Sharing Best Practice in Patient Engagement and Support Programmes

The PM Society Patient Engagement Interest Group seeks to explore and support initiatives to improve the way in which we involve patients in the decisions, strategies and policies that shape their healthcare.

One of our key objectives is to bring together parties from industry, patient groups and consultancies to collaborate and share their knowledge and experience of engaging with patients. Our aim is to collate current best practices and support improved engagement and partnerships with patients and their representatives across the industry.

Ultimately, we plan to create actionable guidance, based on the delivery of successful patient engagement and support programmes and the lessons learned along the way.

Would you be interested in assisting with this Best Practice Sharing Initiative?

Please contact if you would be interested in helping to shape and deliver this important initiative and have best practice examples that you could share. We will liaise with you to discuss the confidentiality of your example and to organize the best way to capture your experiences.

“We must start engaging with patients on how they take medicines and ask 'what would help you to get optimal benefit?'”
