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.

What you can do to help make invisible illnesses more visible?
Before we begin, you might be wondering what exactly an invisible illness is. An invisible illness is an umbrella term for any medical condition that isn't easily visible to others. This can include chronic physical conditions like arthritis and diabetes, or mental illnesses.

#DemandDiversity: Can new medical publication guidelines help fix diversity in clinical trials?
Over the last 8 months, JAMA have been working on a new set of guidelines for research papers looking to publish with them, which is summarised in their latest editorial release, “The Reporting of Race and Ethnicity in Medical and Science Journals”. Substantial changes have been made in the race/ethnicity data section. But what does this mean?

The unheard, unseen, and uncorrected effects of COVID-19
The disproportionate effects of the pandemic have been highlighted amongst ethnic minorities, so is it likely that ethnic minorities will be more worried about participating? And could this exacerbate inequalities in representation in COVID-19 clinical trials?

Abbie's (associate copywriter) first 6-months at COUCH Health
Like many others. Abbie spent the majority of her time over the last few months indoors. Yet, the last 6 months have gone very quickly. This is mainly due to the fact that, somehow, she managed to land herself a pretty good job during the height of a global pandemic.
