In the last years, patients have been included as valued partners in clinical trials serving on governance committees and project teams. The Patient Partnering in Clinical Development (PPCD) is a yearly event addressed to any figure involved in any aspect of clinical research with a deep interest in patient engagement and patient empowerment in all phases of Clinical Research, belonging to
- Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, and Medical Device companies
- Academic Research
- Patient Associations
- Regulatory authorities
- Health outcome specialists
- Healthcare Organizations.
Patient engagement in clinical trials and increasing patient empowerment are the main topics of PPCD. They are discussed by leading experts that are carefully selected by the scientific board. The Scientific Board selects the topics to be covered, the speakers and the moderators.
The arguments treated in the previous editions include:
- Patient engagement in clincal trials
- Partnering with the empowered patient
- Real World Evidence
- Regulatory aspects and compliance
- Recruitment and retention solutions
During PPCD all the arguments are presented and discussed depicting real experiences and successful stories.
The PPCD is organised and managed by LS Academy according to the code of good conduct, to ensure the higher scientific quality of contents. All participants (attendees, speakers, moderators) are asked not to promote any product or service. Only sponsors can promote their commercial activities and products in one-to-one and/or at booth meetings.
Furthermore, at the end of the PPCD, all participants are asked to provide their feedback through ad-hoc questionnaires. The answers are carefully revised and analysed by LS Academy, together with speakers, moderators, and sponsors, to ensure the satisfaction of those that will attend future PPCDs.
We look forward to meeting you at the next PPCD on… in…..
