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.

#DemandDiversity: Why cultural safety is an important step towards achieving diversity in clinical trials
In our recent Demand Diversity research, a Black American participant said, “I wish people were more educated. Doctors are supposed to treat everyone the same, not have favourites. They need unconscious bias training.”

How do ethnic minority groups in the U.S. view clinical trials?
This year, we decided to do the same with ethnic minority communities over in the United States (U.S.) too. Ultimately, we wanted to explore attitudes towards clinical trials from these communities, understand the barriers in participation, and determine what factors may influence people’s decisions to take part.

Three things to consider when using social listening research for patient recruitment

#DemandDiversity: We’re calling on the clinical trials industry to include us all
The lack of diversity in clinical trials is something we’ve spoken about time and time again. By now, you might think we sound a bit like a broken record. But, the fact is, many people still aren’t aware of the underrepresentation, especially those who don’t work in the industry. Do you think if the clinical research industry could see the people they were leaving out of clinical trials, and hear how they felt about being underrepresented, it would make a difference?
