Patient Experience

The Patient Experience (PE) Initiative seeks to facilitate and accelerate the industry’s progression towards a future where the patient experience is enhanced in clinical trials and patient burden is reduced.

Rationale

TransCelerate’s Patient Experience Initiative tools are intended to provide more effective ways to engage with patients in the design and execution of clinical studies.

The Patient Protocol Engagement Toolkit (P-PET) facilitates the design of clinical studies with patient inputs.

The Study Participant Feedback Questionnaire (SPFQ) Toolkit is a set of questionnaires administered at the beginning, during and end of the study to improve studies by learning from patients.

Benefits

Benefits for Patients:

  • Increased engagement through better communication and feedback processes
  • Increased understanding of the value in participating in clinical trials
  • Potential increase in the sense of altruism due to the confidence of knowing that their participation and feedback in trials may improve future study volunteers’ experiences
  • Potential decrease in the burden of participating in clinical trials

Benefits for Sponsors, Sites and Investigators:

  • Potential improvement in patient recruitment, retention, and adherence within clinical trials
  • Potential reduction in long term costs through more effective patient engagement
