This meeting will engage a variety of patients and patient groups related to the device ecosystem. An objective of NEST is to fully engage patients in its development and function in all aspects. The workshop will gather lessons learned and best practices for patient engagement in evidence generation (planning, collection of data and information, analysis, and dissemination).
The workshop proceedings will document all discussions during the program, focused on how patients are engaged with real world evidence generation for medical device or device and drug combination evaluation. Lessons learned will be drawn from work going on in PCORnet, in Coordinated Registry Networks (CRN) and other community based activities relevant to the development of NEST.
