Collaboration between pharmaceutical companies and patient advocates often requires both parties to sign contracts that define the terms and conditions of the collaboration, covering such matters as confidentiality, intellectual property, copyright, data protection, compensation and other responsibilities of one or both parties.
The project is led by Myeloma Patients Europe on behalf of the Workgroup of European Cancer Patient Advocacy Networks (WECAN), in close partnership with Patient Focused Medicine Development (PFMD). It builds on an extensive consensus process of a multi- stakeholder workgroup of patient advocates and legal experts from different pharmaceutical companies, supported by independent legal experts from academia and a legal firm.
