About the Conference:

The role and prominence of patient advocacy efforts continues to increase, as advocacy executives interact with external stakeholders from early product concept and throughout the commercialization of products, bringing the patient perspective into product development and research all the way to collection of post-market outcomes data. At the same time, pressure throughout the industry, from pricing and reimbursement and the focus on value-based care to corporate compliance concerns surrounding appropriate actions and support of external stakeholders requires a thoughtful balance and well considered approach.

Topics to Be Addressed:

  • Linking advocacy efforts to product development & commercialization
  • Compliance requirements in expanding advocacy outreach efforts
  • Effective communication & outreach to lay persons & caregivers
