Patients are the experts in their disease and its impact, and across the research enterprise, stakeholders are working to identify how to best leverage this expertise to enhance trial design, conduct, and overall relevance to patients. This session will provide patient, regulator, and industry perspectives on how this goal can be achieved. Speakers will review key FDA, Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative, and sponsor initiatives designed to bring the patient into the conversation as trials are designed, implemented, and their results reviewed. Presenters will discuss challenges faced and offer ideas on how these challenges may be proactively addressed.

Learning Objectives

Discuss key FDA initiatives related to patient engagement and how these may better incorporate the patient perspective into all stages of drug development; State a patient perspective on how patients could be better engaged in trial design and recruitment and learn about a project to facilitate patient engagement and recruitment.
