The Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) has released a patient-centered framework developed to help researchers interested in conducting rigorous patient preference studies for medical device design, development, evaluation, and regulatory submissions.  “Using Patient Preference Information in the Design of Clinical Trials” outlines a systematic approach for patient-focused clinical trial design to better meet patient needs and priorities.

MDIC encourages clinical trial sponsors to incorporate patient perspectives into the total product life cycle, from research and development to clinical trial design, and regulatory decision-making, patient preference studies is a valuable methodology for sponsors. Click here to download the “Using Patient Preference Information in the Design of Clinical Trials” framework and learn more about this approach to collecting, analyzing, and applying patient preferences into the medical device development and regulatory processes.
