It’s pharma’s turn to inspire.

You’ve been inspired by patient stories. But now it’s pharma’s turn. Time to show we can be more than just inspired, more than just listeners, and capable of putting words into practice.

For 2019, we have a practical focus on transforming the whole pipeline - R&D, clinical trials and commercial - demonstrating how patient-led design can reduce cost whilst driving effectiveness and value.

The Patient Summit is the only event you need if you’re looking for hands-on industry examples, the critical success and challenge factors, and the answers to issues ranging from compliance to culture. No more theory, time for action.

I attend eyeforpharma every year: they truly know what pharma companies need to do, to serve patients. Gitte Aabo
CEO, LEO Pharma

5 years ago, I connected with Paul Simms at eyeforpharma. After our first conversation, I was actually shaking... could it be possible that someone had actually crafted an event that included all areas of the healthcare space AND embraced the patient perspective? He had, and it was an honour and privilege to attend. This year, I am in awe of the progress that has been made. The patient voice is loud, strong and utterly respected. Please lend your voice to this wonderful chorus of compassion. Heidi Floyd

You guys up your game every time. An amazing conference where leaders at all levels can share, learn, grow and develop. Jennifer Muszik

4 Reasons to Attend:

  • Case Studies: Practical, tangible advice and actions from your peers which you can put into practise in your own company
  • Patient & Pharma Collaboration: Co-presentations with Pharma and patients to share real examples of collaboration
  • Break down silos: When you attend eyeforpharma Patient Summit, you get free access to the co-located Marketing & Customer Innovation Summit to learn topics and collaborate with colleagues beyond your department
  • All Stakeholders in one room: Working together to ensure we are engaging in solution focused exchanges across all departments
We are committed to the principle 'no talk about the patient without the patient' and have embedded this philosophy throughout our design of this conference:
  • Patients co-created this agenda, in keeping with Patients Included guidelines
  • Patient leaders will set the tone, giving the opening address on both days
  • More discussion is patient-led, with co-presentations now in 2/3 of sessions and patient-led roundtables
  • All patient speakers are supported through a fair market value policy
