The Patient Voice in Generic Drug Development

Wednesday, November 9, 2022

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Patient groups represent an important ally for the review and approval of generics. The cost and access benefits of generics are understood the most by those that take them, and patients offer a unique perspective when advocating for changes among policymakers. In this session, speakers will discuss best practices for supporting patient advocacy groups and helping to amplify patient voices to enact real change. Ultimately, this session will explore the role of patients in drug development and the tools that can be used to improve the patient perspective.
