If you truly want to bring patients in as stakeholders, we have to start at the beginning by understanding patients, their lifestyles and how the trial protocols are developed to reflect that. This session moderated by Dr Marilyn Metcalf, GSK and recorded at the 6th annual Patients as Partners US conference discusses understanding these dynamics and how they will help industry design appropriate initiatives that help meet its goals while aligning with patient's needs.

This session addresses:

  • What can we learn and what resources can we use to develop a baseline understanding of patient lifestyles?
  • What can sponsors do throughout trial protocols that can help support patients, help alleviate their worries/concerns?
  • What is the decision making process a patient goes through when considering treatment options?
  • What do patients consider when determining to participate/not participate in a clinical trial?
  • How can pharma help support/provide tools that will help patients while deciding which treatment pathway they choose?
  • How can advocacy groups support this and how do they help inform patients?

Panelists include:

  • Robert Long, Uplifting Athletes
  • Lilly Stairs, Patient and Advocate
  • Mary Stober Murray, BMS
  • Hannah Watson Eccard, Inspire
  • Robert Weker, Three Time Cancer Survivor
