MDIC PCBR Resources for Sponsors – Patient Preference Consultants and Experts list
Since the publication of the MDIC Framework for Incorporating Information on Patient Preferences Regarding Benefit and Risk into Regulatory Assessments of New Medical Technology in 2015 and the publication of CDRH’s Final Guidance on Patient Preference Information in 2016, MDIC has been encouraging its member companies to consider conducting their own patient preference studies as part of their regulatory submissions to the FDA.
One of the most frequent questions the MDIC staff are asked by sponsors and patient groups considering a patient preference study is “Where can I find a list of consultants and experts who might be able to help me conduct a patient preference study?” To help answer that question, MDIC solicited interested parties, including academics and scholars, with experience and interest in performing patient preference studies. The respondents who indicated to MDIC that they are capable of providing support to a regulatory patient preference study are listed below.
Please note that inclusion on this list is not an endorsement by MDIC or FDA. Those listed were asked to provide basic information about their capabilities for inclusion on this list, but neither MDIC nor the FDA has validated this information, checked references, or otherwise validated those capabilities. Sponsors looking to find a consultant to conduct a patient preference study should conduct their own assessment of their capabilities prior to hire.
If you have experience performing regulatory patient preference studies and would like to be included on this list, please contact Stephanie Christopher (SChristopher@MDIC.org).
