INNOVATING WITHOUT PATIENT PARTNERS IS JUST GUESSING.
Why partner with patients?
Patient partners are revolutionizing health professions training, research, policy, and healthcare delivery by lending their first-hand experience and expertise. At ExPPect, we celebrate this patient engagement revolution and want to catalyze change in even more facets of care and practice.
Who is the client?
The client can be any individual or organization who recognizes the value of patient engagement–even if they are not sure how patient engagement “works”. We work with medical educators, research entities, clinical professional societies, patient advocacy organizations, and most importantly, patient partners, to create and launch authentic patient engagement solutions.
How does it work?
The types of services provided depend a great deal on the project and client. We will work with you to create a patient engagement strategy–a plan to partner with expert patients–in the development and execution of your initiative. We can recruit patient partners for you or work with patients with whom you already have a relationship.
