Foster an Integrated Approach to Patient Advocacy through Patient Engagement, Public Policy Education, and Stakeholder Collaboration
In its 8th year, the Patient Advocacy summit provides an opportunity for pharmaceutical manufacturers to join together with patient groups, patient leaders, and policy makers to discuss ways to tackle the complexities of patient advocacy and the health care market. As the role of Advocacy continues to advance, an organization's advocacy strategy must represent the voice of the patient during drug development, clinical trials, product market access, commercialization, public policy and legislative efforts, as well as ensure robust engagement and education of our patient populations.
