CISCRP’s Patient Advisory Boards

Archive Version – listen to our free archived webinar to discuss how a growing number of sponsors, contract research organizations (CROs), and research centers are turning to Patient Advisory Board panels to solicit patient feedback on various clinical research-related areas – including the improvement of protocol design, study feasibility, recruitment and retention, and collecting a deeper understanding of patient perceptions and receptivity to current approaches, new practices, and technology solutions.

For several years, CISCRP has been organizing and facilitating patient advisory board panels with great success. CISCRP has a team in place to assist with all aspects of patient advisory board activity including board strategy development and planning; board member selection and engagement; board venue identification and development; discussion guide and board materials development; meeting(s) coordination and facilitation; and analysis, compilation, and dissemination of board suggestions and insights.

As an independent non-profit organization, CISCRP is uniquely positioned to assist companies and institutions in organizing and running their patient advisory board panels. CISCRP’s extensive relationships with patient advocacy groups, patient communities, and former study volunteers play a key role in ensuring the best board composition.

This webinar demonstrates how Patient Advisory Board panels are a vital approach to engaging study volunteers and enhancing their participation experience, and how CISCRP can work with your organization to facilitate a successful patient advisory board strategy.
