Join us for our Patient Engagement Forum – March 26, 2020, in Washington, DC. 

The Patient Engagement Forum will provide interactive opportunities to engage 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. During the forum, we will also discuss practices for communicating patient preference information in device labeling and shared decision-making to understand how engaging patients can help tailor effective messaging.

Attendees will have an opportunity to sit side by side with patients, FDA, industry, providers, and payers to discuss the challenges and to brainstorm possible solutions as well as an opportunity to hear patients’ perspectives on their first-hand experience with these types of communications.

Who should attend?

  • Patients
  • Patient engagement advocates
  • Regulators
  • Healthcare industry members
  • Physicians
  • Payers
