Patient Engagement for the Life Sciences

Patient Engagement for the Life Sciences, written by Guy Yeoman and Mitchell Silva with editorial and design support from Cuttsy+Cuttsy, explains the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of patient engagement. It presents the compelling argument for why life science companies need to embrace and partner with patients and outlining an operating framework for doing it effectively.

We’re really proud to have been working with Guy Yeoman and Mitch Silva on their new book, Patient Engagement for the Life Sciences. To celebrate the book launch, we’ve been talking to Guy about why patient engagement is so important to pharma. I’m a firm believer and I’m passionate about effective patient engagement. I think it delivers value for the industry, but also for patients and society at large. My background is in the pharmaceutical business. I’ve been working for the last two decades in the industry, and over the last three years I’ve built a patient-engaging capability for a large pharma organisation. So I come with that corporate, strategic background. The co-author of the book, Mitchell Silva, is a patient. He’s a patient expert himself, he’s a EUPATI scholar, and he’s built a virtual patient network for patients with cancer. So between us we bring both perspectives. We demonstrate clearly in the book why the industry needs to change, but also how it needs to change and what operating framework could be put in place that enables effective patient engagement, delivering value for both the industry as well as the patients and allied stakeholders.
