The Patient perspective – Instil the Patients’ Voice into Your Market Access Strategy to Enhance Your Product’s Success

Involving patient groups has become a cornerstone to the success of new product launches.  Advance the validity of your R&D results, RWE and your market access strategy by incorporating the patient voice from the earliest possible stage of development.  Create a blueprint to:

  • Initiate greater collaboration with patient groups earlier on to engage them within the boundaries of compliance
  • Understand the benefits of involving patients in the trial design stage
  • Gain early insight into how patients react to your product that can enhance your success throughout your development cycle, submission processes and beyond to patient support
