MDIC’s 2020 Patient Engagement Forum
MDIC held its Virtual Patient Engagement Forum on November 18, 2020.
The Forum provided opportunities to virtually engage with patients, patient groups, medical device industry, investigators, healthcare providers, payers and regulators to learn and share challenges and best practices for communicating uncertainty, benefit and risk of medical devices to patients. Two Interactive Activities allowed attendees to discuss the current challenges in communications these difficult topics and then brainstorm possible solutions based on learnings throughout the forum.
During the forum, attendees heard directly from experts on practices for communicating benefit, risk and uncertainty, and mediums to communicate such as shared-decision making and device labeling to understand how engaging patients can help tailor effective messaging. Attendees had the opportunity to hear directly from patients on their perspectives and first-hand experience with these types of communications.
