to ensure that the patient voice is incorporated during early discovery and beyond.
In this webinar we will explore practical approaches to engaging patients in early development, introducing key resources and discussing best practices. These discussions will be tailored to meet the needs of all Medical Affairs colleagues, regardless of experience.
