Why You Should Attend
The Content: As more than half of the stages in a pharma brand’s customer journey are led by the patient, engaging patients is critical for the success of many pharmaceuticals. However, this is a relatively new area of expertise as pharma’s focus has historically been on HCPs and because communication has become much more complex in today’s digital and multi-channel world. This unique course teaches hands-on methodologies that are backed up by patient research findings and that use multi-channel tactics to activate patients and to support them in their therapy. The theory is brought to life with multiple, real-world, best-practice cases and group exercises and discussions.
The Experts: Our experts, Lara Brum and Livia Dobes, combine a unique and interesting background in both pharma (Medical Affairs) and consumer marketing. At Across Health, Europe's leading consultancy specialised in omnichannel customer engagement strategies for life science organisations, they have worked on numerous cutting edge projects helping pharma companies define patient-centric strategies and manage multi-channel patient activation and support programmes.
The Multi-Channel Patient Engagement Course is the only available public training course delivered by Lara and Livia on the topic of patient-centric multi-channel marketing.
