Patients as Partners Europe 2020 conference report

Patient engagement: Actions speak louder than words

Improving patient engagement is something that clinical research companies have discussed for years. Many, many years. Yet there’s still too little headway made in putting that talk into action. And it turns out the organisers and speakers at the Patients as Partners Europe conference agree.

In January 2020, COUCH Health’s medical writers jumped on the train down to London to attend the 4th annual Patients as Partners Europe 2020. This year, the program was co-produced with industry, patient advocacy and public sector voices and focussed on demonstrating how patient engagement and involvement is put into action.

The good news? Foundations for effective patient engagement are now largely in place. But now is the time to take real action to drive patient engagement across the board. Because in reality, actions speak louder than words.

How to lessen site burden with a targeted patient recruitment strategy
Picture this: you’ve created your patient recruitment strategy and you find more and more patients are undertaking the pre-screening, you probably think – success! But then you find out, getting too many patients to sign up could actually hinder the process.

Patients are ready to embrace decentralised clinical trials, are you?
Traditional clinical trial designs simply can’t withstand the impact of COVID-19. While before the pandemic, some in clinical research were beginning to adopt virtual components, the move towards designing hybrid decentralised trials was slow. But when it became clear that existing and upcoming clinical trials wouldn’t be able to run as planned, biotech and pharma companies have been scrambling to work out how they can take their trial out of the clinic and into a virtual setting.

Clinical trial recruitment on podcasts: is it a good idea?
The pharmaceutical industry is already using social media and search engine advertising for clinical trials, so why not consider podcast platforms too?

Can eLearning improve patient recruitment and retention?
Some patients will still want to read pages of informed consent forms before joining a clinical trial, or want timely updates on paper rather than a notification on their phone. Whereas some would prefer to see a virtual reminder, watch videos, and take online questionnaires. The point is: there needs to be options. And that’s where eLearning comes in.

Whats the difference between patient engagement and patient experience?
