PRLog - June 23, 2014 - NEW YORK -- Patients – the very people that medicine is dedicated to – need to be a part of the audience at every medical conference! Patients for Clinical Research is dedicated to making that happen, because you can’t build patient-centered medicine without patients in the room!
Patients for Clinical Research wants to send Citizen Scientists (patients) to medical conferences, covering their registration fees and travel costs. That way, medical professionals will be able to work directly with, and hear from, patients on the issues important to both sides of the healthcare transaction.
Savvy patients do most of their advocacy work “for the love of the game” – in other words, they get no compensation. The funds raised with this campaign will help us fund patients’ efforts to share their knowledge and insight with the professional medical community.
Our crowd-funding campaign on MedStartr is dedicated to building a war chest that will pay the way for our Citizen Scientists to medical conferences around the world. Full details: http://www.medstartr.com/
Our goal is to open up new collaboration channels for patients, medical professionals, and researchers that will accelerate research development, and let patients find partners for studying their own conditions. We got your patient-centered medicine right here!
Here’s an idea: ASK PATIENTS! Patients for Clinical Research (visit http://www.patientsforclinicalresearch.org) will make that happen, by putting patients in the room at medical conferences. That way, when a question related to patient engagement or participation in research gets raised … you can ask the patients in the room if it’s a good idea, or a clunker! Save millions on management consulting fees by asking the patients who attend your conference. Simple, easy, EFFECTIVE.
