Patient Engagement in the National Evaluation System for Health Technology (NEST): Lessons Learned, Best Practices, and Future Steps

Mark your calendars for Patient Engagement in the National Evaluation System for Health Technology (NEST): Lessons Learned, Best Practices, and Future Steps, a one-day workshop sponsored by the University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (M-CERSI).

About the Event:

Scheduled for Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, Patient Engagement in the National Evaluation System for Health Technology (NEST): Lessons Learned, Best Practices, and Future Steps will engage a variety of patient and patient groups related to the device ecosystem. One of the NEST goals is to fully engage patients in its development and function in all aspects. This workshop will gather lessons learned and best practices for patient engagement in evidence generation, including planning, collection of data and information, analysis, and dissemination.

In addition, the workshop will work towards recommendations for future activities and steps for NEST to more fully engage patients. It will document existing best practices and lessons learned related to how patients have been engaged with real world evidence generation for device evaluation. Recommendations for continued patient engagement will also be developed for device/condition specific areas.
