Individual pledge to Patients is a demonstration unifying the whole research community with the same approach of a personal commitment to work with patients for patients. Taking the Pledge to Patients means looking at your everyday activities and asking, “is the patient perspective clearly addressed in everything that I do?” Taking the Pledge to Patients means committing to simple, measurable and sustainable patient-centred principles, that will lead to better and more meaningful patient and healthcare outcomes.
Making a Pledge to Patients involves commitment to 3 guiding principles: listening to patients, co-creating strategies and solutions with patients, and communicating openly and clearly with patients. Are you ready to commit?
