Industry is beginning to recognize this role and the importance of a more integrated approach to Patient Advocacy. Professional Patient Advocates in Life Sciences (PPALS) is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the function of Patient Advocacy within the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. PPALS represents, supports and encourages individuals to achieve the goal of improving the lives of their respective patient communities.
To further this goal PPALS is performing research that will help to determine the feasibility of advanced education programs in Patient Advocacy. As part of this research, we are asking a number of groups to participate in a survey;
*Patients / families impacted by rare diseases
*Pharmaceutical and biotechnology human resources staff who hire patient advocacy professionals
*Patient advocacy professionals themselves
This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Click this link and you will be taken to another site to begin.
