What is the Pledge to Patients
The pledge to patients is an initiative created and endorsed by PFMD members. The objective is not only to talk and work towards better patient engagement (PE) in a closed circle, but to actually drive culture change in the entire healthcare system.
“The patient is in the center of everything that we do”. This is the kind of statement we keep hearing across industry departments, clinical institutions, patient advocacy organisations or regulators. But even if It became such a common statement, usually it feels like something someone else should do.
The Pledge to Patients campaign aims to give every individual in the healthcare system and PE community the opportunity to make concrete commitments for patient engagement. Even the smallest actions can drive change.
