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.

What do the experts say?

Dr Graham Wylie, CEO at MRN, has over 25 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, working Pfizer, PAREXEL and Healthcare at Home. He was also named as one of the most influential leaders in the pharmaceutical industry by PharmaVOICE 100 in 2014. He's written about the future of patient-centric clinical trials...

"More community trial support services are needed to reduce the cost of providing services in the home and to make more types of visits possible to run in the home or local community. MRN data indicates we typically undertake about half the visits of a trial in the home. To increase this we need to take more of the services that presently come from the hospital and move them into the community."

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.
