Patient engagement programs

Patient engagement programs empower patients to achieve better outcomes

An effective patient engagement program also fosters a collaborative relationship between patients and healthcare providers.

Engaged patients are:

  • More knowledgeable about their health
  • More willing to follow treatment recommendations
  • More proactive in managing their care

Studies have also shown that good patient engagement is associated with improved clinical outcomes, such as better chronic disease management and reduced hospital readmissions.1

Additionally, engaged patients tend to have higher satisfaction with their healthcare experience.2

Patient leaflets

Patient leaflets are an important tool for engaging patients and providing them with essential information about their health conditions, treatments and care plans. These educational materials should be written in clear, easy-to-understand language, and tailored to the specific needs and literacy levels of the target population.

Well-crafted patient leaflets can help patients better understand their condition, make informed decisions about their care, and actively participate in managing their condition.

Patient support programs

Patient support programs are designed to provide patients with additional resources and assistance beyond their standard medical care. These programs may offer counselling, access to peer support groups, financial assistance, transportation, or other forms of practical and emotional support.

By addressing the holistic needs of patients, patient support programs can improve treatment adherence, reduce barriers to care, and enhance overall well-being.

Continuous evaluation and improvement of patient engagement programs is key to ensuring their long-term success and impact on patient outcomes.

Compassionate use programs

Compassionate use programs allow patients with serious or life-threatening conditions to access experimental treatments that expensive or not yet approved for general use. Materials required include informed consent forms, patient education resources and regulatory documentation.

Clinical trial enrolment

By educating patients about the benefits and risks of clinical trial participation, healthcare providers can encourage patients to consider enrolling in studies that may offer access to cutting-edge treatments or contribute to medical knowledge.

Successful clinical trial enrolment programs require patient-friendly educational materials, and a streamlined enrolment process.

Surgery posters and leaflets

A surgery poster or leaflet, displayed in an HCPs waiting room can help remind patients of important health messages and encourage them to raise health concerns with the HCP.

Risk management programs

Risk management programs are designed to identify and mitigate potential risks to patient safety and wellbeing. They may involve educating patients about medication safety, fall prevention, or other health-related risks, and empowering them to take an active role in managing these risks.
