Integrating the voice of the PATIENT across the lifecycle of medicine
Patient Focused Medicines Development (PFMD) aims to transform the way in which we understand, engage, and partner with patients globally in the design and development of research and medicines by focusing on unmet patient needs. We are bringing together and synergizing disparate but complementary efforts that integrate the voice of the PATIENT across the lifecycle of medicine. PFMD was established in October 2015 as an open, independent global coalition of health stakeholders.
A globally standardised meta-framework
PFMD is driving co-creation and implementation of a globally standardised meta-framework for patient engagement to make patient engagement more consistent, effective and meaningful. We are taking a rational 4-stage approach to meta-framework co-creation with tangible outputs made available to the patient engagement community at each stage
