Patient Centricity

Patient Centricity in clinical trials is key. Our long-term vision is to support the ability to run clinical trials fundamentally based in the community. We want to make clinical trials easier for patients to participate in, ease the burden for them and their caregivers, ensure they are informed, engaged and that they experience the safest and highest quality of care available.

Building Patient Centric Trials, Putting the Patient First - Webinar in Collaboration with CISCRP

CISCRP are the leading non-profit organization dedicated to educating and informing the public, patients, medical/research communities, the media, and policymakers about clinical research and the role each party plays in the process. We've partnered with CISCRP to provide you with an informative webinar that details the importance of patient engagement in clinical trials.

This webinar took place on July 17, 2019, and looked at ways to increase the patient voice and improve the patient experience, ensuring safety and communication remains high.

You can view the recording of the webinar below. Please get in contact if you'd like to be sent the slides or for any other questions

What do the experts say?

Joyce Smith, US Clinical Country lead at MRN, has over 30 years of experience as a nurse and has an extensive background in the clinical care of patients and conducting clinical trials. She's shared some of the knowledge she has learned from her work focusing on patient centricity in a recent blog post...

"This is an exciting time to be involved in clinical trials. The tide has shifted to a patient-centric focus with rapid changes in how clinical trial visits are conducted. More and more clinical trial visits can easily be conducted outside the site, in the patient's home to ease the patient, family-caregiver and site burden."

What do Patients and Caregivers say?

"I like home visits, especially because driving to the hospital... Nightmare. I would much rather have them come to my house. Especially if you're really sick and you can't work or anything, you're always at home anyway, so it's pretty easy, versus sitting in traffic. And not feeling good and sitting in traffic is miserable."

"I felt like I got a break, kind of. That I could go upstairs or go into another room and do stuff, and not have to be there with her all the time. I thought it was really nice, actually. That I could be home - instead of driving to the hospital, and sitting there for hours and hours and hours, and then driving back. I was at home, I could do stuff."

All feedback provided from a recent patient-centric workshop held in collaboration with CISCRP.
