These patients will be available to answer questions about their clinical trial experience. It is a great opportunity to learn about the realities of a clinical trial directly from the patient’s point of view. PATIENT ENGAGEMENT TOOLBOX: The conference room will be set up in rounds for easier interaction and each table will be provided with a paper “Tool-Box” and an assortment of specially designed materials to help capture ideas. Each session will conclude with a list of key takeaways presented from the session representative. As a result, each attendee will walk away with a toolbox full of ideas that will support their patient involvement initiatives.
