    Writing for Patients: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How?

    With an ever-increasing drive towards patient centricity in healthcare, many of us will have the opportunity to be involved in direct patient engagement or education at some point in our careers. Writing for patients can be rewarding because we can see how our work enables people to become more informed and active participants in their healthcare and can improve outcomes. We use different skills when writing for patients versus writing for healthcare professionals and other audiences, and different rules, best practices and regulations apply. In this webinar we join Medical Communications and Patient Recruitment team members from IQVIA to discuss life writing for lay audiences. From supporting clinical trial participants within a clinical research environment to supporting patients in managing their medications and conditions, we consider what is needed to do this effectively. On our panel today we have Joanne Barwell, Hannah Birkett, Sue Harris and Rebecca Thurston. And we answer questions from the audience.

    In conversation with Alan Thomas, Patient Advocate

    In this webinar, we're joined by Alan Thomas who runs Ataxia and Me, a patient charity based in Wales with a global following. Ataxia and me focuses on Ataxia, but also includes associated rare diseases and movement disorders. Alan has partnered directly with MedComms agencies, biopharmaceutical companies and other industry groups in his quest to ensure that patient voices are heard more clearly. He has been a frequent conference speaker and is a strong supporter, for example, of PLS (plain language summaries). The increased appetite across the industry in recent years for engaging real life patients in communications activities has now coincided with the digital disruption in established working practices that has been accelerated by the COVID pandemic. On-line conferencing and social media platforms mean his mobility problems no longer need restrict Alan's advocacy activity in the same ways. But what happens in real life? Is the industry really walking the walk as well as talking the talk? Join us for wide-ranging conversation. And we answer questions from the audience.

How do we improve the attendee experience? What is important to think about? How do we improve medical education? ECTRIMS 2022 will be a hybrid congress - onsite and online. What will that mean in practice? And we answer questions from the audience.
