Rare Disease Registries: Practical Ways to Build Trust with Patient Advocacy Groups

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Patient Recruitment & Retention, Drug Discovery & Development,
  • Thursday, October 14, 2021 | 11am EDT (NA) / 4pm BST (UK) / 5pm CEST (EU-Central)
  • 60 min

Patient advocacy groups (PAGs) are key allies in the development of rare disease registries to fully describe these illnesses and develop new treatments. With the right planning and understanding, collaboration between drug development companies and PAGs can be mutually beneficial in a number of key areas, including:

  • Patient engagement — PAGs are key representatives of patient concerns. Patients are very interested in learning about their disease and helping new therapies to become available. They experience research fatigue because of the high burden of their illness. The PAGs surface these concerns and provide mitigating solutions to keep patients involved in long-term rare disease registries.
  • Data accessibility — PAGs focus on data ownership and ensuring data reaches the widest possible audience. They are looking for solutions for making the rare disease registry studies they sponsor, or participate in, more accessible to all stakeholders, including patients, providers and industry partners.
  • Research sustainability — PAGs maintain societal concern about their disease despite other competing health concerns. At the same time, diagnosis and treatments for rare diseases change over time so rare disease registries need to evolve to stay current. There is a natural partnership between PAG and pharmaceutical sponsors to ensure that the most relevant information is collected in a rare disease registry.

Register for this webinar for guidance on developing rare disease registries that satisfy the needs of PAGs, patients and pharma. Join featured speakers to learn about:

  • Practical ways to build PAG and pharma trust and collaboration
  • PAG concerns regarding data sharing and ownership
  • Building a relevant and sustainable research tool
  • Practical strategies for patient engagement, collaboration, multi-sponsor support, data sharing and ownership, including case study examples
