Track: Innovation

Session Number: 2038
Date: Tue, Sep 26th, 2017
Time: 4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

Description:

Patient-centric care requires patient-centric education. First and foremost, educators and providers must acquire a meaningful understanding of the barriers HCP face in developing a dialogue, creating shared goals and ultimately personalizing care for their patients. Patient advocacy groups are a valuable resource in helping IME professionals understand and execute successful patient-centric programs.

This moderated Q&A panel will introduce 3 top advocacy executives to the IME community along with an IME professional who has successfully partnered with advocacy groups to executed numerous patient-centric CME programs. The panel will include 45 minutes of moderated questions and 15 minutes for audience Q&A.

Examples of questions to be explored:
* What do patient groups know about CME and how do they want to be involved?
*How can we help HCPs better understand and empathize with the patient?
*What can we do to help patients feel more empowered in their discussions with their healthcare provider?
*Can you share some successes you've had partnering in IME and what are some lessons learned?
* what kinds of data are advocacy groups currently collecting and how does that add to the value of outcomes data?

*The third panel member will be an executive level representative of a nationally recognized patient advocacy group such as PFF, Project Inform or IFAA. To be determined based on scheduling and availability. Donna Harris will serve as the panel moderator
