Patient Focused Medicine Development – PFMD
Making systematic patient engagement a reality! Across medicine and device lifecycles, digital health, data and health systems for better outcomes.
PFMD is a not-for-profit collaborative initiative benefiting patients and health stakeholders by designing a patient-centred healthcare system WITH patients and all stakeholders. They co-create ways for companies to improve their Patient Engagement Management practices.
Integrating the voice of the PATIENT across the lifecycle of medicine
Patient Focused Medicines Development (PFMD) aims to transform the way in which we understand, engage, and partner with patients globally in the design and development of research and medicines by focusing on unmet patient needs. We are bringing together and synergizing disparate but complementary efforts that integrate the voice of the PATIENT across the lifecycle of medicine.

About the PEM Suite
The PFMD network is making sure to aggregate existing knowledge and tools, identifying good practices and coherently combining them before designing accessible and useful avenues for the various audiences that will use them.
The result is the Patient Engagement Management Suite (PEM Suite). A hub of co-created tools, resources and practices to help stakeholders adopt patient engagement in a systematic, efficient and meaningful way. Including How-to guides that our editor helped to co-create.

Our CEO and Co-Founder Carole Scrafton is one of the many contributors to the PEM Suite. She worked on the How-to Guides. A series of guides that aim to help educate how to implement patient engagement into your research and development practices. A brief overview can be found below of the main guide she contributed to. Access to it can be found in the PEM Suite
How-To Guide for Patient Engagement in the Early Discovery and Preclinical phases
This guide takes you step-by-step through an innovative process of identifying key patient partners, gaining important insights that help improve early research from unmet needs, developing research methodology and fostering important and long term partnerships.

Advocating for a Multi-Disciplinary approach to all aspects of medical healthcare.
To help develop, nurture and help to create a multidisciplinary approach to all aspects of medical healthcare so that #chronicillness & #raredisease patients can receive the type of care and treatments that they need.
The work we do involves disease awareness, health awareness, and, helping to point people in the direction of where to get legitimate health communications and information. As well as this we attend events and use patient voice to get important messages to help create better systems and processes for patients.
Bridging the gap between stakeholders is a different type of awareness raising. It involves sharing events and campaigns by clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, patient led projects, healthcare providers… the list is quite variable. We have newsletters to ensue this which uses our slogan – #chronicillnessVOICE for everyone #notjustpatients
