Patient engagement: how end-users can help you develop better medical products

Input from end-users can make innovations more successful by complementing technical knowledge with practical experience. In the life sciences and healthcare environment, involvement of end-users is commonly called ‘Patient Engagement’. We recognize the importance of end-user involvement for the success of new healthcare developments.

During this session, speakers will share experiences and learning points from different perspectives. They will discuss success stories as well as common challenges and share ideas on how to overcome them. You will hear about experiences of engaging patients at different stages of developing a medical product, ranging from research & development, through registration, to bringing the product to the market successfully.
