ProgressForPatients.org, by Friends of Cancer Research (Friends), is an online advocacy education program to help patients, advocates, and caregivers acquire the necessary tools to effectively communicate with drug researchers, developers, and regulators.
Engaging, Educating, and Empowering Patients
ProgressforPatients.org is bringing together patients and their advocates as we work to incorporate the patient voice into research and drug development. We strive to then connect advocates with opportunities taking place at institutions and organizations across the regulatory landscape from government agencies, advocacy groups, industry partners, and more.
What You’ll Take Away:
- Understanding of the drug development and regulatory process, as well as the requirements and guidelines associated with drug approvals.
- Comprehension of key terminology frequently used in product development and regulation.
- Gaining a baseline knowledge of clinical trial design, statistical reporting of trial results, and regulatory pathways for drug approval.
- Increased awareness of opportunities for patient engagement across all key stakeholders in the health ecosystem.
ProgressForPatients.org has educated patient advocates who are now actively involved in advocacy opportunities at institutions and organizations across the regulatory landscape with government agencies, advocacy groups, industry partners, and more.
