The Mission:

Embed lived experience across the value chain to surpass centricity and embrace groundbreaking integration

Appointing patient voices in review committees and in senior company roles is becoming the norm; we’re adapting how we collaborate with increasingly influential online patient communities and patient leaders pre- and post-launch; we know that novel hybrid engagement strategies must put patient need and preference above all else. Reuters Events' Pharma & Patient unites diverse patient and pharma voices evolving patient engagement to address unmet needs better than ever before.

2021’s Essential Themes:

  • Embed patient lived experiences: Build long-term, meaningful relationships with a diverse range of patients and advocates from early R&D onwards as well as hiring patients into your workforce to truly amalgamate the pharma and patient voices.
  • Redefine your patient outreach and engagement strategy: Become digitally native to engage with maturing virtual communities and social media influencers. Provide in-person and virtual touchpoints to meet new patient preferences by refining pandemic hot-fixes, advancing telemedicine capabilities, and scaling pilots to enable better decentralized care options
  • Achieve diversity, inclusion and health equity from pre-clinical to post-launch: Ensure every voice living with the disease is represented proportionately in mindful advocacy partnering, patient panels and in clinical trial data to generate valuable PROs, meet approval requirements to provide the best possible patient journeys
