CDRH has made partnering with patients an ongoing strategic priority and since 2012 has advanced a number of initiatives to make that strategic vision a reality. This webinar provided an update CDRH’s patient-centered initiatives being undertaken under MDUFA IV, including the Patient Preference Initiative, the Patient Engagement Advisory Committee, and patient-reported outcomes. We also learned about the AWAKE Sleep Apnea initiative, a patient-focused medical product development meeting and survey that will bring patients and caregivers affected by sleep apnea together with representatives from CDRH, the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, and life science companies (both pharmaceutical and medical devices). Slides are available here.
