P6210325The Highlights

Doug Bain delivered a insightful keynote presentation that challenged attendees on how to think about about patient engagement in today’s clinical trials. The discussion looked at the use of social media and the many systems and websites such as WebMD, PatientsLikeMe, etc., that are regularly referenced by patients and how this trend is setting new standards for communication.
