As patients are recognised as an increasingly integral stakeholder in the delivery of health services and for the pharma and life sciences industries, ethical and regulatory considerations can create a barrier to building appropriate and meaningful partnerships.
 
The PM Society Patient Engagement Interest Group has been set up to examine the potential for industry to add real value in ensuring patients are included in decisions, strategies and policies which shape their healthcare.
 
Opportunities are as wide as securing insight and involvement in the design of clinical studies, to considering caregiver burden, helping patients to access products, and adherence. As such and over time a wide range of industry, patient and NHS representatives will be called on to contribute to the group, which has no fixed membership.
