Pfizer is proud of its long history of successfully partnering with patient organisations that share our purpose to deliver breakthroughs that change patients’ lives.
Patients are now, more than ever, equipped, informed and empowered to define healthcare in their own terms. At Pfizer, we recognise the importance of harnessing the power of patient experiences. It is only through working together, that we can truly personalise patient care, and continue to deliver better healthcare for the people that matter most – patients.
Pfizer has several key areas of interest where we are looking to partner with others. Our partnering activities encompass:
Identifying specific needs of patients and how we can better support them;
Harnessing these insights so that we can always put the patient need first;
Operating with a high degree of transparency so we can be confident and proud of the relationships we’ve developed.
"In recent years, Pfizer has expanded its efforts to listen to patients across communities, including advocates and opinion leaders. Their voices have directly led to improvements in how we design and carry out our clinical trials and programs."
Andy Schmeltz, Pfizer Global President of Oncology
Patients’ voices are integral to shaping clinical research and development.
Working together to raise awareness of sepsis through the campaign "Just ask - could it be Sepsis?"
Scientific advances in medicine development are increasingly influenced by engagement with patient populations.
We believe transparency is essential when working with patient organisations.
At Pfizer, we know that patients and caregivers are the experts in their conditions and it’s essential that we collaborate when designing and delivering clinical research.
