Why partner with iCAN Research? Here is what a few of our industry sponsors have to say!
“Meeting and networking with iCAN chapter coordinators was helpful in building relationships to help us with patient engagement business needs. Specific contacts for business need were also made after the summit.”
“The thought-inspiring presentations led by youth advisers created new champions among the industry representatives who attended the summit to support our focus group activities. Inspiring this kind of internal advocacy at sponsor companies is important, as supporting pediatric initiatives within a company needs champions across all developmental functions.”
“Digital Health is critically important and we learned something valuable and unexpected from the clinical research presentations by the youth presentations … the industry leaders in the room considered the tension between the relatively slow research cycle compared with the fast pace of advancing digital health technology and wondered about these digital natives who expect what we consider cutting-edge to be a basic offering. Having this kind of insight into the expectations of the next generation gives us the right ideas for what solutions we need to create.”
“Focus group feedback: Product Acceptability Case Report Form – We sought and gained insights for the following points: Confidence in the use of the proposed rating scales, information on ability of youth to understand the concept behind the questions, identification of gaps in questions on certain product forms, estimate of time to complete product acceptability CRF. It was valuable to get an international perspective in one setting, but a limitation of the session is that focus group participants were skewed to adolescent age range and the intended audience for the scale will include younger children as well as adolescents.”
“Informal atmosphere and networking with other sponsors, academic representative, youth, parents and patient advocates helped sponsor attendees build relationships with other key stakeholders who are trying to advocate for pediatric research.”
