Medical research charities in the UK have been successfully integrating patient insight into their activities for over 10 years. In this session presented at the 2nd annual Patients as Partners Europe in January 2018, Claire Nolan, Research Involvement Manager, Parkinson's UK, and Chris MacDonald, Research Involvement Manager, Arthritis Research UK, explore a shift in attitiude towards pharmaceutical and medical research charity collaboration. They share how charities have developed their processes to strike a balance of delivering effective research outcomes whilst ensuring principled and meaningful patient involvement and how these experiences, resources, and processes can be used practically to support industry to put the needs and voice of patients at the centre of medicines development.
The 3rd annual Patients as Partners Europe will be presented January 28-29, 2019 in London, UK. Find more information here.
